With For­mula 1 dom­i­nat­ing your TV screens this week­end, there’s still plenty on of­fer for other motorsport fans.

The re­cent Cir­cuit of Ire­land Rally proved a huge suc­cess, and a first chance to see the Ir­ish Tar­mac Cham­pi­onship sec­tion in a ded­i­cated show is on your screens this week (Fri­day, 2135-2235hrs, Mo­tors TV). Sev­eral of the cham­pi­onship’s driv­ers fin­ished in the top 10 over­all.
