Velocity Is the New Home in the U.S. and Canada for Live Flag-to-Flag Coverage of the Iconic 24 HOURS OF LE MANS

Velocity, in partnership with Discovery, Inc. owned Eurosport, announced today a new multi-year agreement to become the exclusive U.S. and Canadian home for live flag-to-flag coverage of the 24 HOURS OF LE MANS beginning with this year's race on Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17. Under the agreement, Velocity and Motor Trend will also live broadcast the full FIA WORLD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP (WEC) "Super Season", which begins with the Spa-Francorchamps event this May and culminates with the 24 HOURS OF LE MANS June 15-16, 2019.

"Without question the 24 HOURS OF LE MANS is the most iconic auto racing event in the world," said Robert S. Scanlon, President of Velocity and Motor Trend Group Video Content. "Eurosport produces world-class live coverage of the event every year. Nowhere else in the U.S. or Canada can fans access their best-in-class coverage, and get a broader, richer Le Mans experience than with Velocity on television, MotorTrend.com online and the Motor Trend app on connected devices."

In the runup to this June's 24 HOURS OF LE MANS MotorTrend.com and the Motor Trend app will feature live practice and qualifying sessions to audiences in the U.S. and Canada. During Velocity's live broadcast of the 24 HOURS OF LE MANS, the direct-to-consumer platform will deepen the viewing experience with digital only extensions including onboard race car cameras, pit lane cameras, audio of team communications and real-time scoring updates.

The coverage extensions will be available to audiences in the U.S. and in Canada on MotorTrend.com, and by using the Motor Trend app on millions of connected devices via IOS/Apple TV, Google Play, Roku, Xbox, Chromecast and Amazon platforms. Fans can also find additional editorial coverage of the WEC "Super Season" on the Velocity and Motor Trend social media channels.

Velocity's live coverage will consist of the full 24 HOURS OF LE MANS in 2018 and 2019 and the 1000 MILES OF SEBRING in March 2019, as well as the start and finish of the additional WEC events.
