RaceSpot TV are pleased to announce a commitment to broadcasting the Club UK & Ireland Skip Barber Championship throughout 2015 under the ‘Monday Nights are Skippy Nights’ tagline. This marks the first public broadcast commitment for RaceSpot TV for 2015, as they continue to expand on one of the best sim racing broadcast schedules in the business.

The Club based event, which takes place every Monday Night has had a long history of producing close, competitive racing, and has grown a reputation in recent months of wild finishes, which defy everything previously considered possible in an Open Wheel Formula car. Since taking over the broadcasting of the series in the Summer of 2014, RaceSpot TV’s coverage has quickly gained a cult following, offering the perfect series to kick of their week’s broadcasting schedule.

The commitment will see coverage of the series for 48 Mondays in 2015, which will span 4 series championships, and featuring on track battles at tracks in 4 continents. Each race will be broadcast live in 60FPS, with stunning visuals, and expert commentary from Wil Vincent and Rachael Whiteford. Wil offered the following comment to the news:

‘Monday Nights have really become a destination on RaceSpot TV for Skip Barber racing. What I’ve seen these drivers do has defied logic; you do not have drivers run three wide through the S bends at Sonoma!
We hope that Rachael and I can make Monday Nights as exciting for the fans as they are for us, because this really is racing at a completely different level to what people would ever expect’

When asked about the series, Rachael stated:

‘If I had to sum up the series in a series in a sentence, it would be ‘Hard, Fast, and totally without shame afterwards.’ The UK&I skip Barber Race Series provides some of the best racing I’ve ever witnessed on iRacing. They’re awesome!
They may drive a school car, but they school us in racecraft. It’s a pleasure to be calling the action (Or craziness, as it often is) every Monday Night’

Coverage starts at 8:45PM UK time every week (Therefore, 7:45PM GMT in British Summer Time), with Qualifying, followed by the race. 😀 Please consider donating to the Starbucks fund if you enjoy the coverage, which will go a long way towards supporting both Wil and Rachael’s coffee needs!
