Missed the 73rd Members’ Meeting? Fear not. Not only can you watch all the race highlights and see a comprehensive livestream-best-bits package on GRR, but our friends at ITV be broadcasting it for the first time.
The one-hour-long show will be broadcast in a prime time slot on ITV4, presented Amanda Stretton with commentary from BTCC regular David Addison.
The programme will be first broadcast on Thursday, April 2nd at 2100 and then repeated on Easter Sunday, April 5th on the same channel at 1800. There will be a second repeat on 2345 on Easter Monday, at 2345 on the main ITV channel.
The race action will be frenetic, with extended highlights of the Gerry Marshall Trophy for Group 1 touring cars that featured tin-top heroes such as Matt Neal, Jason Plato and Andrew Jordan in machinery as diverse as a V8 Chevrolet Camaro and a Triumph Dolomite Sprint.
Highlights of the Bruce McLaren Trophy for early Can-Am sports prototypes – the fastest cars to race during the Members’ Meeting weekend – and the Derek Bell Cup for ‘screamer’ Formula 3 single-seaters – which resulted in a photo finish for victory – will also be shown.
The incredible IWC shoot-out that pitched World Endurance Champion Anthony Davidson in a modern Mercedes Formula 1 car against a brand new AMG GT and the classic ‘Red Pig’ AMG 300 SEL will feature, as will footage from the McLaren F1 GTR and high-airbox F1 high-speed demonstrations.
Alongside the racing there will also be insight into the restoration of the ex-Les Leston ‘DAD10’ Lotus Elite, that took part in the race that bears his name, an interview with Mini master Nick Swift on his giant-killing antics in his tiny 1275 GT and a tug-of-war between BTCC drivers past and present for bragging rights ahead of the new season.
