Our race events combine high-speed, free-to-watch sport and family entertainment, attracting hundreds of thousands of spectators and millions of television viewers around the world, also playing a valuable role as an effective destination marketing tool. By creating high caliber events, we generate a significant level of inward economic investment at host venues, together with the commercial platform created for sponsors, partners and the wider marine industry.
Media and broadcast relationships play a key role in enhancing our international presence, delivering exposure for venues and commercial partners, and building the foundations for a commercially viable, credible and global marine motorsport platform.
