Motorsport in August: What's on in the UK during F1's summer break?

There's still plenty of top motorsport to satisfy the petrol head

F1 may be on its summer break, but there is still plenty of top motorsport across Britain to scratch that petrol-head itch in August.

In the British Touring Car Championship, British GT, British Superbikes and British F3, the United Kingdom has some of the strongest domestic series in the world.

British GT and British F3 will both be at Brands Hatch on August 6, while fans of two-wheels can see British Superbikes in action at Thruxton - the fastest track in the country. Donington Park will stage its Classic Motorcycle Festival that same weekend.

The BTCC will head to Scotland on August 13 for three races at Knockhill, with the support race package featuring British F4, giving you the chance to see some feature F1 stars.

The following weekend, August 20, the British Superbikes are on track again at Cadwell Park.

Then the Formula 1 season resumes with the Belgian GP, with every session live on Sky Sports F1.
