Way, way back, before the dawn of time, the Australian Grand Prix was due to take place and coronavirus was just a glint in a Wuhan bat’s eye. Well, actually it was earlier this week but before everything went to shit and the race was cancelled. Still, Cheeka, Terry and Phill went to the pub to talk about testing and see where we were ahead of the season that now probably won’t start until Baku. Maybe Williams will be front runners by then?
John Hindhaugh has the week’s motor sport news, including a look back at the opening round of World Superbikes, and testing for the next generation NASCAR. Eve Hewitt reports on how motor racing is being affected by Covid-19, and there’s a special feature from Bentley in Crewe.

National Motorsport in the UK has always been a focus for Autosport magazine, which of course is celebrating 70 years in 2020. It’s sometimes overshadowed by how much Formula 1 gets talked about, but our readers have been telling us they want more from National racing, so we’ve launched a new supplment to hear. And in audio form, here is a new podcast from the team. On the show today join Stephen Lickorish, Autosport Editor Kevin Turner, and your host of the national podcasts Stefan Mackley.
