- Le Mans preview 911 - We weigh up the chances of Porsche on its return to the top class at the Le Mans 24 Hours and its bid to beat Audi and Toyota to win the biggest race in the world. All three manufacturers have new and very different powertrain packages. Which of the trio is looking strongest ahead of the race on June 14/15? 
- Lunch with… Wolfgang Ullrich - The man who runs the most successful sports car in the modern era – and arguably the greatest team boss we have ever seen at Le Mans. The head man at Audi is hardly gregarious in character, but as our revealing interview shows Dr Ullrich has a quiet humour and authority that hint at why he is so respected within the greatest team in modern sports car racing. 
- Ultimate Porsche 935 - By the early 1980s Porsche’s gonzo 911-inspired 935 was becoming past its sell-by date. But racers such as American John Paul Jr developed the car and lengthened its shelf-life. This car, known as JLP-4, was perhaps the most extreme 935 that exists. We profile the car ahead of its appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. 
- In the Spotlight: Alexander Sims - The young British single-seater racer whose super-sub appearances in GP3 and F3 last year have given him a much-needed career boost into 2014. Sims will drive for BMW in both the Nürburgring and Spa 24 Hours, and should be on course for a top-line career in sports car racing.
