MotoAmerica TV Deal

Television coverage of road racing in North America has always been an issue. But when MotoAmerica took over the reins of the former AMA SuperBike series, TV broadcasting was a major priority.

After releasing the provisional schedule in October, MotoAmerica went to work on providing broadcast and online coverage of America’s new road-racing series. And on Friday, MotoAmerica announced a multimedia agreement for extensive coverage of the series, which begins at Circuit of the Americas in April as a support series for MotoGP.

The release says “all MotoAmerica events will be telecast on CBS Sports Network, as part of a multi-year agreement between Torque.TV and CBS Sports Network announced earlier this year. Programming will air on CBS Sports Network on weekend afternoons and in primetime. The 2015 television schedule will be released at a later date.”

MotoAmerica says Torque.TV is North America’s new online destination for motorsports action and the high-performance lifestyle, and will provide highlights and features.

“Having television and online coverage of our MotoAmerica series is key,” said three-time 500cc World Champion and MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey.

“It’s important to our fans, our teams, our racers, and the entire industry. We’re happy to report that we’ve been able to finalize these arrangements, ensuring fans around the country will be able to watch and enjoy the on- and off-track action our series will provide.”
