TV GUIDE NEXT WEEK CAN TOY­OTA KICK UP A STORM IN THE WRC?

Motor Sport News - - Interview: Chris Haird -

Why not kick your week­end off with a Classic F1 ti­tle de­cider – the con­tro­ver­sial 1994 Aus­tralian Grand Prix?

In a sea­son marred by on-track tragedy, two driv­ers – Benet­ton’s Michael Schu­macher and Wil­liams’ Damon Hill – en­tered the sea­son finale in Ade­laide with the chance of win­ning the ti­tle, with the pair fa­mously com­ing to­gether in their quest for glory (Fri­day, 21002145hrs, Sky Sports F1).

While there was an­other head-to-head bat­tle be­tween the Mercedes driv­ers this sea­son, 2016 was also a year of new be­gin­nings as Chan­nel 4 hosted cov­er­age of For­mula 1 for the first time. What­ever you made of the chan­nel’s out­put, there’s a great op­por­tu­nity to catch the best bits of an en­thralling cam­paign with its first sea­son re­view – Lewis vs Nico: F1 2016 – a week be­fore Christ­mas (Sun­day De­cem­ber 18, 12301405hrs).

If you want to catch big beasts knock­ing the stuff­ing out of each other to get in the fes­tive spirit, then look no fur­ther than the Bri­tish Truck Rac­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Cham­pi­onship (Thurs­day De­cem­ber 22, 16201750hrs, Mo­tors TV). High­lights come from the fi­nal round of the 2016 sea­son at Brands Hatch, which brought the sea­son to a close in fraught fash­ion.
