FIA WEC with new commentator line-up

FIA World Endurance Championship has announced three new voices for their live stream.

The last few seasons they have sold a video streaming package for computer and their app, where the series own commentators have commentated the races from the track and had their own pit reporter.

For the 2017 there will be some new voices coming out of the speakers if you choose this stream.

Allan McNish will be the new expert commentator, where he will cover six rounds of the WEC. The double Le Mans winner and FIA WEC World Champion alongside Tom Kristensen and Loic Duval in 2013 is already used to working on TV. He has been with BBC and Sky Sports and others to the Formula 1 races, where he has been in the same role.

Toby Moody is known by many as a MotoGP commentator throughout many seasons, but he has experience from the Dakar Rally and BTCC as well. He has also worked for Audi among others at Le Mans, plus the TV channel called Quest TV through 2015, where they covered the WEC season.

Martin Haven is also a well-known voice in motorsport. He has been a main commentator on WTCC since its start, and commentated on plenty of other motorsport. During the winter months he is the main commentator on bob sleigh. He has also been commentator for FIA Formula Championship this year.

Louise Beckett will continue as pit reporter like in the previous seasons. She knows Martin Haven very well from when they worked together on WTCC years through many seasons. But now she is probably more known for her FIA WEC work rather than her previous FIA WTCC work.

Graham Goodwin will continue to help with the TV coverage, while his partner in the commentary box through the last few seasons, John Hindhaugh, will jump back home to Radio Le Mans and covers the qualifyings and races on – and of course Radio Le Mans at the big 24 hours race, where the radio station will once again provide the English language radio commentary around the track.

The FIA WEC season starts with two test days next weekend at Monza, before the season starts for real in three weeks’ time at Silverstone.
