Eurosport has confirmed it has extended its deal to provide live coverage of the Le Mans 24 Hours for another three years.

The deal will see the broadcaster provide coverage of the race until 2016 under the new agreement, which also covers the remainder of the World Endurance Championship.

Eurosport will continue to cover Le Mans live in its entirety while it will broadcast the last hour of each round of the WEC live in high definition.

"Le Mans 24 Hours is the most famous car racing event in history and one of the highlights of our programming,” Jean-Thierry Augustin, CEO, Eurosport Group said. “Viewers will not miss a minute of the race wherever they are, with our round-the-clock LIVE coverage on air, online and on mobile. They will also enjoy unique editorial extras brought each year by our teams on site.

“The extension of our long-standing relationship with ACO also enables us to guarantee fans the very best of endurance racing throughout the whole season with the eight rounds of the FIA WEC."

Right then Eurosport, get your commentators sorted, get your scheduling sorted, get a decent director sorted. Its not like is a short notice thing you have year to prepare. This years programming and directing has been so poor as to be unbelievable, are the commentators watching the same qualifying as me, are they watching qualifying at all or they just too busy reminiscing about the good old days. As for the directing of the program, We have spent a long time listening to the commentators prattling on for an age under the many red flags with no ad breaks, as soon as the qualifying continues we get an ad break. Get it sorted !

I watched the Eurosport coverage and thought it was awful. I love in car footage and heavens those Audis and Toyotas could fly but, hour after hour it was all the same.Just the view from the quickest cars on the track. Oh look there's an Aston Porsche and Ferrari nose to tail having a great scrap , but,whoosh gone, never to be seen again. The choice of camera seemed completely random at times. Very disappointed. And how annoying is it for the GT drivers to be flashed a dozen times everytime they are overtaken. Beef over RIP Simonsen
