SRO today announced that they have secured live television coverage for the FIA GT3 European Championship across Europe.  The championship will be broadcast live by pan-European motorsports broadcaster Motors TV and it will also receive live coverage in Italy by Nuvolari. The agreement with Motors TV provides live coverage in Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Macedonia, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and Ukraine.

The FIA GT3 European Championship was launched by SRO in 2006 and has proved to be one of the biggest success stories in European motorsport. It is anticipated that it will feature a grid of up to 40 cars, made up of up to 11 competing brands. The new season gets underway at Silverstone on May 1.

Manufacturers expected to be on the grid include Ascari, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Ford, Lamborghini, Mercedes and Porsche. To ensure close racing and to add to the spectacle the cars undergo a 'balance of performance' test pre-season.

Stephane Ratel, Founder and CEO of SRO is anticipating another season to match 2009 which went down to the final race of the season. “The FIA GT3 European Championship goes from strength-to-strength. It is great news that race fans all around Europe will be able to follow the action live on TV. The sight of so many super-cars in close action is one of the most best in motorsport, and I'm sure that it will be a hugely popular one for our broadcast partners.”
