Globecast – Le Mans And ALMS Repeats Over Christmas
if you’ve got some time over Christmas – and it won’t annoy the rest of the family too much – why not tune in to Globecast over the holiday, and listen to repeats of Radio Le Mans and ALMS Radio Web coverage of some of this season’s great races?

On Christmas Eve John Hindhaugh presents music and chat from 8am (UK time) then at midday UK time the first 8 hours of the Le Mans 24 opens an extensive programme of race repeats.

"We have split Le Mans up into three parts, with part two the same time on Christmas Day and the final 8 hours on Boxing Day," explains Hindhaugh. "Our international listeners - or any UK fans that can't sleep - can tune in to a repeat of the first part as the UK goes into Christmas Day at midnight, which is 7pm Eastern and 4pm West Coast USA on Christmas Eve."

The Le Mans re-run is just part of a schedule that includes Petit Le Mans (including practice and qualifying) on 28th December from 6am (UK) and again at a more US friendly 2pm (UK) on 29th, Salt Lake City and Portland - from 6am on the 29th and Sebring on the 30th and 31st at 6am and 11.30am respectively.

Although there's an extensive archive of material available at www.radiolemans.com and www.0157.org producer Tim Gray is confident of large audiences. "Not everyone has an MP3 player, or the space to store this race coverage on their computer. Sportscar fans have been asking to hear the best
of the 2006 action again on the channel so this is our Christmas present to them to say thanks for their support this year."

At various times over the festive period Globecast Radio will also be running a series of end of year reviews featuring Hindhaugh and the Midweek Motorsport team. The show, which normally airs on Wednesday at 8pm (UK), has established itself as Europe's number one international motorsport programme and will be casting the usual irreverent eye over the 2006 season of major international series including NASCAR, Champ Car and Formula One.

Full programme details are at www.0157.org and www.radiolemans.com
