TV GUIDE F1 IS BACK!
NEXT WEEK ACTION FROM THE OPENING TEST SESSION IN BARCELONA
The TV Guide is bereft of circuit racing at the moment. Luckily there is plenty of rallying action to keep people entertained.
The opening round of the BTRDA Rally Series – the Cambrian Rally – kicks us off, with some of the bumper entry using the round as a warm-up for the reborn, upcoming British Rally Championship. The series also boasts some new series for 2016 including the ST Cup (Saturday, 1025-1050hrs, Motors TV).
With last weekend’s Rally Sweden in jeopardy seemingly all of last week, you can catch highlights of all the goings on this week. Elfyn Evans, Kris Meeke and Craig Breen uphold British and Irish honour, with Breen steering a woks-spec DS 3 WRC for the first time this year. Watch on BT Sport 1 (Wednseday, 2230-2300hrs), or on Motors TV (Saturday 1240-1340hrs).
Finally, MN’S very own Circuit Rally Championship is back in the guide this week with January’s Brands Hatch Winter Stages covered. Wet weather meant the event was treacherous and brought about some shock results (Friday, 2135-2235hrs, Motors TV).
The final instalment of slippy stuff comes from the brilliant Andros Trophy. The ice racing series boasts ex-f1 drivers including Olivier Panis among its drivers, and the championship reaches its conclusion with the beautifully named Saint die des Vosges round (Wednesday, 23050115hrs, Motors TV).
Meanwhile, there is live Tarmac action available. One of the biggest sporting events of the year in America – the Daytona 500 – returns the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series to action for another year, although will it be the same without the legendary Jeff Gordon? (Sunday, 1700-2200hrs, Premier Sports TV)
There’s also a chance to catch up with the latest news and action in the allelectric Formula E Championship, plus highlights of the epic Buenos Aires race which took place earlier this month. The battles went right down to the wire (Saturday, 1730-1800hrs, BT Sport 2).
