Motors TV To Air New Show
Tuesday of next week, July 13, will see Motors TV launch
a brand new motorsport programme, called Motors Talk. Presented
by ALMS Radio and Radio Le Mans frontman John Hindhaugh, the programme
promises to break the mould of sports talk shows.
"We'll be reviewing recent motorsport events and nothing will
be taboo," said Hindhaugh. "I want guests who have an
attitude and are prepared to express an opinion!" With BTCC
ace Matt Neal and former Pacific F1 driver and current ALMS pilot
David Brabham as two of the first guests, it's not hard to see things
It's not just the guests who need to be forthright though, says
Hindhaugh. "This is as much about the fans as the guests, it's
not often they get to interact directly with their heroes, particularly
in this situation with no barriers on what we can and can't discuss.
So if someone wants to ask Brabs about the state of current F1 they
can... in fact I hope they do!"
Oh crikey, this
could get nasty….. Hindhaugh near an F1 debate...
Another key feature of Motors Talk is that it will not
be tied to a studio, the opening show coming live from Rockingham.
working with teams, circuits and drivers to take the show to them,
giving viewers an 'insiders' look at some of the venues," confirmed
executive producer Adrian Bourne. " PMA TV has extensive experience
of outside broadcasts gained on projects like Ascar. Motors
Talk poses some new challenges, especially with the interactive
elements of phone and e-mail contacts," explained Bourne. "Fortunately
our satellite broadcast partner Globecast has all the technology
we need at its fingertips. They are looking after the Olympics so
this is relatively easy for them."
The first Motors Talk is next Tuesday, just after the British
GP, and the week before ALMS at Infineon Raceway…..so will
there be enough to fill an hour?
"F1 always throws
up a couple of talking points, even if it's just how ‘quiet’
the race was," affirms an unusually diplomatic Hindhaugh.
"Plus we can look
forward to Dale Earnhard Jr making his ALMS debut, DTM, LMES at
Silverstone, BTCC at Croft. I'm not sure how we'll fit it all in!"
like just the thing for dsc subscribers. Go on, check the schedule
and tune in – and e-mail Brabs and ask him what he thinks
of F1. 20.00 BST July 13, we believe.
