Weekend Motorsports Roundup, October 5th-6th, 2013S

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 where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?

We're deep in the home stretch of the Formula One season, with races coming (relatively) rapid fire at an every-other-week pace. This week's race will be the fourth Korean Grand Prix, which will be held in Korea this year. Tropical Storm Fitow is not fixing to make a direct hit over the circuit in Yeongam, though it does bring the threat of rain with it.

That may not sound like such a big deal, as F1 cars have wet tires just for that reason, but the last time it rained at the track was at Korea's inaugural race in 2010. The rain was so torrential then that it even forced reigning F1 champion and current racing ubermench Sebastian Vettel to retire:

Then again, Sebastian Vettel sounds quite intent on staying dry this time around.

In non-F1 related events, the American Le Mans Series continues its farewell tour with a stop at Virginia International Raceway, and IndyCar will pound around in two races at a street circuit in Houston. I do love me some street circuit racing, as they tend to be incredibly unpredictable.

NASCAR is in Kansas this week, and you should all make sure to cheer on your favorite stars named Parker Kligerman, who is One of Us.

We know there's been a few site changes recently, so in the interests of comfort and familiarity we'll be keeping the races in the body of the posts. Of course, please use our image annotation tool on the map above to show us races we might have missed, where they're being held, and where we can livestream them.
