London Live, the capital’s TV channel, has acquired the rights to broadcast this year’s Red Bull Air Race World Championships live from Ascot Racecourse.
Taking place on August 16th, London Live will broadcast two live shows of Red Bull Air Race World Championships the final rounds airing at 2pm and the Final and Winner’s Ceremony at 4pm. As well as the race itself, the live programmes will feature interviews with contestants and organisers from the sport, and capture the atmosphere throughout the day.
Lucy Myers, Programme Director for London Live said “We know our viewers loved the exclusive behind the scenes access we’ve given them to live events this year, and we’re thrilled to bring the fastest motor sport series in the world to the capital’s audiences. The Red Bull team are renowned for making top quality and highly entertaining content and we know that events such as the Soap Box series and Vans RebelJam will be a perfect complement to our successful comedy and film strands.”
