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?


Alright you crazed, petrol-headed, racing-obsessed Jalops. I'll be straight with you about this weekend. There's not much going on.

In the last weekend before Thanksgiving, we're mired in random replays and old episodes of Pawnstars where Corey and the other fat one are still fat. Yeah, it's that bad.

But! There's hope!

We still have one Formula One race still in our systems. One last race, to prove who is the best, who can win the championship, who can take it all. (Hint: It's Sebastian Vettel. And Fernando Alonso's clinched second place as well.) Yes, the championship is as good as over, and yes all the teams have already been working on the 2014 F1 season's cars for years now, but the Brazilian Grand Prix is a classic race.

Not only are Brazilians just F1-crazy, but Interlagos is a pretty good track. Throw in the first real threat of real rain all season, and we potentially have some interesting stuff on our hands.

Rain always separates the good drivers from the great drivers, and Ayrton Senna was the master of it. Last year's Brazilian Grand Prix was marred by rain, and 2009 World Champion Jenson Button managed to take the win. His car isn't as competitive this year, but who knows what can happen? It's the end of the season, rain is falling, all the campers are going home, Marcine, the cute girl you've been eyeing since color war ended is finally going back to New Jersey... anything is possible, is what I'm saying. If you don't believe me, check out last year's race:

Now that ain't bad at all.

Of course, while we normally reserve the Weekend Motorsports Roundup to what's showing here in the USA, it's always open to everyone who loves racing. With that being said, I want to extend a special invitation who feels like there's some motorsports going on around the world that we might be missing. Winter Is Coming, and with that the barren lands of a heart with no racing. So leave a comment, and let us know what's going on!


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.

All times Eastern.
