SpeedSeries, Seven strike two-year TV deal

THE Shannons SpeedSeries will switch to the Seven Network for the next two years, Motorsport Australia has announced.

It comes after Motorsport Australia reclaimed the SpeedSeries’ broadcast rights from the Australian Racing Group, who had brokered what turned out to be a largely unsuccessful stint with Stan Sport.

The SpeedSeries will be live and free on 7plus for seasons 2024 and 2025, and joins the Repco Supercars Championship, Australian Rally Championship and Australian Off-Road Championship in Seven’s motorsport portfolio.

Selected SpeedSeries events will also be shown on 7mate, including Round 1 at Sandown on February 9-11.

“We’re excited to be expanding our existing partnership with the hard-working team at Seven to be bringing more motorsport more often to fans,” said Motorsport Australia CEO Sunil Vohra.

“We know how important it is for motorsport fans across the country to be able to access their content live and free, but also on demand, and the 7plus platform in particular will be a huge boost for the refreshed Shannons SpeedSeries, alongside the rally and off-road content that is already at home with Seven.

“Next year promises to deliver a huge year of motorsport across all our platforms and we can’t wait for Sandown to begin our season in 2024, with live and free coverage of the new-look Shannons SpeedSeries.

“Over the coming weeks and months, we expect to have some exciting announcements about our talent line up and production partners heading into the 2024 season across the various broadcasts.”

Seven Network head of sport Lewis Martin also welcomed the news.

“As your home of motorsport, we are ecstatic to deliver even more high-octane action to fans all over Australia, live and free on Seven and 7plus,” he said.

“With event coverage of the SpeedSeries, Australian Rally Championship, Off-Road Championship, and the Supercars Championship, Seven and 7plus has Australians covered for the biggest and best motorsport events year-round.

“We look forward to continuing our great partnership with Motorsport Australia to deliver epic content that is accessible to all Australians, live and free on Seven and 7plus.”
