Internationally renowned livestream broadcaster Motorsport.tv will beam all Australian Racing Group and Shannons Motorsport Australia Championship events to its global audience this year.

For New Zealand motorsport and race fans, confirmation of the broadcast partner will be made shortly.

"Motorsport.tv is thrilled to carry the livestreams of all TCR Australia, S5000 and all of the racing that comes with the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships events in 2021,” said Motorsport.tv president Eric Gilbert.
“We offered live coverage of their last season in 2019 and had great response from racing fans around the world.
“In addition to those two exciting series, we will also have live coverage of Trans Am and Touring Car Masters, making the whole package even more compelling."
ARG CEO Matt Braid added: “ARG is pleased to confirm that Motorsport.tv will bring the colour, speed and excitement of our great racing categories to its international audience in 2021.
“This relationship continues from our Motorsport.tv partnership in 2019, so it’s great to retain a strong and engaged partner.
“The ARG categories offers such a diverse array of machines, including the classes that have such a strong international flavour like of TCR, GT World Challenge and Trans Am.
“Also, we have some pure home-grown racing like S5000 and Touring Car Masters. There’s something for everyone and we hope as many international viewers will enjoy the racing as much as we know the Australian and New Zealanders will.”
