More than 200 Hours of Motorsports on NBC this Weekend

by Associated Press posted Mar 14 2013 4:54PM
 NBC Sports Group kicks off more than 200 programming hours of motorsports coverage with this weekend's Formula One season opener.
 
     And that's got the IndyCar community more than a little concerned they'll now be overshadowed on the network they've called home since 2009.
 
     NBC executives say there's no reason to worry, there's plenty of room for both F1 and IndyCar across the various platforms. And in having both series with one television property, they see an opportunity for open-wheel racing to flourish in the U.S.
 
     IndyCar drivers and former CEO Randy Bernard were openly critical of NBC Sports Network last season over ratings, promotion and marketing. Most felt the cable network did not do enough to promote the series or attract viewers to the telecasts.
