JOHNNY MOWLEM'S WORLD TRAVELS PREMIERES APRIL 4
LONDON, England (March 21, 2006) -- British motor racing star Johnny Mowlem gives fans a rare glimpse into the complicated world of professional sports car racing in his three-part television series, Johnny Mowlem's World Travels, starting April 4. The series airs on the Sky Sports network.
The series follows Mowlem through his racing and non-racing activities at various racing venues. Viewers can observe the preparation and distractions that all drivers go through at each event. And as the serious side of the business becomes clear, so do Mowlem's wit and sense of fun.
"I enjoy the racing business and I want people to know why," Mowlem said. "But it is a business and I believe fans can come to understand that better through this series. We had a very strong response from last year's programs and we've built on that this time around."
The hour-long episodes debut Tuesday April 4 at 8 p.m. on Sky Sports 2 Digital, Tuesday, April 11 at 8 p.m. on Sky Sports 2 Digital and April 18 at 7 p.m. on Sky Sports Extra. Each show will repeat three times across the various Sky Sports properties.
One of Britain's most successful and personable sports car drivers, Mowlem started his career behind the wheel at age 19. He was named the 2005 Reading Sports Personality of the Year, an honor reserved for the top sports performers in his region. A married father of two, Mowlem was raised in Majorca, Spain. He has earned university degrees in economics and Spanish. More information on Mowlem is available at www.johnnymowlem.com.
