The show will be presented by Keith Huewen who stated: “It’s really exciting to have Indycar back on our screens, especially in HD.

“There is a lot of fantastic British talent in the sport at the moment, including current reigning champion Dario Franchitti. We’ve seen Dario’s career come to life on Sky Sports, and over the next two years we will see the conclusion.

“This year will be huge for Indycar and to have the next two Indy500 confirmed on Sky Sports really excites me – it’s where the world’s biggest motorsport event belongs.”
