TV GUIDE RETURNS
BRITISH RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP FULL REPORT FROM THE MID WALES STAGES WHO CAN CONQUER THE WRC’S ROUGHEST ROUND?
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).
