Front Runner TV, the free-to-air sports channel launched in the UK in 2016, will screen live action from the opening round of the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook.
With commentary provided by the Radiolemans.com team, coverage of the 24H DUBAI will commence on Friday January 13 at 09:30 with a pre-race show which will include coverage of the opening laps. Five hours of further coverage starts at midday with the final hours of the race and the podium ceremony covered from 2.00am on Saturday January 14.
“We’re delighted to be introducing live motor racing with the first round of the 24H SERIES and screening all the action as it happens in Dubai,” said Front Runner TV’s Ryan Scarrat. “If the live broadcast on Friday and Saturday is successful, we will explore the possibility of screening further live races as the motor racing season continues around the world.”
Natasha Mark from Creventic, the Dutch agency which is the promoter and organiser of the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook is equally excited by the opportunity.
“The Hankook 24H DUBAI is our undisputed flagship event with an international field of teams and drivers but also an international audience of endurance racing fans that is getting bigger and bigger each year,” said Ms Mark. “The media presence on Front Runner, the UJK’s only free sports channel, only helps to increase the popularity of the event, with plenty of teams and drivers from the UK.”
Launched in October 2016, Front Runner is available on Freeview ch91, FreeSat ch250, TalkTalk/BT ch 91 and Sky ch468.
