With the Formula 1 and MotoGP seasons now underway, attention turns to the early part of their championship fights through April on opposite sides of the globe - but there’s also action in IndyCar, Super Formula and the British Superbike Championship to tune in to.

Here’s your full guide to all of the motorsport on this April.

IndyCar Grand Prix of Alabama - April 7

Following two thrilling races to kick off the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season at St. Petersburg and the Circuit of The Americas, attention turns to Barber Motorsports Park this weekend for the Grand Prix of Alabama.

IndyCar will roll into Barber still reeling from Colton Herta’s shock victory at COTA two weeks ago that saw him become the youngest winner in the series’ long history at 18.

Penske’s Josef Newgarden will want to continue his impressive record at Barber - he has won at the track three of the past four years - and build on his early championship lead, but will face plenty of tough opposition from the likes of Herta, Will Power, Alexander Rossi, Scott Dixon and Felix Rosenqvist.

April also brings the first back-to-back of the IndyCar season, with the Grand Prix of Long Beach taking place on April 14.

Between the two races, Fernando Alonso will complete his first IndyCar oval test of the year with McLaren at Texas Motor Speedway on April 9 ahead of his return to the Indianapolis 500 next month.

MotoGP Grand Prix of the Americas - April 14

With the opening two rounds in Qatar and Argentina complete, MotoGP continues its run of early-season flyaways with a visit to the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas on April 14 for the Grand Prix of the Americas.

Marc Marquez will arrive at COTA leading the riders’ championship following his comprehensive victory in Argentina, running four points clear of Ducati rival Andrea Dovizioso.

It would be surprising to see that gap fall given Marquez’s perfect record at COTA. He has won every single MotoGP race held at the track from pole position, a streak dating back to 2013. But all records have to end at some stage…

Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix - April 14

The fight for supremacy at the front of the Formula 1 field will continue as the sport visits China in the middle of the month to celebrate a very special landmark.

The Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit will be the 1,000th grand prix in F1 history, with a number of celebrations planned around the events.

But Mercedes and Ferrari will be hoping to have a party of their own at the race, with the two teams poised to battle it out for top honours once again in Shanghai.

Mercedes may have scored a one-two finish in each of the first two races of the season, but Charles Leclerc’s domination in Bahrain prior to his heartbreaking engine failure late on will make Ferrari the favourite heading to Shanghai.

Following China, F1 will then venture to Azerbaijan at the end of the month for - probably - another year of Baku madness.

Formula E Rome E-Prix - April 13

If you wanted even more racing on the April 14 weekend, then you’re in luck: Formula E will be returning from its string of flyaways for the first race of the season in Europe.

Rome was a fantastic addition to the Formula E calendar in 2018, with another exciting race around the streets of one of the world’s most historic cities set to take place on Saturday April 13.

Antonio Felix da Costa will arrive in Rome leading the drivers’ championship for BMW, one point clear of Mahindra’s Jerome d’Ambrosio, but the likes of Jean-Eric Vergne, Sam Bird and Lucas di Grassi are all still in the hunt as the season reaches its halfway point.

Formula E will continue its stint in Europe two weeks later, with the Paris E-Prix set for April 27.

British Superbike Championship Silverstone - April 21

The new British Superbike Championship season will kick off later this month at Silverstone, with the series set to use the national circuit layout for only the second time in its history.

The opening round will see a number of debuts, including that of recent British MotoGP racer Scott Redding, who will team up with Josh Brookes at the Be Wiser Ducati Racing Team.

Redding and Brookes will be racing on the new Ducati V4 R bike, with Silverstone marking the model’s UK debut.

Japan’s premier single-seater championship has a number of familiar names racing this year, including Red Bull junior Dan Ticktum, Formula 2 race winner Artem Markelov and Harrison Newey, the son of F1 design guru Adrian Newey.

- The World Rally Championship continues at the end of April with Rally Argentina. Thierry Neuville currently leads the standings by just two points from Sebastien Ogier after his dramatic Tour de Corse win.

- The new BTCC season kicks off on April 7 at Brands Hatch, and will also visit Donington Park later this month.
