You’ve decked the halls, got the chestnuts roasting, made your list (and checked it twice) so now you can sit back, relax and let Motors TV take care of the rest. Here’s what we’ve got coming up over the festive period for an action-packed Christmas and a high-speed New Year.
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, Motors TV was showing the best racing from around the world. We’ve got coverage from round six of the Australian Superbike Championship which took place at Sydney Motorsport Park. Watch the Mick Doohans and Casey Stoners of the future make a name for themselves in this national series. We’ve also got high-performance karting from the best circuits in North America with Superkart USA. And if you’re reminiscing about Christmases past, we’ve got full highlights from the 2014 Historic Grand Prix of Monaco featuring some of the finest (and most expensive) classic machinery on the iconic streets of Monte Carlo.

Once you’ve eaten all the turkey you possibly can – let’s be honest, there’s always room for more – it’s time to put your feet up in front of your favourite High Speed Television Channel. We’re kicking off Christmas morning with probably the best gift you’ll receive this year: action from Lucas Oil Off Road Racing. Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like extreme pick-ups racing on enlarged motocross tracks. And if your dream of a white Christmas fails to come true – it rarely does – we’re whisking you off to the snowy Alps for the Andros Trophy. The round at Alpe d’Huez sees five-time champion Jean-Phillipe Dayraut go head-to-head against current F1 star Romain Grosjean and three-time Le Mans winner Benoit Treluyer on the ice track. We’ve also got some classic racing with replays from this year’s Goodwood Revival, as well as coverage from extreme enduro events Sucker Punch Enduro and Roof of Africa.

If the idea of icy roads and long car journeys to visit the family is not filling you with festive joy, escape to the Caribbean with replays of all the action from this year’s Race Of Champions which saw 13-time F1 race winner David Coulthard crowned Champion of Champions around the Bushy Park circuit in Barbados. Still not quite ready to go back to reality and dark winter evenings? We’re jetting off to sunnier shores to re-live powerboat action from Thundercats Gibraltar, as well as NZ Jetsprint. Finish off your Boxing Day with our comprehensive season review of the FIA World Rally Championship. This season saw Sebastien Ogier clinch the title over the hotly contested 13-round campaign.

New Year’s Day
With the majority of the nation suffering from a hangover, there’s no better cure than the sound of V8 Supercars . Well, there probably is, but we’re still showing a season review on New Year’s Day to help you get through. We’re also looking back over a brilliant season of the FIA World Endurance Championship that saw top manufacturers Toyota, Audi and Porsche battle it out for the title as the series said goodbye to Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen in his last year as a professional racing driver. For the two-wheeled fans out there, we’ve got high-speed Irish Road Racing from the Cookstown 100. There’s also wheel-spinning rally action from around the UK in Special Stage Extra and Maserati Trofeo from the impressive Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.
