ESC says the racing format will make for "exhilarating television viewing, with creative camera angles and  production techniques". 

The BBC will use the ESkootr championship's own programme, created by Canadian firm Boombox, which will include a pre-race build-up, live commentary and post race interviews, as well as highlights and analysis. 

“We want the Championship to be accessible and working with the BBC will ensure the widest possible audience has the opportunity to see the sport,” said ESkootr’s chief content officer Sharon Fuller. 

“We can’t wait to give fans their first taste of eSC and introduce them to our new form of racing. It is going to be fast, competitive and unpredictable, with innovative TV production taking viewers right into the heart of the action”
