WSBK race highlights on ITV4

World Superbike race highlights to be broadcast free-to-air in the UK.
2016 World Superbike race highlights are to be broadcast free-to-air in the UK on ITV4.

The highlights package will be shown 'in the week after each round', with ITV4 further tailoring the coverage to focus on the British stars of the paddock, including special interviews.

The first one-hour show, covering Sunday's opening round at Phillip Island, will be broadcast at 8pm tonight (Wednesday).

ITV's Director of Sport Niall Sloane said: “I'm delighted ITV4 will be able to bring viewers high-octane action from this major motorcycling championship. This new deal adds to the wealth of free-to-air coverage of motorsport we're able to bring fans throughout the year.”

“It's fantastic news for us that WSBK will be shown on ITV4,” added Manel Arroyo, Managing Director of TV and Media Area, Dorna Sports. “ITV4 is the home of roadracing highlights in the UK. With MotoGP [highlights] shown on the channel since 2015 and now WSBK to follow, having an experienced broadcast partner like ITV4 is another great step forward for WSBK, and is great news for the many fans who live in the UK.”

The opening round at Phillip Island saw British rider Jonathan Rea kick-off his title defence in perfect fashion with a thrilling double victory.
