For the first week of Autumn, Formula 1 heads to the Black Sea Riviera for the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday morning. Expect all eyes in Sochi to be on Vettel and Leclerc as Ferrari chases their fourth win in a row after last week’s one-two finish in Singapore.


If F1 isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty more to see this weekend, with NASCAR returning to Charlotte and BTCC racing at Silverstone. If those tracks are too curvy for you, maybe you’ll want to tune into NHRA at Gateway. And if they just aren’t curvy enough, the VLN season is finishing up at the Nürburgring this weekend as well.
