Tom Hnatiw, writer, broadcaster, producer, and automotive television show host, will be the official Announcer for the Formula 1000 Championship Series.

One of the most recognized television car guy guys in North America as host of Speed Channel’s Dream Car Garage and 'Sports Car Revolution', Hnatiw will be the voice of the F1000 Championship Series when the inaugural season of action in 2012. It will mark a return to pro series announcing for the Canadian native, as Hnatiw has been the official Announcer for several series over the years, including SCCA Pro Racing's World Challenge and Trans-Am championships.

“Tom and I have known each other since 1990, and I’ve always been impressed with his work and enthusiasm,” stated F1000’s Jon Lewis. “Tom has a great personality and is the perfect person to announce our races. I have no doubt that our fans will be treated to some of the most entertaining webcasts on the market.”

"I am pretty damn pleased with this set up with Formula 1000 Championship Series for three reasons,” stated Hnatiw. “The first is working with Jon Lewis again for the first time since 1996...oh sure our paths crossed all the time, but I think Jon is a very good motorsport guy and a first class manager. The second is that we're going to be working with a lot of young drivers, and I've been enjoying working youngsters since my own kids were born over 20 years ago. The third is that Formula 1000 is running two events with the USGT and Dodge Viper SRT Cup, two programs very near and dear to my heart. When you add the time trials and Driver Education which made the sanctioning body so well respected, Formula 1000 Championship drivers are going to have the opportunity to drive some door cars and perhaps even do some instructing. All in all, this a great opportunity for us.”

The F1000 Championship Series season kicks off on May 19-20, with Rounds One and Two at Mosport International Raceway in Canada.
