While air traffic has almost returned to normal following the eruption of the Icelandic volcano and subsequent ash cloud, Sky Sports TV coverage of the second round of the Dulux Trade MSA British Rally Championship has been affected and will be broadcast on Tuesday evening rather than the normal Monday slot.

The BRC programme production company Greenlight TV were covering the FIA GT1 race in Abu Dhabi where they were not only stranded by flight cancellations, but director Rob Hurdman was hospitalised following a high speed crash during the race.

Rob's injuries were thankfully mainly confined to a broken nose, but concern over the lack of flights and personnel meant that Sky Sports agreed to broadcast the programme a day later than usual, allowing the short-staffed Greenlight TV more time to edit the programme.

Coverage of the Pirelli International Rally will go out on Sky Sports 3 (& HD3) at 7pm on Tuesday 27th April, repeated on Wednesday 28th at 12am on the same channels.
