NEXT WEEK YOUR GUIDE TO THE SIL­VER­STONE OPENER

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say - Oul­ton Park, Cheshire

We don’t do this too of­ten, but we’re kick­ing off this week­end’s guide with Bri­tish Ral­ly­cross.

There’s a teen sen­sa­tion tak­ing the Bri­tish scene by storm – Dan Rooke. The young­ster won only the sec­ond round of his rookie su­per­car cam­paign at Ly­d­den Hill (Thurs­day, 0800-0900hrs, BT Sport 2) and he’s one to watch for the fu­ture.

Else­where, high­lights of last month’s Lee Holland Me­mo­rial Rally from An­gle­sey are in the off­ing (Fri­day, 21002205hrs, Mo­tors TV). Ash­ley Field ex­tended his Mo­tor­sport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship lead with two rounds left to play, de­spite the dis­ad­van­tage of hav­ing a ter­ri­ble co-driver…

With just about as big a con­trast as it gets in ge­og­ra­phy, we skip from An­gle­sey to Long Beach where the For­mula E cir­cus re­cently vis­ited. The rac­ing has been of a high stan­dard this year, and if you can get past the lack of noise, it’s a must-watch (Wed­nes­day, 1500-1600hrs, BT Sport 2).

If you’re suf­fer­ing from the lull in For­mula 1 ac­tion, the faith­ful Sky Sports F1 Clas­sic Races se­ries is on hand. This week the 1986 Brazil­ian Grand Prix is among the ones to watch (Wed­nes­day, 2100-2145hrs, Sky Sports F1).

Fi­nally, the newly named BRDC F3 se­ries was in ac­tion re­cently at Snet­ter­ton. The re­turn of ‘F3’ was well re­ceived and a few good races did the rein­tro­duc­tion of the name no harm at all. Lando Nor­ris and Enaam Ahmed starred (Thurs­day, 1310-1415hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Rooke has al­ready proved a sen­sa­tion in 2016
