Race Central TV Becomes New American Home of V8 Supercars Australia Championship Series

Starting tonight, Denver-based Race Central brings exciting Australian racing action to motorsports fans across America

Race Central, one of the nation's premiere television and radio homes for local, national and international motorsports coverage, today announced it has been named the U.S. provider of coverage for the V8 Supercars Australia Championship Series (Aussie V8), an exciting racing series based in Australia. The Aussie V8 series is a groundbreaking addition to Race Central's lineup of TV, and radio productions that bring the greatest names in motorsports to fans throughout the U.S.

After a significant absence from American television, Aussie V8 Supercar racing action can be seen on national network TV beginning this Thursday, Friday and Saturday on Race Central TV, via the Altitude Sports & Entertainment network. Race Central TV will air the premiere show of the Aussie V8 series Thursday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m. MDT and 9:30 p.m. MDT; On Friday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. MDT and again at 4:30 p.m. MDT; Saturday after NASCAR Hooters Pro Cup Racing at 2:00 p.m. MDT and on the Rocky Mountain Regional Network at 5:00 pm MDT.

Race Central TV will air all of the remaining 2008 Aussie V8 Supercar events as part of its agreement with what many consider to be the premiere sports car series in the world. Race Central TV will also produce special, one-hour Aussie V8 Supercar events monthly.

This announcement comes on the heels of the addition of several new partners to the Race Central family, including IntelliTec College, Bimmer Haus Performance, and Sun Honda / Harley-Davidson / Kawasaki.

"The V8 Supercars Australia Championship Series is one of the fastest-growing forms of motorsports on the planet," said Kurt Hansen, host of Race Central and president of Motorsports Media Group, Inc. "All over the world, the Aussie V8 series has a massive fan base that follows the series on TV, the Web, etc. The Aussie V8 Supercars series offers incredible side by side racing, and will provide unique and powerful marketing opportunities for all of our partners. We're thrilled to be working with them and all of our sponsors as we bring Aussie V8 coverage back to American fans of sports car racing."
