Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what's going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?

Happy October, race fans! We've got some great stuff on tap for you this weekend, including Formula 1 in Japan, NASCAR at Talladega, and Superbikes in France. And as a special bonus, this weekend's Australian V8 Supercars race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, will be streaming live on YouTube for all to see. Hooray!
