     Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “Sir Ben Ainslie is one of the most famous British sporting names of all time, given his fantastic achievements at multiple Olympic Games. The America’s Cup is spectacular viewing, and I can’t wait to see this prestigious tournament on BT Sport, giving fans the chance to follow Sir Ben Ainslie’s quest to bring the cup home.”

     Sir Ben Ainslie, Landrover BAR, said “Fantastic news that BT Sport, the UK live rights holder will show the first 12 days of the America’s Cup racing on BT’s Freeview channels, starting on 26th May, it is a real boost for the team and British fans.”

Coverage will be anchored by Suzi Perry live from the BT Sport studios in London and will include expert analysis from British professional racing driver Mike Conway and top sports journalist, Richard Williams.

     Having already won the Monaco Grand Prix, Alonso has set his sights on becoming only the second driver after the late Briton Graham Hill to win the Formula One championship, Indy and Le Mans.

     Coverage of the race will start at 4.30pm live on BT Sport/ESPN, and will also be available on www.btsport.com or via the BT Sport app. BT Sport is showing every Indycar race throughout the 2017 season.
