Thrill One Sports and Entertainment has renewed its US media rights agreement with NBC for the upcoming Nitro Rallycross season, with all races to be presented live exclusively on Peacock.
All ten Nitro Rallycross events from around the world in the 2022/23 season, featuring nearly 80 hours of coverage of heats, qualifiers and main event races, will be presented live on Peacock with encore presentations on CNBC and NBC Sports digital platforms. NBC will also air a season finale race encore during the season.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Nitro Rallycross for a second consecutive season, and Peacock is the perfect place for NRX superfans to come for every minute of live racing,” said Mike Perman, vice president, programming, NBC Sports. “The action-packed, innovative style of NRX racing is a seamless fit in NBC Sports’ extensive motorsports portfolio.”
“It is great to have Nitro Rallycross back on Peacock for another season,” said Joe Carr, Thrill One Sports and Entertainment chief executive. “Nitro RX will expand globally to 10 races this season and debut the FC1-X, our all-electric, 1000+ HP supercar. With market leaders like Nascar and IndyCar, NBC Sports is the perfect home for our disruptive new motorsport.”
Nitro Rallycross race action begins with the 2022/23 season opener from Lydden Hill in Canterbury, United Kingdom, on 18th and 19th June across Peacock, CNBC, as well as NBC Sports digital platforms. Complete season-long programming details will be announced in the coming days.
Last season, Thrill One and NBC Sports presented five races live on Peacock and encores on NBCSN in the first year of the media rights partnership.
