All the action-packed drama of Team Maranello Concessionaires' first season of motorsport competition in Europe will be captured by the TV cameras of Sky Sports throughout 2003. Prime-time broadcasting times are guaranteed and each programme will chart the progress of the modern re-incarnation of this famous Ferrari racing team as they embark on their aim to secure the 2003 FIA N/GT title.
Episode One of 'Ferrari Racing, in Association with Veloqx Motorsport', will feature the team's launch on 19 March at the historic Tower Garage in Egham, Surrey, the original home of Ferrari's UK importer, Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. In addition, this episode will also chart the team's progress in pre-season testing at Estoril, Portugal, over the weekend of 29/30 March.

"The opportunity to follow the team in this unique way will appeal to all Ferrari enthusiasts, as well as followers of motorsport in general," commented John Newman, Commercial Director of TMC. "We intend the series to be a true fly-on-the-wall type documentary, with plenty of behind the scenes, as well as on-track, action."
Episode Two will see the team in action as part of the Veloqx Prodrive joint venture during the 12 Hours of Sebring race. TMC's two 24 hour races -- at Spa with the team's Ferrari 360 GTs, and Le Mans with the 550 Maranello GTS cars, again racing as the Veloqx Prodrive joint venture -- will be subjects of their own dedicated programmes.
Followers of TMC can also chart the team's progress in the FIA GT Championship through Eurosport's broadcast of the 'LG Super Racing Weekend.' Check local TV listings for further details.
