Globo renews free-to-air partnership with Stock Car Brasil

Brazilian media group Globo has renewed its domestic free-to-air rights deal with domestic Stock Car Brasil, starting from the 2019 season.

Globo will broadcast two races live and free-to-air on its Rede Globo network. The remaining 10 races in the motor racing championship are broadcast on its pay-television network SporTV under a separate deal. It will also exploit rights on its online globoesporte.com platform. The length of the new deal was not announced.

Globo has broadcast the Stock Car championship on its channels since 2000, with its most recent deal for free-to-air rights running from 2016 to 2018. Its agreement for pay-television rights runs until 2020.

Stock Car Brasil is promoted and organised by Vicar Sports Promotions.
