Carlton’s voice is familiar to fans of Motorsports and Cycling both on British Television and throughout the world. For over 20 years, be it the Tour de France, Olympic Games, Monte Carlo Rally or Le Mans 24 Hours, his easy-going manner coupled with incisive commentary and a dramatic edge has made him an audience favourite. His style combines a great depth of knowledge with a warm sense of humour and the sharpest of reactions to make an occasion of any sporting event.
Carlton has co-written his first book with Robbie Broughton. MAGIC SPANNER: THE WORLD OF CYCLING ACCORDING TO CARLTON KIRBY was published by Bloomsbury in June 2019.
