Quite a weekend! Ferrari returns, a new Nextel Cup points leader, a wild sports car race, a ton of motorcycle road racing, and some fence-climbing in Japan.

A busy weekend coming up. U.S. TV coverage is shown (all times Eastern).

It was a weekend marred by tragedy in motorsports, with the deaths of co-driver Joerg Bastuck in the Rally Catalunya and rookie Paul Dana in the Toyota 300 Indycar race in Florida casting a shadow over the sport.

While Formula 1 takes a break ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, this weekend sees the start of the Indy Racing League and MotoGP seasons, and a return to action for the World Rally Championship series.
