Alessandra Zinno, Autodromo Nazionale Monza Managing Director, said: "The channel of Autodromo Nazionale Monza on Motorsport.tv will be a collection of the best video content produced during the motorsport events and not only, hosted by the Temple of Speed. We have developed this collaboration to allow our audience to follow even remotely what happens on the track, especially in the weeks when fans will not yet be allowed to attend the races. We are the first racetrack in Italy to sign a partnership with Motorsport.tv through which we will reach 56-million users per month with our content. In addition to the clips available on-demand on all devices, including smart TVs, we will broadcast the live streaming of the races hosted at Monza for which the network holds the rights. The channel will also be a valuable showcase for all our customers who will organize events at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza."
