Bathurst 1000 misses Logie nomination
The Seven Network’s award-winning coverage of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 has not been nominated for a TV Week Logies Award this year.
‘The Great Race’ is generally a guaranteed nominee for the ‘Most outstanding sports coverage’ category, but this year, the V8 Supercars will not be in contention.
Coverage of ‘The Great Race’ has won the coveted award six times in the past 12 years (2000, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010).
This year’s TV Week Logie for ‘Most outstanding sports coverage’ will be contested by; 2010 AFL Grand Final (Seven Network); 2010 Melbourne Cup (Seven Network); Rugby League – 2010 State Of Origin – Game One (Nine Network); The Ashes 2010 First Test – Day One at the Gabba (Nine Network); and XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi (Foxtel).
The coverage of the Bathurst 1000 is produced by V8 Supercars Television in conjunction with the Seven Network.
Nominees for the 53rd Annual TV Week Logie Awards were announced this afternoon at The Green Room at Quay, in The Rocks, New South Wales.
The Logie Awards will be held on Sunday, May 1, in Melbourne.
