TV GUIDE

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

With last week­end prov­ing one of the most busy of the sea­son this year, UK TV is just catch­ing up and MN’S TV Guide is here to help.

Both the World En­durance Cham­pi­onship (Wed­nes­day, 1415-1720hrs) and the Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries (Sun­day, 0625-0810hrs, Mo­tors TV) graced Sil­ver­stone with some fan­tas­tic rac­ing. WEC in par­tic­u­lar got its sea­son un­der­way in fine style.

Aw­fully on the same week­end, fans were made to choose be­tween Sil­ver­stone and the Bri­tish GT cham­pi­onship opener at Brands Hatch (Satur­day, 1825-1925hrs, Mo­tors TV). The ad­di­tion of an ex­tended GT4 field and a cou­ple of Bar­well Lam­borgh­i­nis cer­tainly spiced up the ac­tion.

Two more club events are avail­able to watch in high­lights form, with the Brit­car 24 Hours (Thurs­day, 1855-2000hrs, Mo­tors TV) run­ning in its new tour­ing car-style for­mat for the first time. Also on of­fer, the BMW Com­pact Cup made its sea­son de­but at Brands Hatch (Fri­day, 1720-1750hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Onto the loose; the third round of the BTRDA Rally Se­ries (Fri­day, 2135-2205hrs, Mo­tors TV) took place last week­end in Mine­head. Would Char­lie Payne and Luke Fran­cis con­tinue their dom­i­nance at the front of the pack?

Also from the rally world, Cir­cuit of Kerry (Fri­day, 2100-2135hrs, Mo­tors TV) was used by mul­ti­ple crews to pre­pare for the Cir­cuit of Ire­land and fea­tured in­ter­est­ing bat­tles through the field.

Fi­nally, the first in­stal­ment of Se­bastien Loeb v Pet­ter Sol­berg in the World Ral­ly­cross Cham­pi­onship oc­curred last week­end. See how the duo faired in ITV’S ex­tended high­lights (Satur­day, 1125-1230hrs, Mo­tors TV).
