TV Productions

The core of the Pit Lane Productions Ltd’s business is the production of motorsports related television programming.

For ten years Pit Lane’s “signature” programme was World Motorsports, a 100-minute weekly show airing on prime time Sky Sports. The programme covered International racing, National racing and International rallying. It featured such major series as the DTM, the F3 Euro series, America’s Star Mazda series, the European Rally and Rallycross Championship, as well as Formula 1 news.

Pit Lane has also produced the live studio shows for the Indycar series for Sky Sports including over ten Indy 500s.

In 2008 Pit Lane produced a fly on the wall series based on the exploits of Mike and Andrew Jordan in the British Touring Car Championship.

In 2009 we covered the European Late Model Stock Car Series as well as Autograss and other short oval events.

In 2010 Andrew was instigator and Consulting Producer on the highly acclaimed ITV1 programme "When Playboys Ruled the World".

Productions in 2011 included highlights of the F3 Euroseries, our long running Sky programme Mowlem's Racing Travels and the Motor Sport Hall of Fame. Productions in 2012 included the highlights of the F3 Euroseries, the World Hot Rod Final and the Stockcar World Championships, and in 2013 and 2014 we produced programmes for Sky Sports about start up team RAM Racing. In 2016 we revived the popular Mowlem Racing Travels series for Sky Sports.

Away from motorsports we produced the footage for the Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year Award.
