V8 Supercars

V8 Supercars is a sport on the rise globally. Australia's premier motorsport category is regarded around the world for its action-packed racing and entertainment. Already more popular in Australia than Formula 1, V8 Supercars is one of only two motorsport categories in the world considered more popular in its own country than F1. The other is NASCAR in the United States. V8 Supercars continues to evolve, driven by factors including: staging races in locations in Australia and overseas; extensive marketing to broaden the sport's appeal; increasing the viability of teams and developing more meaningful and lucrative sponsorship arrangements, and; fully exploiting media rights.
