The motorsport season is officially off and running, as Formula Two began its season in Valencia, half way through the year.
However, elsewhere, everyone seemed a little distracted from what was (or wasn't) going on on the track.
F1 took a week off to cross the continent, while everyone and their wife decided to try and enter it next year.
NASCAR took to wonderfully alliterative Dover, Del. for round 13, while everyone was looking to Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s new chief.
And Indycar was back to tiny fields and processional racing, while everyone was trying to work out whether Tony George still had a job.
