What better than a 50th anniversary to kick off the MN TV guide, with the Historic Sports Car Club celebrating the milestone at Castle Combe. The club recreated its first ever race held at the same circuit using cars that competed in the first race, with the other HSCC counters all competing on an emotional and brilliant weekend. Action is available on Motors TV (Saturday, 2100-2205hrs).
Sticking with circuits, there’s plenty to catch up on in this week’s guide. If you’re an endurance fan, the second round of the World Endurance Championship (Thursday, 2235-2340hrs) and the latest round of the Blancpain Endurance Series (Thursday, 1240-1445, Motors TV) are a must watch. WEC visited Spa while Blancpain headed to Silverstone.
There’s a club marathon also on Motors, with three Scottish championships gaining over two hours of action. The Scottish BMW Compact Cup, Formula Ford 1600 and Classics and Sports Saloons were all in action at Knockhill (Wednesday, 1720-2000hrs, Motors TV) .
On the loose, Rally Portugal takes centre stage ( see WRC TV) but there’s plenty more on offer.
British Rallycross featured at Pembrey recently in what is turning out to be an exciting season in the popular championship. Kevin Procter and Julian Godfrey split the wins but rookie sensation Dan Rooke extended his championship lead (Wednesday, 2235-2340hrs, Motors TV)
