Autosport staff talk to some of the key figures from across the sport, including interviews with F1 star Lewis Hamilton, Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen and the greatest team boss in American motorsport history, Roger Penske. It also brings together the only two drivers to have won the British Touring Car Championship four times: Andy Rouse and Colin Turkington.

Special cars to be featured will include current F1 pacesetter the Mercedes W11, sportscar icon the Porsche 956/962, World Rally Championship game-changer the Audi Quattro, the famous BMW E30 M3 and the Ralt RT3, which launched the career of Ayrton Senna among many others.
