WC Vision has announced the television schedule for the 2013 Pirelli World Challenge Championships that will air on NBC Sports Network. All races will be broadcast in either 90-minute or two-hour programs airing Saturday or Sunday. Additionally, WC Vision and NBC Sports Network have signed a two-year broadcast agreement that is inclusive of 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Renowned motorsports announcers Greg Creamer and Calvin Fish will again provide play-by-play, color commentary and in-depth series analysis. Ashley van Dyke and Jeff Lepper will join Creamer and Fish for pit lane, and pre- and post-race segments. The broadcasts will include unique feature segments, series personalities and behind-the-scenes footage.

“As North America’s number one sprint road racing series it only makes sense for the Pirelli World Challenge Series to partner with one of North America’s leading motorsports media organizations, NBC Sports Network. We’re pleased to sign this multi-year deal and we look forward to another season of increased viewership,” said Scott Bove, WC Vision President and CEO.

    “As North America’s number one sprint road racing series it only makes sense for the Pirelli World Challenge Series to partner with one of North America’s leading motorsports media organizations, NBC Sports Network.”

    All of these races air from two weeks to almost a month after the event has been run. That isn’t the kind of scheduling one would expect from a “premier” series on a “leading motorsports organization.” Live is best, but a same-day delayed broadcast would be better than this.

    What is this garbage? A commercial for Pirelli? What a waste of programming. Is you need programming that badly, you could at least start showing the 1976 F1 season and begin your promotion of the film Rush (distributed by Universal, owned by, you guessed it, NBC).

    I’d rather watch anything than this series considering Pirelli’s role in modern F1.
