“We are the first racetrack in Italy to sign a partnership with Motorsport.tvthrough which we will reach 56-million users per month with our content. In addition to the clips available on demand on all devices, including smart TVs, we will broadcast live streaming of the races hosted at Monza for which the network holds the rights. The channel will also be a valuable showcase for all our customers who will organize events at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.”
Motorsport.tv president, Eric Gilbert, added: “I’m thrilled to see such a historic racetrack like Autodromo Nazionale Monza joining the Motorsport.tv partner channel program. Ever since we launched our channel program, many manufacturers, racing series and content creators have joined us. Monza is the very first racetrack and we’re excited to see all the opportunities of content creations explored. 2022 will mark the 100th anniversary of Monza and now Motorsport.tv canbe there all the way to celebrate this full century of racing history.”
