Rumours have circulated on Sportsnet showing IndyCar for some months now (I think Bruce Dowbiggin first reported it in the spring). Sportsnet have now confirmed that they will show all IndyCar races starting next season, including the Toronto Indy and Indianapolis 500.
TSN’s coverage was often tape delayed (seemed to happen multiple times per year) due to commitments to football and NASCAR. Since Sportsnet really only has the Jays in the spring and summer, the new deal should provide IndyCar a more consistent presence on Canadian television.
I’ll have more on this later in the week.
