Speed Works Events announce partnership with Sky Sport
Speed Works Events has announced that Sky Sport will broadcast its championship motorsport meetings live over the next three years.
The deal will see qualifying and race sessions for major categories broadcast on Saturday and Sunday, including the TCR New Zealand Series.
"This is fantastic news for the sport and for fans, drivers and teams alike," explained Speed Works’ Geoff Short. "Sky is committed to international, regional and domestic motorsport news and coverage and having the top domestic championships broadcast live in their entirety is great news and should be welcomed by everyone. There's a bit more news to come with other initiatives, but it's great to be able to confirm the live package and a major step forward for the sport in New Zealand."
Speed Works’ calendar for the 2019-2020 season begins in November at Pukekohe before moving to Highlands in January for its second event - the first weekend for the Castrol Toyota Racing Series season and also the first NZ event for the TCR class.
January also includes the third event in the calendar at Teretonga, before the series moves to the North Island for the Denny Hulme Trophy meeting at Hampton Downs, the Motor Cup meeting at Pukekohe and the final round of the TRS series, the New Zealand Grand Prix, at Manfeild Circuit Chris Amon. The final weekend of the summer championship series takes place at Hampton Downs in March.
