The Pirelli World Challenge Championships’ 25th season will again be televised on NBCSN. The full release from the series is linked below.


WC Vision today announced the television schedule for its 25th anniversary 2014 Pirelli World Challenge Championships season that will air on NBC Sports Network. All races will be broadcast in either 90-minute or two-hour programs aired in prime time on Saturdays or Sundays, with re-airs occurring on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

“Coming off of a record-setting 2013 season that saw tremendous growth in the series’ base of fans, cars and sponsors, we’re excited to see more FIA GT3 homologated cars entered to race with us in 2014 as well as an increase in the number of world-class drivers joining the series,” said Greg Gill, Vice President Marketing and Communications. “Our growth has allowed us the opportunity to expand our relationship with NBC Sports Network and produce an 8th broadcast for this coming season. The additional broadcast will be used to cover our races at Road America in June. The series’ return to one of the most revered and iconic race tracks in the country with all our classes racing will provide for an amazing broadcast for our fans,” added Gill.

Veteran sportscar racing announcers Greg Creamer and Calvin Fish will again provide play-by-play, color commentary and in-depth series analysis. As in 2013, Jeff Lepper will join Creamer and Fish for pit lane, and pre- and post-race segments. The broadcasts will include exciting in-car camera footage from series partner GoPro, unique feature segments, interviews with series personalities and behind-the-scenes footage.

“Our upcoming 25th anniversary season is going to be one filled with excitement with 50-plus car fields, returning champions like O’Connell and Aschenbach and new teams joining the series running world-class marques like the Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche 911 GT3 R, and Lamborghini Gallardo FL2 GT3,” said Scott Bove, WC Vision President and CEO. “For fans that can’t make our races in person or for those that attended and want to relive it, our broadcast partner NBC Sports Network will deliver all of the action.”
