Ski Racing Australia announces 2010 TV schedule
21 September, 2010

Ski Racing Australia has announced today that television is firmly back on the agenda for the 2010/2011 season after agreeing terms with inSport Media at the AGM in Sydney.

After putting an announcement about the continuation of television on hold earlier this season to source more  information, members of the SRA board held lengthy discussions with inSport Media about how to better manage the sports profile, and incorporate other forms of media into a more complete package for the current season.

“We’re very happy with what inSport Media have presented,” SRA’s Rick Love confirmed.

“It’s a more complete package than we’ve ever had in the past, and it will more closely link the sport to the fans and the viewers of the sport on television.

“It’s always great to have ski racing televised, but it was important for us [SRA], and for our members, to make sure we achieved the best deal possible, and we’re all very excited about what’s in store.”

The agreement for the remainder of the 2010/2011 season will see one hour of SBS coverage on the high-rating Speedweek program, and one hour of FOX Sports coverage for the following events;

• 30-31 October, 2010 – Murray Bridge 110 (Berri)
• 20-21 November, 2010 – Sydney Bridge-to-Bridge
• 11-13 February, 2011 – Southern 80, Echuca
• 12-13 March, 2011 – Euston 80, Robinvale
• 9-12 April, 2011 – Australian Titles, Wisemans Ferry
• 23-24 April, 2011 – Mildura 100

“It’s a comprehensive program compared to what Ski Racing has enjoyed in the past,” inSport Media’s Sean Henshelwood confirmed.

“We’re planning a complete revision of the television format to include two half hour shows for each round – one of which will provide a magazine style format with interviews, technical pieces and features, whilst the other show will showcase racing at the top end of the sport, with detailed coverage on various other classes at different stages during the course of the year.

“And it’s not just television, the marketing program we’re planning aims to significantly increase the media profile of the sport, with regular press releases and stories provided to print and electronic media, news clips provided to national television networks, and the supply of footage to international networks as well as the worldwide web.

“We’re very excited about the prospects of working with Ski Racing Australia to assist them with the ongoing promotion and profile of what is one of Australia’s favourite summer sports.”
