Motorsports Weekend Guide: January 16 to January 18

Here’s another summary of who is racing what this weekend across the globe and the U.S. This week, most of the racing is focused locally in the States and while this forthcoming weekend is relatively quiet, the racing picks up in a hurry starting next week. The completely brief guide to motorsports series alluded to in last weekend’s guide is still in progress, but it is coming along rather nicely. Make the jump to see more detailed info.


24 Hours of LeMons: Sonoma Raceway

The country’s crapcanniest, most irreverent racing series begins its season with the “Good Effort Grand Prix” at their hometrack in California’s wine country. The race should feature a smaller number of entries, probably similar in count to the sprint race run with NASA NorCal about a year ago. See the race preview tomorrow for more on this weekend’s race.
