Live ITV Racing coverage is back on our television screens this Friday.

ITV Racing has added an additional fixture to its ever-growing racing schedule.

The channel will cover Newcastle’s Stobart Energy Raceday evening fixture on Friday.
This follows on the back of the success of broadcasting Sandown’s Brigadier Gerard evening card on May 24 on ITV4.
It will also mean racing will benefit from a rest day during the busy FIFA World Cup schedule.
Mark Demuth, Controller of ITV Sport, Production, said: “We were delighted with how well the Sandown fixture was received.
“Adding Newcastle in among our ITV coverage of FIFA World Cup matches will mean that we can cross promote racing even more.”
The highest number of viewers since 2013 watching ITV’s coverage of the Investec Derby recently.
