Week four since global motorsport ground to a halt and as yet there is no sign of when any kind of 2020 season might be able to resume. But fear not readers, the NTT IndyCar Series and Formula 1 both did their very best to bring their fans something that will get them back in front of their television sets once again...


 
On the NTT IndyCar Series front, this experience is starting to get very realistic and on early Saturday evening, fans were treated to the virtual Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama from a virtual Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama, the second race in the series' attempt to create content during the worldwide shutdown of sports. And what an amazing show it was with most of the current IndyCar drivers on this grid for the race. Kevin Dejewski reports.
 
Meanwhile we should have been watching the first ever Vietnam Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend and F1 brought us the virtual Vietnam Grand Prix, albeit being raced over the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne. Although still lacking in quality (both the grid and the graphics), that their IndyCar cousins have mastered, this week we did at least have six of the current F1 drivers on the grid although one didn't make the start, again. Kyle Francis reports.
 
On other fronts, Phillip Horton takes a look back at some of the strangest Formula 1 race starts in history, and yes, the US Grand Prix at Indianapolis in 2005 is on the list. And talking of strange facts, Davey Euwema has done the research on the 10 best drivers who made it in sportscars after leaving Formula 1; it's a very interesting list! Finally, David Ledbitter was cleaning out his archives again and founda report on the 2006 Zulu Rally, SA's WRC candidate event held in KZN, fascinating...
 
And as always we have all the usual news, views and stories in this week's edition of the most widely read weekly motorsport magazine in the world!
