Trans Am unveils 2023 broadcast package with MAVTV
The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli is thrilled to announce its 2023 broadcast package with MAVTV Motorsports Network, which will see Trans Am races air in a one-hour format on the Thursday night after 12 National Championship event weekends, in addition to being streamed live on social media.
MAVTV Motorsports Network is the only linear television network and media platform dedicated exclusively to the global culture of motorsports and powered by a passion for speed. Offering an unparalleled line-up of exclusive events and narrative programming, MAVTV explores the people, vehicles, races and places within the depth and breadth of global motorsports.
Produced by Greenlight TV, races will initially air in their entirety live on Trans Am and SpeedTour’s YouTube channels, before being edited into 60-minute features and broadcast to MAVTV’s 22 million North American linear households and 175 million connected devices. The Thursday-night primetime slot will include a two-hour block of racing, with the Big Machine Vodka SPIKED Coolers TA2 Series airing at 8:00 p.m. ET and the TA/XGT/SGT/GT class race airing at 9:00 p.m. ET. The block will be capped off by the 30-minute Showtime Motorsports docuseries, Road to Glory.
“We couldn’t be more excited about our 2023 broadcast package with MAVTV,” said Tony Parella, CEO of Trans Am. “We are thrilled to be able to offer fans coverage of Trans Am races on a consistent night and time. MAVTV’s Thursday-night block is the place to be for fans of all of Trans Am’s classes, and pairing the races with Road to Glory allows fans to see the ins and outs of our sport and get to know its drivers and teams. We’re also pleased to continue to provide our free, live race coverage on social media.”
“Trans Am has been a leader in motorsports for years in this country, and we feel privileged to collaborate with Tony’s team to bring the marquee category to our audience,” said CJ Olivares, Interim President of MAVTV. “The program will be a major pillar of our new primetime programming block, ‘World of Racing.’”
The 2023 Trans Am season kicks off at Sebring International Raceway February 23-26, with the races airing on MAVTV on March 2.
The live broadcasts of Sebring can be seen on February 25 and 26 on Trans Am’s YouTube channel (@TheTransAmSeries), as well as SpeedTour’s YouTube channel (@SpeedTourTV).
