Alonso 'Triple Crown' bid to be aired on Sky Sports

Alonso 'Triple Crown' bid to be aired on Sky Sports

Fernando Alonso's attempt to secure the 'Triple Crown' will be shown live on Sky Sports' Formula 1 channel, after the broadcaster secured rights to show the entire 2019 IndyCar season. IndyCar was previously aired by BT Sport in the UK, but will be shown on Sky Sports F1 this year.

McLaren have secured an entry into the Indy 500 this year, where Alonso will hope to match Graham Hill's unique feat of winning at the Brickyard, as well as the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans 24 Hours.

The remainder of the campaign will be shown on Sky, including qualifying and the race for all 17 events.

Steve Smith, Director of Content and Production at Sky Sports, said: "The NTT IndyCar Series is one of the most thrilling competitions in motor racing, crowned by the world renowned 'Indy 500', and it's great to be able to work with our new partners at NBC to bring it to a whole new audience here in the UK and Ireland.

"Alongside our biggest ever season of F1, it will be part of an incredible line-up of motor racing on Sky Sports this year."

Mark Miles, CEO of IndyCar's parent company Hulman & Company added: "We are pleased to reach a deal with Sky Sports to showcase the NTT IndyCar Series on the Sky Sports F1 channel for the next several seasons.

"INDYCAR values the commitment Sky and NBC have made to the series and the support of Comcast-NBCUniversal to help make this deal possible. We look forward to starting our season next week on Sky."
