CBS Sports, MotorsTV To Feature American Le Mans at Mid-Ohio
Braselton, GA - CBS Sports airs its first of three telecasts this year of the American Le Mans Series sports car racing series this Sunday with two hours of action from Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
Three of the four class-winning teams from the recent 24 Hours of Le Mans will be in competition in the timed event on the 2.25-mile, 13-turn permanent road racing facility located between Cleveland and Columbus. The American Le Mans Series is a series of professional North American sports car races based on the French endurance racing classic and many of the same drivers and cars that raced at Le Mans will also compete at Mid-Ohio.
Ralph Sheheen will anchor CBS' Mid-Ohio coverage, joined in the booth by former sports car racer Bill Adam for analysis. Calvin Fish and Brian will cover the action from the pits and Tracy Wolfson will be a feature reporter.
Andy Goldberg of CBS Sports will be Coordinating Producer for the telecast, which will be produced by Wheeler TV of Charlotte, N.C. Jim Roller will be Producer and the telecast will be directed by Billy McCoy.
The telecast begins at 2 p.m. (EDT).
In addition to live coverage in North America on CBS, the race will also be televised live in Europe by MotorsTV beginning at 18:00 (UK time). MotorsTV, one of Europe's fastest-growing television channels, is distributed throughout Europe by both satellite and digital cable, in both English and French, and is dedicated to the world of Motorsports. MotorsTV will feature live coverage of all nine rounds of the American Le Mans Series in 2004, marking the first time in series history that the full season of racing will be televised live in Europe.
