According to reports, the race is going to happen as part of the next television series for channel four. Martin is going to drive a Jos Kupyers built Focus, a car that won the French round of the 2012 European Championship.

That car is owned by racer Ollie O’Donovan and prepared by Tony Bardy Motorsport. O’Donovan also won two British Championship events in the car back in 2014.
