I noticed the Auto GP World Series championship has already been won and it got me wondering at what point in the season the various motor racing championships will be won.
So I thought we could get a list going to note when each championship was decided. If you spot one that’s been decided add it below as follows:
22nd July – Auto GP World Series – Adrian Quaife-Hobbes – Round 12 of 14

Fantastic race, I was on the edge of the sofa for most of that race with the championship being decided in the last few laps of the season. The race also saw the first female points scorer with Powell finishing 8th.9th September 2012, 9:50 at 9:50 am #206899katederbyParticipant
Quite an amazing weekend in GP3, delighted for Evans who has lead from the first race, Abt brilliant rookie season and Alice Powell getting the point she deserved.9th September 2012, 14:04 at 2:04 pm #206900f1alexParticipant
The British Formula Vee championship was won last weekend by Paul Smith at Donington Park.9th September 2012, 14:21 at 2:21 pm #206901

Another Brit climbing the American single seater ladder. Seems like quite a popular option these days.9th September 2012, 23:44 at 11:44 pm #206903Craig WoollardParticipant
Not really titles as such, but IndyCar’s Rookie of the Year honours has gone to Simon Pagenaud of France, a great performance this season. The manufacturer’s title has also gone to Chevrolet, and the road course champion is of course, Will Power, with the oval course champion (RHR or Castroneves) and the overall champion (Power or RHR) to be decided on Sunday.10th September 2012, 9:59 at 9:59 am #206904
9th September – Porsche Supercup – Rene Rast – Monza15th September 2012, 13:54 at 1:54 pm #206905duncanmonzaParticipant
15th September. Matthew Brabham, grandson of Sir Jack Brabham, wins the USF2000 championship and wins a drive in the Star Mazda championship for 2013. I believe he aims for F1, so he could go from Star Mazda to GP3 like Conor Daly did. It would be quite cool to have a third generation F1 driver on the grid, even if only his uncles races in F1, not his father.15th September 2012, 15:28 at 3:28 pm #206906katederbyParticipant
We’ll have to wait to see if Josh Hill can make it to F1 for that to happen, he’s doing ok, so far.15th September 2012, 18:22 at 6:22 pm #206907Felipe BomenyParticipant
I don’t know the specific dates, but Eric Liechtenstein won the Formula Ford EuroCup and Alexandre Baron won the French F4 Championship.16th September 2012, 14:11 at 2:11 pm #206908Joey-PoeyParticipant

I just want to add a note that I actually got to watch him race in the USF2000 race at Mid-Ohio last month and he STORMED through the field from last place on the grid (due to a penalty) up to third! Kid is no joke.
