SIX RACES, FOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS - TWO DAYS, ONE CHANNEL.
There’s only one place to be for motor racing fans this weekend as Motors TV brings you eight hours of LIVE coverage from the world’s premier motorsport categories. Bikes, prototypes, saloons and single-seaters; Motors TV has it all as the season enters its critical final quarter.
Warm-up for the weekend’s motorsport marathon with round nine of the American Le Mans Series LIVE from Detroit on Saturday afternoon. Audi might have dominated the championship in recent years but the arrival of lighter Porsche and Acura prototypes has offered stiffer opposition in 2008. With the championship far from decided, the picturesque Belle View Island Raceway should provide the perfect backdrop for a titanic title scrap. Live coverage begins from 19:30.
If two-wheels are more your thing then settle down for Sunday dinner with the MX2 MotoCross World Championships, LIVE from Dublin at midday. Just three rounds remain in the season with Britain’s Tommy Searle still very much in contention for the title. His win and second place at the previous event were cancelled out by South African team-mate Tyla Rattray, whose lead at the top of the standings remains just 20 points. Will Tommy take a step closer to becoming Britain’s first world champion since 2001? Tune in to find out. Both races are live from 12:00.
Next up, we cross the Irish Sea and head for Brands Hatch where V8 power returns to the Kent countryside in the form of Europe’s fastest and most prestigious touring car series, the DTM. The circuit’s flowing but compact nature has all the right ingredients to provide the sort of spectacular, panel bashing tin-top action fans have become accustomed to. With home favourites and title protagonists Jamie Green and Paul Di Resta, as well as former champion Gary Paffett all vying for victory, you can get behind the Brits when Motors TV’s LIVE coverage commences at 13:00.
Still hungry for more automotive action? No problem because Motors TV is serving up coverage of races 13 and 14 of the F3 Euroseries. With just nine points separating the top four and only a handful of rounds remaining, Brands Hatch could be the turning point of the season. Former A1GP champion Nico Hulkenberg heads the cast of young stars hoping to follow in the footsteps of Lewis Hamilton on the path to Formula 1. Jon Lancaster’s podium in the F3 Masters event at Zolder three weeks ago makes him Britain’s best chance of victory in a field that includes three other home-grown hopefuls. Motors TV has coverage of both races from 16:00.
