The ultimate motor racing roundup, covering everything you need to know including: Formula 1, NASCAR, W-Series, BTCC, Formula E, F2, IMSA Sportscars, WRC, Caterham Academy and Challenge, and much more!
Join Lovecars' Tiff Needell and Paul Woodman, plus special guests, in this weekly review covering everything from the world of motorsport.
This week on Lovecars On the Grid podcast, Tiff and Paul discuss NASCAR, Formula E and the countdown to Imola begins!
The ‘Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500’ NASCAR race is first up, and it was typical Martinsvile mayhem all the way. While nearer to home the Formula E boys were winding their way around Rome for a double header weekend.
What do you think of Formula E? Do you like the qualifying system, the often petty penalties, ATTACK MODE!, or how about the fan boost?
Coming up Tiff gives his predictions for true petrol heads starting a big weekend with the Formula 1 at Imola. Will his 1, 2 and 3 be correct?
And a look ahead at Indycar, kicking off at Alabama Motorsports Road Course with F1s ex Grosjean, together with some British hopes – former GP driver Max Chilton, also Ed Jones and Jack Harvey.
Next week NASCAR is at Richmond for the ‘Toyota Owners 400’, MotoGP is in Portugal, but perhaps the main event is surely the Caterham Academy Sprint at Curborough!

Welcome to Episode 3 of the Lovecars On the Grid podcast - the global motorsport roundup!
With no Formula 1 this week it was Extreme E in Saudi Arabia that took the limelight, with Nico Rosberg's team of Johan Kristoffersson and Australian rally driver Molly Taylor, beating Cristina Gutiérrez and Acclaimed French driver Sébastien Loeb in Lewis Hamilton's team in the opening round!
Stand out performance from Catie Munnings who recorded better split times across the final than her team-mate Timmy Hansen. Munnings also kept the team in the hunt for the final after nursing the car home on 3 wheels after a puncture during qualifying.
Christine Giampaoli Zonca had an outstanding weekend and was level with Oliver Bennett across split times in probably the tightest battle between team-mates all weekend. Great to see Carlos Sians on full send! And plenty of beautiful scenery and action from the inaugural Extreme E outing.
Also on the show we catch up on the MotoGP action in Doha, Qatar together with the most incredible NASCAR dirt race!
Oh, and Tiff Needell wins in a McLaren Can Am car at Donnington!
We kick off this week with the first Grand Prix of the 2021 season, the sensational roller coaster ride in Bahrain.
With Red Bull's Max Verstappen topping the practise sessions and leading the grid from pole position, could the Lewis get close to compete in the Mercedes, or would Botas and Perez be surprise contenders? The result was spectacular and a nail biter until the end.
Were the stewards fair with their assessment of Lewis and Max track limits? Who was your driver of the day? Great to see such a ding dong performance from so many pairing including McLaren's Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, with Ricciardo out qualifying Llando, but losing out in the race. Oh and just the 96th career win for Sir Lewis Hamilton!
Also on the grid we discuss MotoGP in Qatar (where are all the British riders?), Formula 2, NASCAR on the dirt, Extreme E, the latest with the Caterham Academy and Tiff is back in the racing seat!
Episode 1 with Tiff Needell and Paul Woodman introducing the brand new motorsport podcast, "Lovecars: On the Grid".
