With the motorsport season now in full flow across the majority of championships, the action will be non-stop in May. Here’s your full guide and top picks for motorsport on this May.

Formula E Monaco ePrix – May 11

After a year away, the Monaco event returns to the Formula E championship again using part of the iconic F1 Grand Prix circuit.

Sebastien Buemi has won both previous Monaco ePrixs (2015 and 2017) but with eight different winners from eight rounds so far in the 2018-19 campaign, this season’s event will remain just as unpredictable as the rest of the season has been.

The glamour of Monaco always add extra attraction and looks set to suit the frantic city street racing witnessed in Formula E so far this season with the new Gen2 all-electric cars.

BTCC Thruxton – May 18-19

One for the motorsport pursuits. The flash, bang, wallop action of the British Touring Car Championship arrives at Thruxton which is a throwback to a classic age at a circuit which has lost none of its charms.

Originally constructed in 1942 as World War II RAF base, the circuit which circles the runway is one of the fastest short circuits in the United Kingdom and provides a unique challenge to all BTCC machines – while Dunlop also produces special tyres to endure the demands of the Hampshire circuit.

With the circuit only permitted to 12 days of motorsport each year, the weekend marks a special time of the year for all involved.

IndyCar Indianapolis 500 – May 26

One of the most famous races across the world effectively takes place over the entire month of May (while a private test was held in the final week of April), including the Indy Grand Prix two weeks before the main event.

From private testing through to qualifying, time trails and the iconic Carb Day, everything builds up to the crescendo of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday May 26.

All eyes will be initially on Fernando Alonso’s return, as he gets his first chance to complete his Triple Crown target, with the new McLaren Racing effort with Chevrolet power.

Seven rookie will attempt to qualifying and compete in the prestigious race this year including a double Swedish attack from ex-Formula 1 driver Marcus Ericsson and new IndyCar star Felix Rosenqvist.

In an intensely-competitive field, seven former Indy 500 winners will join the action headed up by last year’s defending champion Will Power with Team Penske.

Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix – May 22-May 26

The iconic four-wheeled motorsport events once again clash on different sides of the Atlantic Ocean with Formula 1’s glitz and glamorous elite converging on the streets of Monte Carlo for the Monaco Grand Prix.

While the race can struggle to live up to the billing given the tight, twisty and almost-impossible-to-overtake circuit – unless rain or freak occurrences come up – it means Saturday’s qualifying can be the most important session of the weekend.

Red Bull will fancy its chances to disrupt the front-running dominance of Mercedes and Ferrari, while the intensely competitive midfield could be decided by the smallest of margins in Monaco this year.

MotoGP Italian Grand Prix – May 31-June 2

Before we get accused of bending the rules, yes, the race falls in June but given the round starts in May (and would probably be missed out for June) it would only be fair to include one of the jewels on the MotoGP calendar in this list.

Unrivalled for atmosphere and fan action, Mugello comes alive over the final weekend in May when MotoGP comes to town.

Ducati are back-to-back winners at the Italian MotoGP, while Dovizioso could be leading the championship by the time the paddock arrives in the Tuscan hills, plus a certain Valentino Rossi will always have the lions share of support from the locals.

The track itself remains one of the favourite for riders as its 14 corners are moulded around the landscape along with the hair-raising 1.141km straight which provides some of the most stunning action shots of the MotoGP season.
