WeatherTech SportsCar Championship fans will get the first glimpse of January’s season opener at Daytona during three hours of live coverage on the FOX network.
IMSA’s April visit to the Long Beach Grand Prix will also be aired live on the flagship FOX channel, and for the rest of the 2018 calendar, a familiar mix of FOX Sports 1 and 2, along with live streaming on FOX Sports Go, will serve as the home for WeatherTech Championship endurance racing.
“IMSA and FOX Sports have developed a robust schedule for the 2018 WeatherTech Championship broadcasts,” said IMSA marketing VP David Pettit. “FOX Sports does an incredible job delivering all the drama, stories and excitement of the IMSA season and we know they will continue to do so in 2018. This partnership keeps our same presence on FOX as we did in 2017, continues to feature a small number of channel changes during our Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup events and utilizes FOX Sports GO throughout the season.
“The combination of FS1 and FS2, with the ability to watch anywhere on FSGO, provides our fans and partners a terrific viewing platform. It’s a package that will capture the essence and drama of race weekends all season long.”
News of the broadcast hosting and pit lane reporting team will be announced at a later date.
