Seven: the unrivalled home of motorsport in Australia

More motorsport is coming to the Seven Network in 2024, with Motorsport Australia securing a new deal with Australia’s most-watched television and digital network.

The Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship (ARC) and Polaris Motorsport Australia Off Road Championship (AORC) will remain with Seven following significant growth during its time on 7plus in recent years, further cementing Seven’s place as the Home of Motorsport.

Every round of the Shannons SpeedSeries will also be live and free on 7plus throughout 2024 and 2025, with a host of exciting categories locked in for the coming season at a wide range of venues across the country, including the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia Series, Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia – powered by AWS, National Trans Am Series, Monochrome GT4 Australia Series, Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge.

The Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship continues to go from strength to strength, and next year will feature more content across the screens of Seven. After one of the closest seasons in history, Toyota’s Harry Bates and co-driver Coral Taylor will be looking to go back-to-back against a host of some of the most modern rally cars in the world, with the first round to be held in Canberra on 5-7 April.

Motorsport Australia CEO Sunil Vohra was pleased to have the new deal with Seven.

“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,” Vohra said.

“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 echoed Vohra’s statements.

“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,” Martin said.
