Things kick off (hoof off?) with Royal Ascot on 19 July, with the Austrian Grand Prix making up the opening weekend.

The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow takes pride of place 23 July-3 August, mixed in with the Hungarian Grand Prix on 25-27 July. And from 4 August you’ll be able to follow the BBC’s coverage of the anniversary of the start of World War One.
What you won’t be able to see is the World Cup, but never mind: we’ve put together a list of places where you can can watch the football and support your team.
