The news on Friday that Sky Sports will broadcast all 17 NTT IndyCar Series races LIVE from the 2019 season in the UK starting with next weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg is wonderful for the NTT IndyCar Series and shows how much momentum the series has however it is a slap in the face for Formula One.
The NTT IndyCar Series will be shown live on Sky Sports dedicated Formula One channel Sky Sports F1HD, however it is no longer a dedicated F1 channel due to the fact that the NTT IndyCar Series is now available.
The Sky deal also could have a much wider impact for the NTT IndyCar Series as they hope to gain some international events soon as Sky Sports is available throughout Europe through Sky Italia and Sky Germany.
The NTT IndyCar Series is going to be extremely exciting this season and being on the same channel as Formula One in the UK it will give the Formula One a run for its money.
Sky Sports first live NTT IndyCar Series race will the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg next weekend.
