Supercars fans will be able to enjoy the upcoming All Star Eseries live on Sky Sports.
The series today confirmed a global broadcasting deal that will see the virtual championship televised live both in Australia and New Zealand, with a live stream on all Supercars social media platforms for the rest of the world.
The series begins on April 8 with races from Phillip Island and Monza, kicking off at 9.30 pm NZT.
“This series is about giving fans an opportunity to cheer for their favourite drivers from anywhere in the world,” said Nathan Prendergast, Supercars General Manager for Television and Content.
“Drivers have really embraced the opportunity to continue racing via this All Star Series and we expect tough and exciting competition across the board.
“To bring fans more insights, we will have drivers chatting mid-race and interacting with the broadcast, like the Supercars Championship.
“We’ll be using webcams throughout the series, so fans watching at home can see their drivers mid-race.
“Our broadcast partners have embraced this competition and we’re thrilled they will be showcasing it live across their channels.”
All 24 full-time drivers will be competing in the series; and while many keen to show off their sim racing talent, a handful of others admit they are only there for some enjoyment.
“I’m going to be hopeless at it, like I’m just going to put it out that there is no chance of me winning,” Penrite Racing’s David Reynolds told Fox Sports.
“But I am going to have a good laugh doing it because, you know, you can crash into people.
“It doesn’t cost any money and no one gets upset. Press reset and go again.”
