V8 Supercars nominated for Logie Award
The Seven Network has been nominated for a TV Week Logie for its coverage of the 2011 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
After missing out on a nomination last year, V8 Supercars will be aiming to win the award for the seventh time, having previously won the prestigious prize in 2000, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010.
Voting for the award was conducted through an online survey.
The Bathurst 1000 is up against the 2011 Australian Open Tennis (Seven), Melbourne Cup Carnival (Seven), State of Origin III (Nine) and the Tour de France (SBS).
The TV Week Logie Awards are the Australian television industry awards, which have been presented annually since 1959.
The coverage of ‘The Great Race’ is produced by V8 Supercars Television in conjunction with the Seven Network.
Last year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 was won by the Toll Holden Racing Team’s Garth Tander and Nick Percat.
The 54th annual TV Week Logie Awards will be held on April 15 at the Crown Entertainment Complex in Melbourne.
The event will be televised on the Nine Network.
