Super GT to Live Stream 2019 Season on Motorsport.tv

Super GT 163 May 2, 2019 by

Fans looking to watch live coverage of the 2019 Autobacs Super GT season will have to wait no more.

The GT Association, the main organizer of Super GT, has agreed an exclusive deal with Motorsport Network for international broadcasting rights. The network’s Motorsport.tv online channel will broadcast the whole series, starting from this weekend’s Fuji 500km race.

International fans were originally left without any TV coverage for the series’ opening round at Okayama. Let’s Go Racing (formerly NISMO TV), which live streams Super Formula, was unable to secure a broadcast deal in time. Despite attempts to intervene from some of the series’ most prominent non-Japanese racers — including champion Jenson Button — it seemed that Super GT would not find an international broadcast partner.

Fans initially feared that the Motorsport Network deal could have some consequences too. There were concerns that the network would lock the series behind a premium paywall. According to Super GT World though, the coverage will be free-to-view for everyone.

You’ll still not be able to catch the Friday practice or qualifying sessions, but at least now there’ll be full race coverage available.

Super GT’s international audience has been steadily growing over the years, and its connections with Gran Turismo still remain. GT Academy winner, Jann Mardenborough will continue to race for Nissan this season, driving the #24 Kondo Racing Nissan GT-R in the top GT500 category.

The broadcasts start with the Fuji 500km on May 4, at motorsport.tv.
