The second double header of the 2015 Global RallyCross season took place in Detroit on Belle Isle in the middle of the Detroit River last weekend. What a stunning venue…
Henry Ford III saw his cars speed to a double victory with Ken Block and Patrick Sandell winning.
We broadcast two programmes of and hour and an hour and a half over the two days on NBC.
INTERVIEWING DEREK BELL Jul 20
5 times Le Mans winner Derek Bell returned to Shelsley Walsh hill climb for the enormously successful July weekend where I interviewed him in front of a capacity crowd just before he drove at 1983 Rothmans Porsche 956 up the hill.
How utterly, totally, Le Mans, La Sartre, Mulsanne Straight fever.
GRC AT NEW RIVER MARINE BASE Jul 6
As the Global RallyCross series marches on into the meat of 2015, we went to New River Marine Base in North Carolina where we had the first motorsport event on an active runway, surrounded by over $10 billion worth of the latest helicopters including Ospreys, Super Stallions, Hueys and Super Cobras.
Townsend Bell and I had a great broadcast on NBC during the Independence Day weekend. Ken Block won so it was a Stars ‘n Stripes weekend.
GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED Jun 30
Goodwood is awash with heroes, stars and mega machinery, but this year it was on yet again another level with the very best of motorsport royalty in Sussex.

I was commentating and hosting coverage for the big screen TVs at Goodwood and for the international streamed coverage through the internet.
LE MANS 24hrs HOSTING ONCE MORE Jun 15
Le Mans 2015 was once more a great race in the history of the event. Porsche v Toyota v Audi with Nissan in the wings. Audi had their huge VIP Arena where there were live shows every two hours throughout the race hosted by myself. These shows were for the guests in the Arena and then broadcast to the other Audi venues around the circuit, and to Audi AG in Ingolstadt, Neckersulm and to the all new ‘Audi City’ venues in London, Berlin and Beijing.
Joining me on stage would be former winners such as Pirro, Werner, Beila, Capello and McNish to discuss the technology, the race and how it was shaking out over the Circuit de la Sarthe.

Another fabulous week working at the X Games in Texas for ESPN and ABC networks where I was commentating on the opening sport on Thursday night, the all new Flat Track, the RallyCross on Saturday then the Stadium Super Trucks on Sunday.
You HAVE to see it in person to appreciate just how utterly amazing the whole event is. Stunning.

VALENTINO ROSSI AT GOODWOOD Apr 13
Fantastic news from Goodwood Festival of Speed guys that Valentino Rossi is going to appear for the very first time up the now famous hill. He’ll jet in straight from Assen the day before to be ready for some runs up the hill on Sunday aboard his YZR M1 Yamaha.
I’m lucky enough to be commentating on all three days at Goodwood once more so it’ll be great to see him again trackside.
Rossi joins a superb line-up of motorcycle racers past and present that also includes grand prix world champions John Surtees, Jim Redman, Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer and Casey Stoner, trials legend Sammy Miller and current Superbike race winner Leon Haslam.

The classic car scene in the UAE is growing as proven once more by the Emirates Classic Car Festival in Dubai in March where over 350 cars, motor cycles and trucks were shown on the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in the shadow of the Burj Kalifha, the world’s tallest building.
I was the Master of Ceremonies, and for the second year treated to seeing some mouth watering cars.
CORPORATE HOSTING Mar 7
Fronting corporate launches, shows and events is something I have been doing for over a decade now. This was a worldwide motor cycle launch for Yamaha that necessitated the timing to be perfect right before the Patrulla Aguilla (The Spanish Red Arrows) arrived on the scene. What a shot! A brilliant event with enormous planning and a stunning result.
What can I do for your event with my experience of hosting these events the world over? Get in touch.
