Felipe Motta Appointed Director of Motorsport.com - BRAZIL

Motorsport.com, a Miami based global technology and multimedia company, today announced it has signed an agreement with www.TotalRace.com.br, Brazil’s second-largest provider of online auto racing news and content.

“There is a significant opportunity for the Motorsport.com brand in Brazil and I'm delighted to announce our partnership with TotalRace.com.br,” said Charles Bradley, Editor in Chief, Motorsport.com. “Brazil has a proud motorsport heritage, including such racing legends as Formula One World Champions Nelson Piquet, Emerson Fittipaldi, and Ayrton Senna. Our entry into this market will position Motosport.com as the go-to source for the most comprehensive motor racing content in South America.

“This joint venture brings us one step closer in our aggressive business strategy of diversification and global expansion into 14 countries in 10 native languages in 2015,” added Bradley. “Our international footprint, including our formal affiliation with F1 and the Grand Prix Drivers Association (gpda.motorsport.com), makes sense for both parties.”

As part of the acquisition, the company announced it has launched Motorsport.com - BRAZIL (www.br.motorsport.com), an all-Portuguese based sister motorsports website which will cover all major racing series in native tongue, including Formula One, Stock Car Brazil, World Endurance Championship, MotoGP, World Rally Championship, FIA Formula E, and NASCAR.

The acquisition expands Motorsport.com’s worldwide global footprint and delivery of online motor sports news content and digital media platforms, including 360-degree broadcasting technology from its sister company 360racing.com.

One of the fastest growing motorsports websites in the world, Motorsport.com is a technically advanced digital distribution platform, which provides worldwide, multimedia motor sports coverage resulting in over 180 countries this year.
