Weekend round up – 3 October 2011 #NASCAR #DTM #NASCAR #BTCC

#NASCAR – not much to report really as one of the Ugly Brothers won and we don’t like them here on these pages. The #48 came up a bit short, but had a good run and a typical chase result for JJ. Is he back?

The Petty boys did well with both in the top 10 and The Dinger managing to lead a lap. Good job guys.

Smoke dropped the ball maybe and slips to joint third in the standings.

#IndyCar – more problems here too for our favourite as Miss B gets released into his path on pit road. Exit the fastest car in the race. Not Miss B’s fault; her crew should never have released her, but pit road saw more that its fair share of chaos last night. Hope those who got hurt get well soon.

Big swing in the points back in favour of Dario. One race to go.

#DTM – One to go here too, but Martin Tomczyk takes the title anyway for Audi in Valencia, the first guy to do it in an old spec car. A great series and should get better next year with BMW back to give Audi and Mercedes some competition.

#BTCC – Another series with one more weekend to run, albeit that there will be three races that day in the current BTCC format. On the Brands Hatch GP circuit two wins for Jason Plato in his Chevrolet put him in front in the title race, but success ballast and the reverse grid held him back for the third race of the day and Matt Neal took a win for Honda and takes a 5 point championship lead into the last trio of races at Silverstone.
