Motors TV, the channel dedicated to all this motoring, is to air two of Bespoke Rallies’ recent films on their Sky channel 447 and Virgin Media channel 545.

The first – to be aired on 16 September at 20:30 – will be the story of the 2015 Great Amazon Adventure, a 6,700km drive from Paramaribo in Suriname on the Atlantic to Lima, Peru on the Pacific.
