I'm not in on this. Does Warburton have a stake in ARG?
yep.
Here before 7 came calling


Five months after leaving APN Outdoor, media executive James Warburton has set up his own consultancy, working with private equity firms CVC Limited and Alceon Group, and will join the board of Australian Racing Group.
Mr Warburton left APN Outdoor in last October following its $1.2 billion acquisition by French out-of-home advertising giant JCDecaux.

From The Aus
Seven West Media will add Australian motorsport to its broadcasting stable in the new year, signing a multi-year deal with Australian Racing Group.
James Warburton, newly appointed chief executive of Seven West Media, sits on the board as non-executive director of the motor sports events business set up by former Wilson Security chief executive John McMellan and property developer Brian Boyd, and has invested in the business.

Mr Warburton was also previously chief executive of Supercars, a role which saw him sign the sport’s biggest media deal, a six-year $241 million television rights contract with Fox Sports, Foxtel and Ten. The price of the new deal has not been disclosed.

Under the multi-year arrangement, Seven will broadcast Australian Racing Group events including the TCR Australia Series, S5000 and categories from the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships, providing a minimum of six hours of coverage on Saturday and Sunday on Seven Network and through simulcast on Seven’s online platform, 7 Plus.

Seven will also broadcast The Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour and the Bathurst International. The inaugural TCR Australia Series and the S5000 were previously broadcast on SBS.
