IndyCar has renewed its deal with Sky Sport to broadcast every practice, qualifying and race of the 2021 championship live to New Zealand viewers.
Sky has been the traditional home of IndyCar for Kiwi fans and will once again be the platform of choice for staying tuned in with Scott Dixon and Scott McLaughlin.
This season sees Dixon hunt down a record-equalling seventh career championship crown. Meanwhile, McLaughlin starts his long-awaited rookie campaign.
Australian fans will also see a boost in television coverage. Fox Sports Australia and Kayo will now broadcast every session live.
“The new commitment is massive,” McLaughlin said. “I have a lot of support back home and not only for myself but for Will Power and Scott Dixon. For our friends and fans to see every session is fantastic. It’s going to be awesome.”
Both Dixon and McLaughlin return to pre-season testing later this week for a two-day open test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Nearly a full field of Indy 500 competitors will participate in the test, given it will be the first real opportunity to experiment set-ups for May’s race.
New Zealand fans can catch both days of the test live through the official IndyCar app.
The next crop of Kiwi IndyCar stars will also have every race of their season streamed live and free.
USF2000 rookies Billy Frazer and Peter Vodanovich, and Indy Pro 2000 sophomore Hunter McElrea can be seen live in action on both the Road to Indy YouTube channel, official app and website.
The first race of the year for IndyCar, Indy Pro 2000 and USF2000 will be the Honda Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsport Park on April 16-18.
