Posted: March 27, 2014 11:21 AM

The television coverage of round two of the 2014 West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship, the Mid Wales Stages, will be broadcast on Motors TV on Friday (28 March) starting at 9.35pm.

The 90-minute programme, produced by Olly Dickinson and narrated by David Addison, covers the full story of the Welsh event as a record field of 75 R.A.C. crews tackled the epic Pikes Peak, Myherin and Hafren stages. The programme will be repeated several times on Motors TV, including at 5.45pm on Wednesday 2 April.

Alongside the TV coverage, the entire R.A.C.

The free iRally App is available for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices and offers an incredibly popular rally video channel.

Support for coverage of the 2014 WWRS R.A.C. Rally Championship comes from TV partners Amigos, JD Garage Equipment, Jordan Road Surfacing, Lloyd-Thomas Opticians, Lynwood Classic Engines, Rally and Competition Equipment, rallyprep.co.uk, Robinson Road Planing, Skipton Ford, Sherwood Engines and Swift Leisure.

Revised TV plan confirmed for R.A.C. Rally Championship

Posted: February 13, 2014 9:41 AM

The new television package for the 2014 West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship has been confirmed following the sad loss of David Winstanley last month.

Olly Dickinson will take over the project and will lead the programme editing and production as well as presenting and on-event interviews. He will be supported by renowned motor sport commentator David Addison, who will deliver the narrative to the programmes.

“We can never replace David Winstanley, who has a special place in the affections of all rally fans,” said championship manager Colin Heppenstall. “However, we are very pleased with the new arrangement. I’m sure that Olly is going to be a great addition to the R.A.C. team and he brings a real passion for historic rallying. I’m also very pleased that we have been able to give a hard-working young guy this opportunity.”

“I’m delighted to have the chance to come on-board with this rapidly growing championship and I look forward to producing quality TV coverage,” said Dickinson.

Addison, meanwhile, is best known as the lead voice for live ITV4 coverage of the British Touring Car Championship and has extensive experience of commentating and narrating right across the sport and up to the highest level.
“This will be a new challenge for me,” he said. “I’ve always been a real fan of rallying and historics in particular, and I’ve heard a great deal about the strength and popularity of the R.A.C. Championship.”

The new team will start its coverage with the action from round two, the Mid Wales Stages, which is scheduled to air on Motors TV on Friday 28 March. Details of the coverage of round one, the Red Kite Stages, will be announced shortly.

Each championship round will be covered in detail in a 90-minute programme on Motors TV with multiple repeats and there will also be an end-of-season review programme to give the championship over 50 hours of TV coverage. Initial broadcasts will run in prime-time slots, typically three weeks after the rally.

Alongside the TV coverage, the entire R.A.C. Rally Championship will again be available on iRally and will build on more than one million views achieved in 2013 for the championship and the Roger Albert Clark Rally. The free iRally App is available for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices and offers an incredibly popular rally video channel.

Support for coverage of the 2014 WWRS R.A.C. Rally Championship comes from TV partners Amigos, JD Garage Equipment, Jordan Road Surfacing, Lloyd-Thomas Opticians, Lynwood Classic Engines, Rally and Competition Equipment, rallyprep.co.uk, Robinson Road Planing, Skipton Ford, Sherwood Engines and Swift Leisure.

The West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship is the only championship that runs historics first on the road on all events.
