World Rallycross secures live free-to-air coverage on Quest

The FIA World Rallycross championship will be broadcast live on free-to-air channel Quest in the UK and Ireland
The FIA World Rallycross championship will be broadcast live on free-to-air channel Quest in the UK and Ireland for 2016.

Quest, which is operated by Discovery Network Western Europe, has secured a deal to show all 12 championship rounds live during the climax of each event on Sunday afternoons. In addition, a highlights programme will be broadcast on ITV4 and on Eurosport every following Tuesday evening.

It is the first time the World Rallycross championship will be shown live on free-to-air television in its relatively short history and representatives from both Quest and ITV are delighted to secure the deal.

“It is incredibly exciting to bring live coverage of the entire World RX season to Quest in 2016,” Simon Downing, senior vice president head of Quest, said. “The championship has proved increasingly popular with our viewers. Adding comprehensive coverage of all the action this year ignites our sports offering yet further.”

“Bringing the best of the FIA World Rallycross Championship action to our viewers free-to-air in a lively highlights show is another exciting addition to our portfolio of motorsports on ITV4,” Niall Sloane, ITV's Head of Sport, added.

The first round of the 2016 FIA World Rallycross championship, World RX of Portugal at Pista Automovel de Montalegre, gets underway on the 16-17 April.
