New TV package announced

Champ Car World Series organisers have released details of the series' domestic television package for next year, which will feature an increased number of races on major network channels

Seven of the 15 events on the 2006 schedule will be broadcast on either CBS Sports or NBC - the most since 2002 - while the other eight races will be aired on cable motorsports leader SPEED Channel.

"There is no question that Champ Car has made great strides in the last 12 months and we believe that the continued growth is evident in our 2006 television package," said Champ Car president Steve Johnson.

"Our network broadcasts showed steady increases in 2005 and we expect that trend to continue next season as we build our relationship with our valued television partners."

Among the races to be broadcast on network TV will be the curtain-raiser in Long Beach (on NBC) and a run of four consecutive races in the summer (on CBS).

The SPEED Channel broadcasts will include a half-hour qualifying show on the evening before each race and a 'lifestyle' programme, as well as coverage of all 12 rounds of the Formula Atlantic feeder series.
