The BTCC Champion talks ahead of the season opener at Brands Hatch

Are you looking forward to defending your crown?
“Yeah, I can’t wait. They’ve brought quite a few champions back as well, so including myself there are gonna be seven champions on the grid, which is really cool.”

Is there a target on your back now?

Lewis Hamilton has a bucket list on his phone.

He’s constantly adding new things: experiences he wants to try, goals he wants to achieve. There’s no particular order, he tells us, but we’d wager that if there were, winning a second Formula 1 world title would be top of the list.

A serious cruciate knee injury threatened to burst Katie Summerhayes’ dreams of making the Winter Olympics. But, after reconstructive surgery, she returned to training in November and won silver at the final competition before the Games – a World Cup event in Gstaad. Sport caught up with her just before her flight to Sochi – where, like fellow Sheffield native James Woods, she is a big medal hope in slopestyle skiing.

Held twice a year in the middle of a forest in Vermont, USA, the Death Race deprives entrants of sleep for more than 48 hours. It has no set start time, no specific end point, and gives racers no forewarning of exactly what they might be asked to do.

Winter Olympics: Speed skating

Sprinting on ice sounds like ITV’s next reality show, but it’s actually a sport dating back to the first Winter Games

As with many winter sports, speed skating is pleasingly straightforward – athletes legging it round a track of ice as quickly as they can on skates. Not one for us (certainly not after we took out a small girl at the Kew Gardens rink last Christmas), but it can provide excellent and dramatic viewing.
