This year marks the 30th an­niver­sary of F1’s re­turn to the Au­to­dromo Her­manos Ro­driguez back in 1986, and you can catch the Clas­sic F1 ac­tion tonight with high­lights from that sea­son’s Mex­i­can Grand Prix. Ger­hard Berger bat­tled ill­ness and ri­vals to claim the first of his 10 wins (Wed­nes­day, 2100-2145hrs, Sky Sports F1).

The na­tional mo­tor­sport rac­ing sea­son has died down now, but there’s still a chance to watch high­lights from the fi­nal round of one of the BRSCC’S most pop­u­lar, and com­pet­i­tive, one­make series – the Mazda MX-5 Su­per­cup (Thurs­day, 1720-1825hrs, Mo­tors TV). James Blake-bald­win and Tom Roche were locked in bat­tle for the ti­tle, and Sil­ver­stone cer­tainly threw up a dra­matic end to the sea­son. A day later there’s ac­tion from the ul­tra-com­pet­i­tive and well-stocked BMW Com­pact Cup series fi­nale at Sil­ver­stone, and that’s fol­lowed im­me­di­ately by high­lights of the Porsche cham­pi­onship from the same meet­ing (Fri­day, 1720-1750hrs, Mo­tors TV and 1750-1855hrs).

There’s no such ab­sence of sea­sonal ac­tion for rally afi­ciona­dos, though, with plenty of ac­tion to come through­out the win­ter. One of the stand­out events on the na­tional cal­en­dar has just taken place, but thank­fully all the key mo­ments from the Mull Rally are avail­able in con­densed form if you missed any of the ac­tion (Sun­day, 0720-0810hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Berger’s first win is clas­sic fo­cus
