The World Challenge Championships, consisting of three separate categories—GT, GTS and Touring Car—are America’s top production car-based series. The World Challenge 2010 telecasts will be 90-minute programs, up from 60 minutes in 2009, with high-quality production values, renowned announcers providing color commentary and feature segments with behind-the-scenes footage. Some telecasts will air around IZOD IndyCar Series programming and series information will also be included on www.versus.com.

VERSUS is the national cable television home of the NHL, the IZOD IndyCar Series, World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) and the Tour de France. The network also airs college football, featuring nationally ranked teams from top conferences such as the Pac-10, Big 12 and Mountain West and is home to original programming such as Sports Soup and Sports Jobs with Junior Seau.

“We are thrilled that our 2010 events will air on VERSUS,” WC Vision VP of Marketing and Communications Dave Drimmie said. “The series returns to a weekend timeslot and this year our fans will have a longer and more in-depth program. We’re also looking at a syndication package that would enable World Challenge to reach a total of 160 million households.”

The 2010 SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge Championships television schedule has been set as follows:

Streets of St. Petersburg, Sunday, April 18 2 p.m.
