The 2019 NTT IndyCar Series will be shown on Sky Sports with every qualifying and race broadcast live as the American championship secures a new TV deal.

Previously IndyCar had been shown either live or on repeat on BT Sport but for 2019 the US series will be broadcast on Sky Sports’ F1 channel starting next weekend with the season-opener at St Petersburg.

Every round will be live including the iconic Indianapolis 500 which will feature two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso as he targets the Triple Crown.

Sky Sports has secured an exclusive broadcast deal for the UK and Ireland and will show every qualifying and race live to dovetail it with its Formula 1 coverage.

“We are pleased to reach a deal with Sky Sports to showcase the NTT IndyCar Series on the Sky Sports F1 channel for the next several seasons,” Mark Miles, CEO of IndyCar parent company Hulman & Company, said.

“IndyCar values the commitment Sky and NBC have made to the series and the support of Comcast-NBCUniversal to help make this deal possible. We look forward to starting our season next week on Sky.”
