MotoAmerica, the new home of the AMA Superbike series, today announced it has secured a multimedia agreement for extensive coverage of the series starting in 2015. This comes as huge news for the sport, as the series failed to secure a TV package in 2014 under the management of DMG.
According to a MotoAmerica press release, all MotoAmerica events will be telecast on CBS Sports Network, as part of a multi-year agreement between Torque.TV and CBS Sports Network announced earlier this year. Programming will air on CBS Sports Network on weekend afternoons and in primetime. The 2015 television schedule will be released at a later date.
Extensive digital coverage of the MotoAmerica Series, including event highlights, features and other content will also be featured on www.Torque.TV.
“Having television and online coverage of our MotoAmerica series is key,” said three-time 500cc World Champion and MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “It’s important to our fans, our teams, our racers, and the entire industry. We’re happy to report that we’ve been able to finalize these arrangements, ensuring fans around the country will be able to watch and enjoy the on- and off-track action our series will provide.”
The provisional 2015 MotoAmerica Series schedule is as follows:
• April 10-12 Circuit of the Americas – Austin, Texas
• April 17-19 Road Atlanta – Braselton, Georgia
