It’s a well bal­anced TV guide this week as rallying and cir­cuit rac­ing be­gins to hit full stride.

In the rallying world, high­lights of some ma­jor UK cham­pi­onships are on of­fer, be­gin­ning with a con­tro­ver­sial Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship round in Carlisle (Satur­day, 07300800hrs, Chan­nel 4 and Sun­day, 1630-1730hrs, BT Sport 2). The event fea­tured a third dif­fer­ent win­ner in three rounds, and is­sues with the event caused some dis­con­tent with teams and drivers.

Also in Carlisle was the Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship, which like the BRC also crowned a new win­ner af­ter Ja­son Pritchard had opened the first two rounds with vic­tory (Fri­day, 2135-2235hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Fi­nally, we reach the mud­di­est of this week’s en­tries, from the MSA Bri­tish Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onship. High­lights of the opener in My­herin are on Wed­nes­day 19252030hrs, Mo­tors TV.

Back to cir­cuit rac­ing and there are plenty of op­tions avail­able as well as all the ac­tion from Barcelona ( see live F1).

BT Sport is of­fer­ing up a mam­moth two hours of the se­cond rounds of Bri­tish GT and BRDC F3 that graced Rock­ing­ham re­cently (Fri­day, 08301030hrs, BT Sport 2), while there’s plenty more on of­fer from abroad.

It’s dif­fi­cult not to be a fan of the DTM, which opened its sea­son last week­end with the tra­di­tional Hock­en­heim cur­tain-raiser (Wed­nes­day, 19002000hrs, BT Sport 2). It fea­tures some of the fastest tour­ing cars in the world, wheel to wheel. What’s not to like?
