An opportunity to expose your business, get new customers and preserve some rich motorsport history. There will be a news clip on HRC classes as part of the program.

Legends of Motorsport
(TV show)
Legends of Motorsport is a half hour long TV show, to screen 5 times per week on Sky TV and to be available “on demand” from two different websites.
The show is to be produced in conjunction between Ian Rawkins and the Historic Racing Club (HRC) and as such will be promoted by HRC via their Facebook and direct Email channels. The content of the show will be very much focused on the Historic side of Motor Racing. The main feature of the show is a candid interview with a Legend of Pitlane.
The types of person on our list are the likes of David Oxton, Lyall Williamson, Garry Pedersen, Graeme Crosby, Mike Marshall to name but a few. The show will also feature Cars that are “Legends of Pitlane” in their own right, plus local Historic news, promotion of upcoming events, short highlights from HRC events and much more.
The show is to be 30 mins in duration shot in a studio with a host. The show will screen on Channel 83 on Sky TV starting with a primetime first screening (7.30pm Tuesdays) then a further 4 screenings at various times during the week including one weekend timeslot.
The show will be available on demand shortly after first screening on both the Channel 83 “On Demand” site and the HRC website.
Extended length versions of the feature interview will be packaged and uploaded to the HRC website 8 days after the first screening.
The arrangement the producers have with Channel 83 is that all advertising and branding in the show is owned by the producers. All Commercials and adverts will be edited into the show and will remain in the show for any on demand viewing.
Advertisers will own their segment and their commercials will play whether the show is viewed on TV or on a digital platform.

The show is to be produced by Ian Rawkins. Ian has a long experience in the TV industry as well as many years involved with Motorsport competing crewing etc. plus producing for TV motorsport shows like “Castrol Motorsport” for TV1, many highlight shows for TV3 and TV 1 and three seasons of “Karcher Pitlane” a panel motorsport chat show screening on Sky Sport. Karcher Pitlane was one of the highest rated panel shows on Skysport and the show had guests of the calibre of Sir Jackie Stewart, Michele Mouton, Scott Dixon, Brendon Hartley to name just a few.
Assisting in with the production will be a crew from HRC who will help with sourcing guests and material for the show and act as advisors on content etc.

We are looking for advertisers who have an interest in the Historic/Classic/Grass roots motor racing scene. Advertisers who are looking for a very cost effective way to reach directly the well-heeled viewers of the show. These viewers are qualified buyers; they have a strong interest in Historic/Classic/Grass roots motorsport and have the income to support their interest and the sponsors who support the same interests.
Advertising and branding opportunities within the show are available at very affordable rates - starting as low as $50 per TV commercial spot, right up to Naming Rights for the show and the extended length interviews plus multiple TV commercial spots.
Branding on set is available plus opportunities for direct competitions/promotions within the show.
The expected audience for this show on Face TV is over 10,000 viewers plus through HRC we can offer the following Digital reach from their Facebook page alone.

  • 14,500 post reach
  • 290 New page likes per month.
  • Additional digital outreach can be via direct Email.

Initially we are planning a short run of five shows. The idea of this is to gauge interest and obtain feedback from viewers, advertisers etc. to plan for a longer run of 12 to 14 weeks later this year.
Any advertisers, supporters of the first 5 episodes will have first right on the longer series.
