The early broadcast schedules for the Dunlop/ MSA British Historic Rally Championship show prime-time slots for the coverage on Motors TV. Importantly, coverage of the opening two rallies will broadcast within three weeks of the event.

All eight rounds of the BHRC will be televised in 2010, with dedicated hour-long programmes on Motors TV following each round supported by 'My Life Story'. Acceleration Television and Video, the company headed by David Winstanley, will exclusively film all eight rallies and produce television programmes as well as DVDs, which will be available through

Coverage of the opening round on Motors TV, the Bulldog Historic Rally on 27 March, will first be broadcast at 9.15pm on Saturday 17 April. The BHRC report will be the programme immediately ahead of coverage of the WRC Rally of Turkey.
