ITV4 has struck a deal to show highlights from the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship.
The deal means UK viewers get to see all the best action from each round of WorldSBK on free-to-air TV, allowing them to follow Britain’s riders as they try and repeat their success of 2015.
In addition to race coverage, the broadcaster says it will tailor coverage to focus on the British stars of the paddock, including special interviews.
ITV’s Director of Sport Niall Sloane said: “I’m delighted ITV4 will be able to bring viewers high-octane action from this major motorcycling championship. This new deal adds to the wealth of free-to-air coverage of motorsport we’re able to bring fans throughout the year.”
“It’s fantastic news for us that WorldSBK will be shown on ITV4,” added Manel Arroyo, Managing Director of TV and Media Area, Dorna Sports. “ITV4 is the home of roadracing highlights in the UK.
“With MotoGP shown on the channel since 2015 and now WorldSBK to follow, having an experienced broadcast partner like ITV4 is another great step forward for WorldSBK, and is great news for the many fans who live in the UK.”
