Channel 4 will broadcast highlights of the FIA World Endurance Championship with immediate effect, this site can confirm.
The 30-minute programme will be broadcast in an early morning slot on Saturday mornings. Lee McKenzie and John Hindhaugh will present the show, with Mark Webber also contributing. The first episode from Silverstone airs on Saturday 11th June at 06:35.
The announcement is great news for the championship, to be exposed to a bigger audience. I believe this is the first time ever that the World Endurance Championship has been broadcast (in any form) on any of the ‘big five’ terrestrial television stations. It helps complement the existing agreements with Eurosport and Motors TV very nicely.
