OCR Commentator?

Just been watching some videos on the multimedia section of BM... some of the videos are clips of the old OCR footage that used to be aired on Sky Sports

Does anyone know the name of the commentator who is on those videos and used to be on sky? the guy is a legend!

he is commentating on old beardy's race where his helmet gets ripped off!

That looked like a great race Ian!!

Peter Butler is the most established international commentator on powerboat and ski racing at events as well as TV, although his focus over the last few years has been in the Middle East and Class 1.
However, he joined us in person last weekend in Plymouth and showed that his knowledge and understanding of the sport combined with an infectious enthusisam still excites the spectators, who stayed there through wind and rain, while listening to Peter.

He is currently working on a long term TV project in Doha before starting the TV and commentary build up to next August's Harwich 2010 Powerboat Racing Festival.

PM me if you want his contact details.
