Weekend Motorsports Roundup, Jan. 3-4, 2015

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

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?

There's not much going on in the world of motorsports this weekend, although there are a couple live events worth noting.


AMA Supercross has its season opener tonight. Love seeing dirt bikes fly through the air? We hope so, because that's the only live event on TV this weekend.

The Dakar Rally also starts on Sunday, but we don't get TV of any of it until Monday. (Specifically, a recap at 4:30 PM Monday on NBCSN.) Dakar is one of the toughest rallies in the world, with insane racing machines built to handle most any terrain that gets in their way as they move across South America. Jalopnik sent Andrew Collins to write about it for a reason. It's more than kind of a big deal.


There is a live information stream that will supposedly have a video highlight component starting tomorrow on francetvsport.fr, with additional coverage on francetvpluzz.


The offseason is really geared more towards the dwellers of Project Car Hell than it is the casual racing fan. May I recommend Type 4-swapping a K Car to pass the downtime?

If you know about anything we missed, or about good livestreams out there, let us know in the comments below.
