RACING ROUND-UP - PUBLISHED ON MAY 18TH 2009
Racing review: All the results
AUTOSPORT brings you the definitive who won what, and where, round-up from throughout the racing world last weekend

  By Matt Beer
 
 

The World Touring Car Championship's visit to Pau provided the craziest action of a packed racing weekend. Amid SEAT's fury at regulation tweaks, mass post-qualifying penalties and even a collision between the race two leader and the safety car, Rob Huff and Alain Menu came through to continue Chevrolet's street track winning streak.

At Hockenheim, the DTM and Formula 3 Euro Series kicked off with breakthrough F3 successes for Stefano Coletti and Jean-Karl Vernay, and a return to winning form for Tom Kristensen - just two days after he announced this would be his final shot at the DTM title.

Returnee James Thompson also ended a long absence from the top step of the podium in the British Touring Car Championship at Donington Park, while in America Tony Stewart give his Stewart Haas Racing team its first NASCAR victory in the non-championship All-Star race.

In the two-wheeled world, the MotoGP title fight now looks even tighter after Jorge Lorenzo made up for his Jerez accident with a brilliant Le Mans victory, and left the crashing to his team-mate Valentino Rossi this time.
