FOX SPORTS is all gridded up for an epic weekend of Motorsport with the Monaco Grand Prix, Supercars and the Indianapolis 500 all LIVE on Foxtel this weekend. 

Viewers will be able to watch Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo and Will Power defend their Monaco GP and Indy 500 crowns with LIVE coverage back-to-back on Sunday night after a full day of Supercars coverage.

The lights will go out from 6.45pm tonight with fastest cars in the world on the glamourous streets of Monte Carlo getting the Jewel in the crown event of the Formula 1 season underway with Practice 1.

Ricciardo will face stiff opposition in his new surroundings at Renault with Lewis Hamilton, Valterri Bottas, Max Verstappen, Sebastian Vettel plus Monaco local Charles Leclerc, out to win on his home streets, when drivers look to honour F1 legend and Ferrari world champion driver, Niki Lauda.

On Friday the Supercars championship is set for a showdown deep in Ned Kelly country with the Winton SuperSprint Live and ad-break free during racing on FOX SPORTS across the weekend.

In the FOX SPORTS trackside studio, reigning Bathurst 1000 champion Craig Lowndes, will join Mark Skaife and host Jess Yates to give Foxtel customers insights and analysis across the weekend, plus Chris Stubbs with all the breaking news.

The team are joined by Supercars Experts Neil Crompton, Greg Murphy, technical analyst Mark Larkham and pit lane reporter Riana Crehan.

FOX SPORTS expert commentator, Mark Skaife, said:

“Winton is a short, tight and twisty circuit that offers quite a technical challenge to teams and drivers and produces very close racing.”

“A key point to note is that it’s not very sensitive circuit to aerodynamics and given the record of the Holden Commodore teams that test there, I think that we will see a very close contest this weekend.

“History suggests that Winton can produce surprise winners and if any of the top teams encounter trouble expect the Nissans of Rick Kelly and Andre Heimgartner along with the Brad Jones Racing Commodores of Tim Slade and Nick Percat to be right there to pick up the pieces.”

  

FOX SPORTS is available via Foxtel and Kayo.
