Sky Sports is Go.............

Some great news, all those doubters who didn't think this would happen, here is the provisional sheduling for the Super Series to be on SKy Sports. It will be shown 5 days after Croft. Each event after this will be shown on the Thursday after each event, so you don't have to wait long to see yourself in action.

SKY SPORTS announce provisional Croft Rallycross Television scheduling

SKY SPORTS have today issued the provisional transmission times for the opening event in the 2006 Rallycross Super Series (The English Rallycross Masters), which will be held at Croft Circuit on Sunday March 12th. The first television showing is scheduled for Friday March 17th at 6pm on SKY SPORTS Xtra (five days after the event at Croft), which will be repeated on three occasions.

English Rallycross Masters (Croft Circuit) Provisional transmission times:

17/03/06 at 18.00 on Sky Sports Xtra
18/03/06 at 04.00 on Sky Sports Xtra

Only 5 days to go until we finally see some superb rallycross back on tv in the Uk.

Get you video's set for 6pm on friday for the English Masters, the dawn of a new era for rallycross on tv.

Hope the action is good as im sure the weather will of spiced things up a bit.

Will it be shown on terrestrial channel 5 later on, as a mere mortal like myself does not have sky tv.

It'll be awesome to see Rallycross back on TV again - hopefully a terrestrial channel will pick up highlights?

I hardly dare ask this for fear of starting another fight but...

Has the BRC made any progress with a TV deal? The website doesn't look as though its been updated recently. Would be great to see both series on TV.

Not slagging any part of the afternoons events etc, but the TV producers will have a job getting a half hour program together with any racing substance. Plenty of spinning cars though!!

Everyone I've asked who has Sky didn't even know whether they had Sky Sports Xtra anyway!!

You really had to be there to appreciate how cold and windy it was (hence no pics from me either) so I hope the footage does it some justice.

Sky Sports Xtra is also a premium channel you have to subscripe to the Sky Sports Collection on NTL to receive it...

The coverage is wasted, I think more people will watch the Lydden BRC on Easter Monday live actually there at Lydden than will watch this programme on Sky Sports Xtra...

Personally I don't know a single person who has Sky that doesn't recieve Sky Sports Xtra, particularly sports fans.

This kind of coverage is usually seen on the Motorsport Mundial type programs a few months down the line, i.e. on Men & Motors/ late night Channel 5 etc.

The only time I personally will see any coverage of the BRC will be half page coverage in Motorsport News, on the very rare occasions I actually buy it.

IMHO any TV coverage is better than none at all. I know we would all like to see rallycross back on prime time Saturday afternoon terrestrial TV but that is never going to happen again. The main thing is UK rallycross is back on telly, and hopefully its a step we can build on. Who knows if we can build up a head of steam it may be possible to get a slot on a Sunday afternoon on ITV if they revive the Speed Sunday programme.

If the producers need to fill out the footage of the English Masters meeting, I hope they had their cameras running during the Stockhatch and Minicross 'A' finals, they were two cracking races.

I'm another peasant without Sky so I hope it does make it onto channel five or men and motors - from the photos it looks like it would be great to watch.
