Clark to present Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
