One driver was penalised for using too much power.

The guy leading the last lap, and who went across the finishing line first, was disqualified because his "tank" became "empty" before the chequered flag.

That's not racing.  Wouldn't attract my attention anyway.

Channel 4, 8pm, Tuesday 15th Sept – Battle of Britain: Return of the Spitfires.

On 15th September 2015, the 75th anniversary of victory in Battle of Britain, an estimated 40 Spitfires and Hurricanes and  Blenheims from across the UK, USA and Europe will come to Goodwood Aerodrome, West Sussex, to take part in an historic flypast over the South of England. The event brings together in one place more Battle of Britain aircraft  than at any time since World War Two.

The event brings together more Spitfires and Hurricanes in one place than at any time since World War Two - all converging on Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex. The roar of 40 Spitfires and Hurricanes starting their engines will transport the airfield back in time to the Battle of Britain, when it was known as RAF Westhampnett and home to two fighter squadrons that fought in the campaign.
Using helicopters and a chase plane, the show will capture all the action as the Spitfires and Hurricanes form ‘Wings’ of up to eight aircraft and embark on routes covering the South of England. It will be a truly dramatic and emotional spectacle as they pass over iconic locations connected with the Battle of Britain, such as the White Cliffs of Dover, Biggin Hill and RAF Uxbridge

The first wing is taking off at 12.00 and should be flying over Basingstoke, so you might get to see some of them.
