The television coverage of the 2013 Roger Albert Clark Rally (8-10 November) will be screened on Motors TV on Friday (28 February) starting at 6.55pm.RAC Winstanley

The two-hour programme will cover the full story of this remarkable three-day adventure, which was won by Steve Bannister and Kevin Rae after over 160 stage miles in Yorkshire, Kielder and the Scottish borders.

It is hugely poignant that the programme, which was filmed and edited by the late David Winstanley, will be screened on the day that the very popular rally film maker is being laid to rest following his death on 18 February.

Not only did David film and edit the story of the tenth Roger Albert Clark Rally, he was also a competitor as he returned to driving in a BMW from the Rally Prep stable after a gap of four years. Although David retired in Pundershaw, he was elated at the chance to get back behind the wheel of a rally car.

“This will be a bitter-sweet programme in many ways,” said rally manager Colin Heppenstall. “David was such an integral part of the whole story of the Roger Albert Clark Rally and he will be greatly missed by all of us who love this rally. However, having the programme broadcast on the day of his funeral seems an appropriate tribute and I’m sure David would have approved of this with his usual sense of humour.”

New plans for filming of the 2014 West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship are now well advanced. The coverage of the 2014 Red Kite Stages has been postponed from its original broadcast date (also scheduled for Friday 28 February), and a revised schedule will be published shortly.
