Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

This week the TV guide is tak­ing a trip down mem­ory lane, with an­other week to wait be­fore we re­turn to F1 ac­tion in Aus­tria.

The first of this week’s of­fer­ings is the in­fa­mous Ja­panese Grand Prix, where – per­haps pre­dictably – Ayr­ton Senna and Alain Prost col­lided in what is one of the all-time best re­mem­bered F1 en­coun­ters (Thurs­day, 2100-2145hrs, Mo­tors TV). The other of­fer­ing is the 1986 Mex­i­can Grand Prix, won by Ger­hard Berger. It was his and Benet­ton’s first F1 vic­tory.

There’s also a chance to catch up on some more cur­rent ac­tion this week. The BMW Com­pact Cup is al­ways a thriller (Fri­day, 17201750hrs, Mo­tors TV), while the Metro Cup (Fri­day, 1750-1825hrs, Mo­tors TV) and MG Tro­phy (Fri­day, 2000-2100hrs, Mo­tors TV) were in ac­tion at Sil­ver­stone a few weeks ago.

In the rally world, there’s daily high­lights of next week­end’s Rally Ypres, one of the most highly rated asphalt ral­lies in the world. Catch the ac­tion on Fri­day (2300-2330hrs, Eurosport 1) and Satur­day (23002330hrs, Eurosport 1).

A bit closer to home, high­lights of the North­ern Ire­land Rally Cham­pi­onship’s lat­est round at Ca­van is on of­fer (Wed­nes­day, 1855-2030, Mo­tors TV).
