Sport1 extends ADAC GT Masters contract

German sports broadcaster Sport1 has extended an agreement for rights to domestic motor-racing series the ADAC GT Masters.

The new three-year agreement with series organiser the ADAC grants Sport1 free-to-air rights to the championship in Germany, Austria and Switzerland until 2020. The deal includes live coverage of all races.

Sport1 will continue to show races from the ADAC Formula 4 and ADAC TCR Germany series, with these properties to also be made available through the Sport1+ pay-television channel and via an as-live stream at Sport1.de.

Sport1 will also present live coverage of qualifying sessions from the ADAC GT Masters across its platforms.

The broadcaster’s coverage is supported by a 60-minute magazine programme which airs after each race weekend.

Sport1 has been the exclusive live television partner of the ADAC GT Masters since 2015. The 2017 season concluded at the weekend at the Hockenheim circuit (pictured).
