Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene - JULY Pho­tog­ra­phy

For­mula 1 is back! Well, sort of. As you read this, test­ing has al­ready be­gun and, al­though you can’t watch live (what fun would that be any­way?!), Ted’s Note­book fea­tures a round-up of the re­main­ing days through­out the week. High­lights of day two (Wed­nes­day, 1730-1800hrs) and day three (Thurs­day, 1715-1745hrs) are avail­able on the re­branded Sky Sports F1. They had a brief spell of peo­ple throw­ing sharp things at a cir­cle on the wall, but now it’s back to rac­ing.

As well as For­mula 1 test­ing, there are other cir­cuit rac­ing pro­grammes on of­fer. High­lights of the Bathurst 12 Hours (Wed­nes­day, 1750-2100hrs, Mo­tors TV), the Day­tona 500 (Wed­nes­day, 2150-2250hrs, Premier Sports TV) and the New Zealand-based Toy­ota Rac­ing Se­ries won by Brit sen­sa­tion Lando Nor­ris (Satur­day, 2000-2100hrs, Mo­tors TV) are all avail­able.

Onto the loose, the Gal­way In­ter­na­tional Rally is fi­nally in the TV guide this week, hav­ing opened the Ir­ish Tar­mac Cham­pi­onship’s new rules pack­age. Garry Jen­nings put on a show and ended his win­less streak in Gal­way in his WRC Subaru Im­preza, while Keith Cronin topped R5 (Fri­day, 2135-2235hrs, Mo­tors TV).

There are also rally high­lights on of­fer, with the poorly named WRC Retro (Satur­day, 2235-2340hrs, Mo­tors TV) show­ing Rally Mex­ico 2015 (that’s not retro!), and the BTRDA’S sea­son opener – the Cam­brian – is also avail­able (Wed­nes­day, 1620-1650hrs, Mo­tors TV).
