Af­ter an epic World Rally Cham­pi­onship opener in Monte Carlo, it’s an­other rally-dom­i­nated TV guide as most of the cir­cuit rac­ing world is yet to arise from its slum­ber.

Kick­ing us off, there’s an­other chance to watch Monte Carlo high­lights if you’ve been un­der a rock for a week and a half, with Kris Meeke chal­leng­ing Se­bastien Ogier for the vic­tory (Thurs­day, 14151515hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Stick­ing with the WRC, there’s a chance to catch last year’s Rally Swe­den be­fore the lat­est event takes place next week. It was a cracker that went down to the last stage, with three driv­ers in con­tention for the win (Satur­day, 1750-1855hrs, Mo­tors TV).

While the post­pone­ment of the Euro­pean Rally Cham­pi­onship-count­ing Rally Liepaja means there’s no snow-based view­ing from Latvia on of­fer this week, there is some ac­tion from our very own MN Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship cour­tesy of last month’s Jack Frost Stages at Crof where Le Mans win­ner Guy Smith tri­umphed.

For cir­cuit rac­ing fans, the 24 Hours of Day­tona ran last week­end, and one of Amer­ica’s ma­jor GT races failed to dis­ap­point as the IMSA Sportscar Cham­pi­onship got un­der­way in Florida. There’s plenty of works-backed cars and a hand­ful of Brits to keep an eye on, in­clud­ing Ford’s Andy Pri­aulx. (Sun­day,1210-1415hrs, Mo­tors TV).
