Legends Cars Championship announces full-season TV package

Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres is set to mark a milestone year with unrivalled television coverage, with one-hour shows confirmed for all 14 events.

Produced by Digitex Television and with Richard John Neil on commentary once again, all 42 races will be filmed – providing the definitive story as the season unfolds and thus ensuring that the championship offers the widest ever exposure for teams, drivers and commercial partners.

A key sponsorship partnership with 24hr Solutions will mean that the series will be broadcast in the UK, Europe and America through a variety of platforms including Amazon Prime UK, Amazon Prime USA, Front Runner and BARC TV.

Phil Cooper, Legends Cars owner, said: “We are absolutely elated to have been able to put together such a fantastic package of television and online coverage for the Legends Cars this year, by far the most extensive offering we’ve ever been able to provide, thanks to the partnership with Phil Turner and 24hr Solutions. We’re extremely grateful to 24hr Solutions for their outstanding support.

“Of course, we’re all very much looking forward to working with Barry Welch and his team at Digitex who have done a terrific job for us in recent seasons and, it goes without saying, we’re delighted Richard John Neil will be taking care of commentary duties – what he doesn’t know about Legends isn’t worth knowing!”

Speaking on the Legends Cars TV deal, 24hr Solutions’ Phil Turner said: “As a business owner you always aspire to provide the best service, the best branding, to be the best at all endeavours, so when the opportunity to sponsor such a great TV motor racing deal with Legends presented itself, it was one to snatch quickly! 

“Working with Phil Cooper is always a pleasure, we entered Team 247 last year in support of Help for Heroes, with great support from Phil, and this new sponsorship deal just highlights the family atmosphere of the pitlane in the Legends Cars National Championship.”

An Easter extravaganza on April 21/22 at Brands Hatch will mark the start of the 2019 Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres season.
