The FIA World Endurance Championship’s commentary team of Martin Haven, Allan McNish, Louise Beckett and Graham Goodwin will return for the 2018-19 season, in a relatively unchanged lineup for the official ‘world feed’ broadcast.

Haven, who completed a partial season alongside Toby Moody last year, will step up into a full-time role alongside three-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner McNish, will also be at all eight rounds.

Beckett will again serve as the championship’s pit lane reporter, with Goodwin providing support to the booth, as well as viewer feedback on social media, throughout the season.

For both editions of Le Mans, Moody will rejoin the team, along the addition of former WEC drivers Karun Chandhok and Peter Dumbreck, plus Julian Porter.

The world feed broadcast will continue to be shown on the WEC’s official app, although it is now geo-blocked to U.S. and English-speaking Canadian viewers, due to the championship’s new TV deal with Velocity and Motor Trend.

Velocity and Motor Trend will instead utilize Eurosport’s commentary team.
