The 2017 CAMS Australian Off Road Championship has secured the services of Neil Crompton’s AirTime Media to produce a television package for the three-round championship.
The 2017 AORC season will be covered on Fox Sports, with two 30-minute shows dedicated to round one, the St George 399, and round three, the Rainbow Desert Enduro, and a one-hour show featuring the 2017 Tatts Finke Desert Race.
Michael Smith, General Manager of CAMS Motor Sport – Events, says the television deal provides a solid base on which to further build the Australian Off Road Championship.
“The TV deal will ensure that a professionally produced event package will be on your screens after the rounds,” says Smith.
“AirTime Media will work closely with our own media team to offer the best all round coverage of Australian off road racing across multiple media channels—TV, the new look aorc.com.au website, YouTube and social media.
“Getting the AORC in front of people gives us a great opportunity to secure further commercial arrangements to make the AORC an even bigger and better championship for both competitors and motor sport fans.”
“We will be making further announcements in the next week confirming these arrangements.”
The CAMS Australian Off Road Championship has also unveiled an all new brand identity to accompany a newly built aorc.com.au website.
Experienced motor sport presenter and commentator Chad Neylon will host the AORC TV program for 2017.
“Hosting the CAMS Australian Off Road Championship program will be fantastic,” Neylon enthused.
“Off road racing has so much to offer—amazing locations, super tough machinery and competitors with exceptional talent, not to mention some great characters that we are going to get to know throughout the year.
“I’m really looking forward to showing the motor sport fans out there an ‘insiders’ view of the AORC.”
