There have been many attempts to bring motor sport to new markets, some more successful than others and this weekend sees the latest in the line. The City Challenge is kicking off in the centre of Baku, taking racing to the people of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Peter “Pedro” May is on duty for DSC and DDC, here is a first glimpse at the proceedings. Featuring drivers such as Sniff Petrol favourite, Jacques Villeneuve, in the feature race plus a drifting display and historic F1, the event will hopefully be the first of many such happenings.
