– Success of WTCC Race of Qatar coverage leads to full-season partnership
Premier entertainment company OSN will bring live action from all FIA World Touring Car Championship races exclusively to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region in 2017.
The extended agreement between OSN and WTCC promoter Eurosport Events follows OSN’s successful broadcast of the 2016 WTCC finale in Qatar.
OSN will also show highlights of all races, the WTCC All-Access magazine programme and the season review.
François Ribeiro, Head of Eurosport Events, the WTCC promoter, said: “It was always intended that OSN’s live coverage of WTCC DHL Race of Qatar last year would be a precursor to a wider agreement to cover the entire 2017 season. Following the success of OSN’s live coverage of the event, which included a win for Morocco’s Mehdi Bennani and clearly captivated audiences, we’re very pleased to announce the continuation of our partnership with OSN. With two races in the MENA region, 2017 is shaping up to be a very exciting season and we’re delighted OSN will be an important component.
