Sky F1 channel to host live IndyCar coverage


Sky Sports F1 channel will branch out to show coverage of the 2019 NTT IndyCar series, starting 10th March.

The channel will show every round of this year's series, including the world-famous Indianapolis 500 following the signing of a new partnership deal with INDYCAR.

The agreement means that every qualifying session and every race from all 17 rounds, starting with the 2019 curtain-raiser in St Petersburg, Florida on 10th March, will be live on Sky Sports F1. The pinnacle of the Series, the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500, takes place on 26 May.

Featuring a mix of superspeedways, short ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits, the NTT IndyCar Series is one of toughest challenges in motorsport.

Steve Smith, Director of Content and Production at Sky Sports, said:
 The NTT IndyCar Series is one of the most thrilling competitions in motor racing, crowned by the world renowned ‘Indy 500’, and it’s great to be able to work with our new partners at NBC to bring it to a whole new audience here in the UK and Ireland. Alongside our biggest ever season of F1, it will be part of an incredible line-up of motor racing on Sky Sports this year
