Clark to present British Rally Championship
WRC Live’s Colin Clark has been selected as the host of the British Rally Championship TV coverage in 2016.
Clark is most famous for hosting the stage-end radio coverage on the WRC’S website, but will take up a new role as the face of the returning British Rally Championship along with Jon Desborough, who will provide the commentary.
“I’m looking forward to taking on the new role,” said Clark. “It’s going to be a lot of fun and a really exciting championship.
“I’ve done TV commentary before and things on Youtube but in terms of terrestrial TV this is new for me.”
Clark believes the level of competition in the championship this year will be unprecedented.
“I think it’s shaping up to be one of the best national championships anywhere. I’m struggling to come up with another championship – even WRC2 if you want to include that – that has the breadth of talent in the R5 category. The quality of the drivers is exceptional. The winner of the BRC this year will truly be the best driver in the UK and we can’t say that for the past four or five years for certain.”
