17th - 23rd JanuaryAsian Festival of Speed
We kick off this week’s top televisual highlights with action from the Asian Festival of Speed. Regular viewers should be familiar with the concept by now but for all you Motors TV converts out there, the premise is a simple one. Three hours of Eastern motorsport action featuring a swathe of exciting single-seater and GT racing. This week we set a course for Sentul where rounds 8 and 9 of the Formula BMW Asia series take place before hot-footing it to Chengdu for both Formula Renault V6 and 2.0 highlights.

Most drivers dread the cold and icy conditions but these guys positively embrace it, slipping and sliding their way between snow banks sideways.
