Autosport Plus 18th April 2020
Autosport magazine has been the leading weekly motorsport publication for over 50 years.
Peter: "As a child, I yearned for Autosport day to arrive. My Mother patiently took me to the local newsagent every Thursday to acquire the latest copy. A genius move on her part to keep me quiet as I read of the exploits of my heroes. One of which, was Colin McRae. Therefore, for a piece I wrote about him to be published in Autosport, is humbling."
This nostalgic piece recalls Colin McRae's heroic return to the World Rally Championship in 2005. In a Skoda? Honest.

Commentating on sim racing is a vital part of what I do and requires all the same skills as real world racing does."

12 Hours of Snetterton Charity Marathon
Peter: "In conjunction with Porsche Club Great Britain, a group of keen racers gathered to drive for 12 hours consecutively on iRacing.com. My role for the marathon was to provide commentary, production and broadcast for all 12 hours. £3000 was raised for the NHS and good fun was had by all. For me personally, the event was an excellent test of my endurance racing commentary skills."
The entire race was broadcast on the PeterMacKayMotorsport Twitch channel and on The Peter MacKay Motorsport Podcast livecast.

Laps of the legends - Hislop v Fogarty 1992
Peter: "Steve Hislop was one of Scotland's greatest sportsmen. A British champion on short circuits and an unparalleled winning ratio at the Isle of Man TT. Steve won over a third of the TT races he entered. To recount the tale of Steve's epic victory over Carl Fogarty in the 1992 Senior TT for a prestigious publication like Autosport is an honour."
