Ti­tle show­downs are the theme of this week’s TV guide with past and present cham­pi­onship bat­tles on the box.

Last week­end marked the fi­nal round of the Indycar sea­son and you can watch all the ac­tion from Sonoma on Thurs­day (1630-1730hrs, BT Sport 2). Si­mon Pa­ge­naud had a healthy lead over Will Power go­ing into the race but tune in to see who took the fi­nal spoils.

Also last week­end was the penul­ti­mate round of the Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship fi­nale on the Rally Isle of Man. The ti­tle race is wide open. (Fri­day 2135-2235hrs, Mo­tors TV).

The Eurocup For­mula Re­nault 2.0 sea­son is draw­ing to a close as well. Tune in this week­end (Satur­day, 2300-2330hrs, Eurosport 1 and live on Sun­day, 1000-1200hrs, Eurosport 1) to see if Brit Lando Nor­ris can clinch the cham­pi­onship with two races to go.

If you pre­fer your ti­tle show­downs to have a retro feel, then there is a Clas­sic F1 ti­tle de­cider be­ing shown this week: the 1998 Ja­panese Grand Prix (Satur­day, 1830-2100hrs, Sky Sports F1).

But if that’s too much ti­tle talk for you, then why not watch the fi­nal spe­cial pro­gramme show­ing high­lights of the Clas­sic Sports Car Club’s visit to Thruxton? Part three is avail­able on Wed­nes­day (19252030hrs, Mo­tors TV).
