Just a headsup for this 3 part series about the history of what is now the BTCC on ITV4 tomorrow (Wed) at 8pm. Should be quite enjoyable for fellow petrolheads.

Cheers, bring back the Volvo 850 R estate!

Presumably black and white footage will show Matt Neal going round Copse as a teenager!

Great stuff, many thanks.

Nothing will beat the late 90's era, for me. Just pure classic racing.

Will this go back as far as saloon cars?

I hope so.

That was a good start to this short series. Glad to hear that 'rule pushing' in motorsport has been going on for decades.

Great stuff, one forgets about things like the F1 crossover and Steve McQueen gadding about.

Damn I missed it!

And I can't see any evidence of a repeat showing.

Didn't know this was on, caught it while skimming through the scheduler, glad that I did.

As an aside does ITV cover rallycross these days?

I don't think so, not since Sky came along 25 years ago.

Bumpity bump just in case.
I'm assuming there's ITV 4 +1 for those who might be a bit late to the party and want to record it.

All your Rallycross, UK/World/European is covered on MotorsTV, indeed on Sky.

Sadly rallycross has been wrecked somewhat by each driver now having to take a 'dummy lap' in each heat, which essentially involves a driver taking a makeshift corner way off racing line and then rejoining the race :S

I missed this weeks episode - will have to catch it on ITV Player

Think I'm right in saying Touring Cars were not covered on TV until the late eighties.
However, I'm sure I've seen that clip of the battle between the teammates in the Capris (Andy Rouse and Win Percy) before somewhere.
A long time ago - but my memory has been jogged from somewhere......

Brilliant series......pity there isn't more Motorsport documentaries aired. Saloon car was always my favourite to go and see though have to admit Historics takes some beating and in a way this almost covered that category (though not actual Historics) from episode one!

Having started this thread I am embarrassed to say I forgot about it on Wednesday (I was watching a dull draw of a football game between two of the best sides in England) but watched it on itv player today. Already set the recorder for next week. Would be nice to see a similar series on rallying with cars such as the Sunbeam Lotus , Chevette HSR , Escort Mk2 and others.

It would......unfortunately about the only way you can now view these is on YouTube. Some cracking Group B memories on there too with 6R4's and Quattro's thundering through the forests!

I'd love to watch these series, but unfortunately I can't find episodes 2 and 4.
Does anyone know where I can watch or download them? it'd be a good practise for my listening comprehension and a spectacular show to watch.
Let me know if you can help me. Thanks
