7 Feb 2009: F1: Mosley reveals British GP watching brief

19 Jan 2009: A1GP: Could Brands Hatch lose season finale?

Terrible news about A1GP for British fans – Brands Hatch might be in the frame to lose its status as the host of the season finale, a privilege it has enjoyed for the last two years.

15 Dec 2008: Race of Champions: a fan’s-eye view
