V8 Supercars announce US TV deal

V8 Supercars Australia announces deal to see the series air on SPEED TV
V8 Supercars Australia has announced a new partnership for the next three seasons which will see the series air on SPEED TV in the United States.

TV coverage of V8 events will air the weekend after each event, and sees the V8 Supercars added to a line-up that already includes coverage of F1, MotoGP, NASCAR, the ALMS and the Rolex Grand Am Series.

“V8 Supercars is one of the most exciting forms of auto racing in the world today,” said FOX Sports Chairman David Hill. “It is fabulous to watch and I'm happy that we've been able to develop this new partnership with SPEED.”

V8 Supercars Australia Executive Chairman Tony Cochrane said the deal was a huge milestone in the ongoing and success of V8 Supercars.

"This is a fantastic and exciting relationship for V8 Supercars,” he said. “There is no question that SPEED in North America is the foremost network with regards to motorsport coverage and is the pinnacle platform in our sport - to be held in such regard by this highly professional organisation is a great testament to the quality of our television coverage and our racing.

"Each year we build our international presence and our TV reach next season will go to in excess of 135 customer countries in varied forms of live, delayed and packaged highlights.

"We are delighted to announce that the coverage will commence with next week's Sydney Telstra 500 being shown on SPEED over the weekend of December 12 and 13 in North America as a taste of what North American fans can view all of next season.

"I would like to thank David Hill personally and the entire FOX Sports and SPEED teams for showing their great faith in V8 Supercars. This is the first of many new international TV announcements that will be rolled out between now and our opening event at the YAS Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi next year.”
