Nick carries out the roles of Producer and Presenter for RC Racing TV – a role he mixes with his full size Motorsport Media commitments.
Nick cut his teeth in the cut and thrust of Formula 1 spending 7 years in the pitlane as an interviewer, including the post race press conferences – some viewers may remember this clip and recognise the dulcet tones of the interviewer!
Since then he has covered British Touring Cars, Truck Racing and most recently has become an integral part of Radio Le Mans, travelling the world reporting and commentating on endurance sports cars.
Nick was a successful (well moderately!) RC Racer in the 1980’s and after a few years away rekindled his love of scale motorsport in the early 2000’s which led to the production of RC Racing TV!
Nick still races in 1/12th but as he gets older is finding the concept of Large Scale more and more tempting – could be the eyesight!!
John affectionately known as “the Voice of Le Mans” is also the voice of RC Racing TV’s races! Stunningly versatile John has commentated on just about everything on wheels and some on legs (he was a regular on Crufts Radio!).
Podcast fans download John’s Midweek Motorsport show in their droves and regular listeners will also hear Nick and a few other familiar voices mixing witty banter and up to the minute motorsport news and discussion.
If you’re a motorsport fan, but you’re sure you’ve heard John’s distinctive voice somewhere else it could possibly be EA Games’ Need For Speed Pro Street! The smash hit video game which called on John’s talents to add an extra level of excitement and realism.
There’s no doubt his dulcet tones can liven even the dullest races, but as he says “there is nothing better than an ultra close RC battle”. John has the ability to both bring in the casual viewer and satisfy the thirst for knowledge of the aficionado all whilst inserting the humour and excitement he has become world renowned for! In fact, this clip of the 2008 ISTC World Championships went (semi) viral! It had even had the full scale motoring magazine Jalopnik asking, is this the greatest race commentary of all time?!
Mat is the Creative (hairy) Beast behind RC Racing TV. For five years he has put the show together on a shoestring with bits of duct tape and broken biscuits.
At 6’4″ you may well have seen him at one of the countless RC events he’s covered – having a row with Nick in the pits.
As well as filming and editing, on rare occasions (when no one else is available) he’s even presented.. and as this clip shows, covering opening ceremonies is his favourite job by far.
However when he’s not doing that he’s producing HPI Racing’s videos, like this recent offering – The WR8. It’s a little known fact that Mat came second in auditions to star in a potato chip advert. So with his hopes and dreams dashed, he gets what joy he can filming grown men running about in their bare feet!
Oli joined the RC Racing TV team in season 4 after Nick spotted him bleating commentary at some RC event in the south of England.
In a very short time he has demonstrated his encyclopedic knowledge of RC motorsport with a raft of in depth articles and video pieces produced at EFRA European Championships in 2010 and 2011.
Despite the fantastic insight and humour Oli brings to RC Racing TV’s coverage, organisers may not be overjoyed to hear he will be attending plenty of events in 2012, for it is well known that he does tend to bring miserable British weather with him when he turns up, as this clip shows!
After a hard day at the track Oli can often be found building 1/10th TC track layouts with knives and forks in the hotel bar, planning his own beloved RC races somewhere in the south of England.
Paul’s special talents include having intimate knowledge of how to film every sport known to man, from cricket to welly wanging to cheese rolling. You name it, he has a plan and usually experience of filming it!
He’s been part of the team since the beginning and joined Nick on RC Racing TV’s inaugural production back in 2006 at the IFMAR 1/10th Electric Touring Car ISTC Worlds in Italy.
Nathan is the latest edition to the RC Racing TV team, he operates cameras and edits clips for some of our EFRA European Championships coverage.
As well as having a creative eye for getting those nice shots in the pits, Nathan is also a black belt in judo! So quite possibly the fittest member of the team too!
Sian joins the team regularly for our coverage of the Neo Buggy event in the UK. She is a model and presenter who has featured in such glossy publications as FHM.
We even persuaded her to try a little acting on out latest Neo visit, in the half baked sketch idea that started this Show!
Do have some skills to offer RC Racing TV?
