Sky Sports F1 are to broadcast this year’s Race of Champions event live, it has been confirmed.
The event, which is being held at London’s Olympic Stadium, will be shown on the channel across the weekend of Friday 20th November, covering both the Nations Cup and the actual Race of Champions event itself. The website says that Friday’s coverage will begin at 19:30 with Saturday’s coverage beginning at 15:00.
I assume Motors TV will show the event as well, Sky’s coverage is probably a one-off simply because the event is being held in London, like in 2007 and 2008. 2007’s coverage was predominantly on Sky Sports 2, with 2008 being broadcast live on Sky Sports Xtra.
I’ll update this post in the coming weeks with more coverage details and the confirmed scheduling details.
Thanks to James Rowe for the tip.
