World Rallycross Secures Global TV Coverage


The inagural FIA World Rallycross Championship will be seen in over 816 million homes after securing coverage on over 30 different networks across 100 countries.

All coverage will include extended highlights of each World RX event with at least 25 broadcasters showing live or “as live” coverage of the races.

Martin Anayi, Managing Director of the FIA World Rallycross Championship revealed “It’s extremely exciting to have the support of more than 30 broadcasters

“Even though it’s our first season as a full World Championship, we’ve already secured commitment from some of the world’s biggest pan-regional broadcasters such as FOX Sports Latin America and BeIN Sports, as well as our existing deals.

“We’re still in discussion with some other regions so we may have even more broadcasters to add to our TV portfolio before the opening World RX in Portugal in just over a week.”

Global Head of IMG Motorsport, Rob Armstrong added: “Enthusiasm for World RX is growing quickly at the moment and I’m delighted that so many broadcasters have committed to televising our Championship. There’s no denying that rallycross is a fantastic spectator sport, but it is also one that lends itself perfectly to the small screen.”
