Watch highlights from NASCAR’s chaotic final round before the Playoffs at Indianapolis, Blancpain GT racing from the Hungaroring and Euroformula Open racing at Silverstone

NASCAR

Indiana, Indianapolis

Kevin Harvick wins a frenetic Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard. Multiple big names crash out as drivers attempt to make the Playoffs in the final round before the 10 deciding races. Jimmie Johnson’s unprecedented run of never missing the NASCAR Playoffs since its introduction in 2004 comes to an end as the seven-time champion crashes out.

 

BLANCPAIN GT

Hungaroring, Budapest

Orange FFF Racing’s Andrea Caldarelli and Marco Mapelli wrap up the inaugural Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe drivers’ championship. A fourth-place finish in race two puts the title out of reach for rivals Maro Engel and Luca Stolz of the No4 Black Falcon Mercedes-AMG team.

 

EUROFORMULA OPEN

Silverstone, Northamptonshire

Japanese driver Toshiki Oyu dominates on his debut weekend to take both pole positions and race wins at Silverstone. Oyu opens up a gap in both races at the very start to storm to back-to-back race victories on his first weekend, having moved over from the Japanese Formula 3 championship.
