Thanks to my being signed to present the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship through the winter, it’s already been a busy start to the season in terms of stage miles, and television coverage.
The Motorsport News Championship fired into action with the half way marker in the season in January; the Jack Frost Stages at Croft. With minus four degree temperatures, it wasn’t just the drive to Darlington that proved treacherous.
But, I’m delighted to let you know that I survived the ordeal, and with most of my extremities intact. Well, all actually. Moreover, it was a great way to kick start the year, with some fast-paced action throughout the field, and a star appearance from Bentley GT driver, Guy Smith.
If you fancy catching up with the action, ahead of the next round at Brands Hatch airing on Motors TV this Friday, then here’s the show (and in full HD – HDMI cable at the ready!)…
Back in the forests, the BTRDA and Welsh Rally Championships have contributed to my mileage in the first part of the year, and pleasingly so. The Championships picked up where they left off, the Cambrian swapping from its traditional season end slot, to the season opener.
The TV show goes out at 10pm this Saturday, which will mark the first time Special Stage has aired coverage of an event within a week. Next time out, we’ll be going one better, with the Malcolm Wilson Rally going out in our usual Motors TV slot of Friday night.
If you can’t wait until then, here’s a preview of what you can expect from the official Cambrian Rally TV Show…
As always, thank you for your continued support. I’m looking forward to meeting even more new faces out on the stages in 2016, and of course catching up with those I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting through this sport that has been so close to my heart for as long as I can remember.
See you on the stages!
