Geo TV broadcasting Pakistan's A1GP campaign
Fans of A1 Team Pakistan are now able to see their country in action in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport, following an agreement with Geo TV Network which was established in 2002, and is the fastest growing channel network in Pakistan. The broadcast channel Geo Super, a subsidiary of Geo Channel Network, will show live A1GP coverage and highlights of the remaining race weekends this season and fans will be able to watch Adam Khan, driver for the home team, racing for the pride of Pakistan at international race venues around the globe.
Geo Super is the first Pakistani sports channel, which was launched in Oct 2006 and has played a major role in development of sports in Pakistan. During this one and a half years of its existence Geo Super has brought the biggest happening of the Sports world exclusively to the viewers in Pakistan. On the domestic front the channel has played a very important role in developing non-conventional sports at grass root level by telecasting live events of tennis, cricket, football, volleyball, marathon, squash, and snooker.
Broadcasting local sporting action and the biggest international events, Geo Super is dedicated to promoting sports in Pakistan - an ethos that fits perfectly with A1 Team Pakistan.
A1 Team Seat holder Arif Husain commented, "It's fantastic news that Geo Super is now covering the A1GP races. The media is an essential tool in spreading awareness and promoting the team, and we are immensely grateful for all the support they have given us so far. This new partnership with Geo Super will mean fans all across Pakistan now have the opportunity to watch their national racing team in action, as it happens.
"I know we will see some exciting racing throughout the remainder of the season, and hope the fans back home will be cheering on A1 Team Pakistan."
Mohammad Ali, Business unit head of Geo Super, added "We're delighted to be able to bring A1 Team Pakistan and A1GP to homes all over the country. A1GP offers thrilling and exciting racing and we are very proud that Geo Super is the channel that will broadcast live coverage and highlights of the action to Pakistani fans. Moreover, to educate viewers about this sport, we will also be airing an informative and educative programme in local language by the name of Head Cam."
Fans will get their next chance to see the team in action on Geo Super at the seventh round of the 2007/08 season, which will take place in Durban, South Africa from 22-24 February. The qualifying sessions which will set the grid for the two races will be broadcast live on Saturday 23 February, 5pm (PST) and the two A1GP races will be on Sunday 24 February, 5pm (PST).
