Fox Sports has now confirmed that it will telecast this year’s Indianapolis 500 live in Australia, just days after IndyCar had announced highlights-only coverage for 2019.

In a release publicizing its international television deals, in its first year of in-house foreign distribution, IndyCar specified only one-hour post-race highlights for Australia, with no stipulation regarding its flagship race.

Fox Sports, to which IndyCar has returned in Australia after two years on ESPN, has now announced that it will air the Indianapolis 500 live.

“We’re pleased to announce that both IndyCar and the FIA World Rally Championship will be seen on FOX SPORTS in 2019, including the 103rd running of Indianapolis 500 LIVE on the same night as the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix," said a Fox Sports spokesperson in a statement provided to Speedcafe.com.

“This will sit alongside our coverage of every race of Formula 1, Supercars and MotoGP season – with F1 also available in 4K Ultra HD. As well FOXTEL subscribers will have access to our premium coverage of AFL, NRL, Cricket, Rugby, Football and Golf."
