TEN will air six Live events in 2015: Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Clipsal 500 Adelaide, Gold Coast 600, Sydney 500, Townsville 500, Wilson Security Sandown 500.
Every race will be featured in a highlights program on TEN at 4pm on Sundays. One-hour highlights packages will also run on ONE at 8.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and on TEN at 11.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Highlights programs of the other V8 Supercars races will run on ONE and TEN on Saturdays and Sundays.
The new, six-year $241m agreement sees FOX Sports broadcast all practice, qualifying and race sessions Live and in HD. Previously all Championship races were seen on Seven.
TEN Chief Executive Officer, Hamish McLennan, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming V8 Supercars back to their natural home – on TEN and ONE – in 2015.
“TEN will bring viewers and advertisers the six best races – live and free – plus compelling highlights packages of all the other races. We have worked closely with V8 Supercars to ensure free-to-air television viewers receive comprehensive and engaging coverage on both
TEN and ONE.
“Our viewers will get all the live action, thrills, drama and excitement of the Clipsal 500 Adelaide, Townsville 500, Wilson Security Sandown 500, Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, the Gold Coast 600 and the Sydney 500, plus the best of the rest. It will be a compelling offer and we cannot wait to get it on air.
“With the addition of V8 Supercars to our popular coverage of Formula One and MotoGP, Ten is clearly the home of motorsport in Australia.
“The success of the KFC T20 Big Bash League on TEN and the XXII Olympic Winter Games on TEN and ONE have highlighted the value of premium live sport – and we are excited to add to that with the V8 Supercars.”
