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

A host of motorsport milestones were reached during the weekend, as Mikko Hirvonen completed an amazing turnaround to knock the hitherto dominant Sebastien Loeb off the top of the World Rally Championship, Valentino Rossi clinched his 100th win at motorcycle grand prix level and Joey Logano became the youngest race winner in NASCAR Sprint Cup history.

An all-action weekend at the Norisring culminated in Jamie Green becoming only the second man to win a DTM race in a year-old car after a thrilling multi-car lead battle, and hard-fought Formula 3 Euro Series wins for Jules Bianchi and Christian Vietoris.

Thrills were in short supply at Richmond though, with IRL record-equalling IndyCar winner Scott Dixon apologising to the fans after another processional oval race.

Two of motorsport's youngest series were in action too. Tobias Hegewald left his Formula 2 rivals behind all weekend at Spa, and Liverpool's Adrian Valles and AC Milan's Giorgio Pantano kicked off the second Superleague Formula season with Magny-Cours victories.
