RPM TV Schedule 25 May 2016: Alfa Romeo 4C Spider at Jaguar Simola Hillclimb, Mahindra XUV500
The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb has become something of a RPM TV tradition – we’ve raced a variety of fast machines up the tricky, twist Simola Hill over the past six years.
After a successful outing in the coupé version of the Alfa Romeo 4C in 2015, we opted for the new, soft-top 4C Spider for the 2016 edition of the event. But that’s not all: we also drove seven lesser known mountain passes on the way there and back, clocking up 3 000 grin-inducing kilometres in the process.
Back at home base, we got behind the wheel of the recently updated Mahindra XUV500 – an all-terrainer that promises a mix of rugged capability, a comfortable cabin, and strong value for money. And on the news front, Continental launches an advanced high-performance tyre, the SportContact 6, in South Africa.
RPM remains in its normal time slot at 20h30 on SuperSport 8 on Wednesday 25 May. As last-minute changes to the broadcast schedule are frequent, please check the latest transmission schedule under ‘Motorsport’ on the SuperSport website’s ‘TV’ section, or the DStv Electronic Programme Guide.
