The Race - Celebrity Motor Racing Reality TV Show

Hi there,

Just caugh a trailer for a new Celebrity Motor Racing Reality TV Show.

Details here... The Race

Presented by Denise Van Outen and with Team Captains David Coulthard and Eddie Irvine with 2 Teams - 5 Guys and 5 Girls... sounds like it might be worth a watch.

You can get Tickets as they are using Silverstone for it.

Starts Monday 6th November and is on each night at 10pm on Sky One.

Cheers.

Not got Sky or I'd tune in.

Could be interesting. I wonder if Irvine will try to nail DvO?

Anyone catch this tonight (if they remembered)?

Watched it, looked like a bit of fun and could be well worth following as the week goes on. More amazing, I had heard of all the celebs, which makes a change.

Can't help feeling is gonna be rigged to make it close somehow, despite the massive gaps in driving standards.

Just checked the upcoming schedules and there is a program called The Pit Stop on Sky3 today which is a behind-the-scenes preview show:

The Pit Stop
Ian Lee takes a behind-the-scenes look at `The Race', providing viewers with extra insight, exclusive footage and previews of the challenges.

It's on several times today on Sky3.

Well the show was pretty crap, apart from the actual races but for anyone interested in some info on how it was put together and how it wasn't exactly what the contestants were promised, Gary Numan did a "diary" of sorts which makes interesting reading and makes you despair a bit about programme makers...

I watched most of them on Sky3 shortly after they aired on Sky1 and it was decent enough.

From reading some of that link it sounds like it wasn't organised particularly well to make the celebs time as easy as possible.
