Kiwi fans will be able to tune into this year’s Supercheap Auto TCR Australia and the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships on Sky Sport.
A new deal between the subscription-based service and Australian Racing Group sees all six rounds of the ARG Championships, plus the Bathurst International, broadcast live.
The first chance to catch the action will be this weekend for the Boost Mobile Race Tasmania meeting at Symmons Plains.
TCR, Touring Car Masters and S5000 are among the categories on offer for the season opener. Across the year, Kiwis can also expect to see the GT World Challenge Australia and Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge live on TV.
Currently, Sky has the exclusive rights to the Supercars Championship, World Endurance Championship, IndyCar, MotoGP, and the World Superbike Championship.
“We are pretty excited to be adding this fantastic suite of motorsport events to the Sky grid in 2021,” Sky CEO Sophie Moloney said.
“Races will feature expert and emerging drivers and their crews, and fans in Aotearoa will be able to chart their journeys in what promises to be an incredible season of racing.
“We’re looking forward to the first races next week.”
“The Australian Racing Group is excited to finalise our broadcast partners for the 2021 season, ensuring that every motorsport fan around the globe will have the opportunity to see our world-class categories in action,” said ARG CEO Matt Braid.
“Sky Sport is the perfect partner for us. They love their motorsport, and they are passionate about ensuring New Zealand fans have the best and most relevant racing on their screens.
“The Boost Mobile Race Tasmania event is going to be a great way to start the season. Famous track, passionate crowd and an incredible line-up of racing, and ARG is proud to help launch the 2021 racing calendar in this part of the world.”
Race Tasmania will be held over next Monday and Tuesday with each day’s coverage running between 1 pm and 8 pm on Sky Sport 5.
