NEP UK has won the contract to provide ITV Sport with OB facilities for its coverage of UK horse racing.

Having previously provided facilities for Channel 4, the new deal starts in January and is expected to include 94 racing fixtures per year, including the Cheltenham Festival, the Derby, Royal Ascot and the Grand National.

ITV signed a four-year deal for terrestrial horse-racing rights in January.

One of NEP UK’s soon-to-be-launched Ultra HDcapable trucks will be used for horse-racing coverage.
