A nice mix of shows this weekend, with a few new faces for WTWTW. GT Academy is a video gamer meets reality racing competition for Grand Tourismo fanatics. Targa Newfoundland is exactly what it sounds like; a monumental road rally across Newfoundland, Canada (pic below). And there are not one, but two F1 replays this week. First, the German GP from the Ring', and second the GP of Hungary. Top Gear US is back for a new season this upcoming Tuesday on History Channel. Lastly, the guys from Wheeler Dealers flip a VW bus on Wednesday night. Enjoy the weekend all, and watch out for that cold front coming through next week.
