TV GUIDE RE­TURNS

BRI­TISH RALLY CHAM­PI­ONSHIP FULL RE­PORT FROM THE MID WALES STAGES WHO CAN CON­QUER THE WRC’S ROUGH­EST ROUND?

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

It’s a his­toric rally fest in this week’s TV guide as the stars align and we get not one, not two but three ma­jor events in the space of a week.

First off the Monte Carlo His­torique, which we fea­tured in last week’s MN. The rally runs a short pe­riod af­ter the WRC event and fea­tured star names like Jean Rag­notti in 2016. It’s not to be missed (Satur­day, 1240-1340hrs, Mo­tors TV).

A very rare out­ing for WRC rally win­ner Markko Martin as he steered a Ford Es­cort around Bas­togne in Bel­gium is also worth a watch, and even cur­rent Citroen star Stephane Lefebvre made an ap­pear­ance. An­other dose of some of the WRC’S great­est ever cars on show (Thurs­day, 1005-1210hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Fi­nally back in the UK we have cov­er­age from the Red Kite (Fri­day, 2135-2235hrs, Mo­tors TV). Not only was it the open­ing round of the Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship, it also pro­vided a num­ber of mod­ern crews the chance to test new cars be­fore the im­pend­ing Mid Wales Stages.

We con­tinue to hail the re­turn of Sky Sports F1 in the TV guide with a Leg­ends of F1 seg­ment on Alan Jones. Now there’s a char­ac­ter with a few sto­ries (Satur­day, 2130-2200hrs, Sky Sports F1).
