Sky Sport will not be broadcasting this year’s New Zealand Grand Prix.
Last year, the subscription-based service televised all the country’s premier motorsport series’ through a deal with Speedworks Events.
That deal, which was believed to be for three years, included live coverage of every Toyota Racing Series round, as well as the support classes for the meeting.
Both days of action at each weekend were televised on Sky Sport’s dedicated motorsport channel: Sky Sport 5.
However, Sky has confirmed that that they will not be covering this year’s event.
What it means is that, to date, there is currently no set broadcaster of the Grand Prix.
Spark Sport has been mooted as a possible alternative, as has a return to live streaming via YouTube.
Spark has been responsible for the streaming of all FIA Formula 1, 2 and 3 events, as well as the World Rally Championship.
YouTube and the Speedworks Events website has previously streamed coverage and commentary of the Grand Prix with success.
The grid for this year’s Grand Prix is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in recent seasons.
An all-Kiwi line-up will feature several past Grand Prix winners, namely Ken Smith, Greg Murphy and Daniel Gaunt.
They will be up against a crop of some promising young talent, as well as a handful of big-name drivers who have returned to their single-seater roots.
The Grand Prix will be staged on January 24 at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, the first time the Waikato venue will host the prestigious race.
