Supercars: Series Filming its Own ‘Drive to Survive’ Docuseries

Australia’s Repco Supercars Championship is joining the streaming motorsport docuseries fray. Formula 1’s recent American surge in popularity has mainly been attributed to the success of Netflix’s Drive to Survive docuseries.

While Drive to Survive wasn’t precisely F1’s golden ticket into U.S. mainstream popular culture, several racing series have entered deals for their own docuseries.

NASCAR has Race For The Championship on the USA Network and Peacock, NBC’s streaming service. IndyCar is openly discussing a documentary series deal. reported that production has begun on a pilot for the new docuseries at last month’s Bathurst 1000. It will focus on Supercars as a whole instead of an individual team.  The goal for the Supercars Championship is to attract a much wider audience, as new ownership tries to broaden the appeal of the popular Australian touring car series.
