That’s it for this week. Yes things are pretty slim for racing fans but take heart as I mention there is light at the end of this tunnel.
Only 18 days after this preview is posted it will be time for Round 1 of the Supercross series or Anaheim 1 as it’s also known by. And for you off road fans it’s only 17 days until the Dakar Rally begins down in South America.
Have a great weekend everyone.
