Motors TV has enhanced its reputation as the place to be for top-level sportscar racing action, by adding coverage of three-more senior championships to its already impressive line up.

In 2008, the 'High Speed Television' channel will carry highlights of the burgeoning FIA GT3 championship and GT4 European Cup, as well as Belcar, Belgium's hugely-competitive domestic GT series. This is in addition to its LIVE coverage of all five Le Mans Series races, LIVE and DELAYED-AS-LIVE coverage of every round of the American Le Mans Series, highlights of the British GT and French GT championships as well as from the Dutch Supercar challenge. The popular magazine show 'Endurance Mag' will also return featuring behind-the-scenes news, views and interviews.

Created by SRO in 2006, the FIA GT3 championship has expanded in popularity over the past two years and now features packed-grids of Ferrari 430s, Aston Martin DBRS9s Dodge Vipers, Porsche 997s, Lamborghini Gallardos and Ford Mustangs. 2008 will see the series race at Silverstone, Monza, Oschersleben, Brno, Nogaro and Dubai, with Motors TV bringing 26 minutes of highlights from each race.

The GT4 European Cup, another SRO-run series, is a similar concept to the FIA GT Championship but for GT4 machinery such as the Aston Martin Vantage, Nissan 350Z, Porsche Cayman, BMW Z4, Ginetta G50 or Ford Mustang FR500. The series will follow the GT3 calendar, with the exception of Dubai which is replaced by a race at Spa. Motors TV has 26 of minutes highlights from each round.

Belcar is Belgium's hotly-contested domestic GT series run for GT3-spec machinery. The Mosler MT900 was among the championship contenders last season, although a Porsche 997 ultimately took the title. The championship features seven rounds, four of which are double-headers, and includes the 24 hours of Zolder. Motors TV has 26 minutes highlights from each race.

Other highlights of the Motors TV schedule in 2008 include LIVE coverage of the DTM, V8 Supercar Championship and F3 Euroseries and extended highlights of the British F3 International Series and Formula Palmer Audi.
