The International Motorsport Association (IMSA) has outlined its broadcast plans for the 2016 WeatherTech Sportscar Championship season, with FOX Sports leading the coverage.
Former American Le Mans Series announcer Greg Creamer will deliver full-season race commentary for the FOX Sports network, assisted by analyst Calvin Fish. Pit-lane commentary throughout the season will be provided by ex-IndyCar driver Brian Till and Le Mans GT2 class winner Justin Bell, who was part of the booth broadcast team last season.
New features introduced to FOX Sports’ IMSA coverage in 2016 include the use of aerial cameras to follow the race action, as well as behind the scenes segments presented by Bell.
“We are focused on delivering the most compelling television content we can provide to our viewers,” said IMSA vice president of marketing David Pettit. “To achieve this goal, we have re-allocated our resources to add enhancements to the production of our telecasts and amplify the drama.”
“IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge racing is inherently thrilling, and together with our partners at FOX Sports and the broadcast team, we will improve how we showcase that excitement,” he added.
