COTA accepting volunteer applications for United States GP


The Circuit of the Americas has announced that it is accepting volunteer applications for this November’s 2014 United States Grand Prix.

COTA in Austin, Texas has proven to be a hit in Formula 1 since making its debut back in 2012, welcoming droves of fans as the sport’s profile enjoys something of a revival in the United States.

In order to make the race the great event it is, volunteers have been called on once again to help out over the weekend at COTA.

Here’s some information from the track about the volunteer programme:

Our Volunteers play an integral part in each and every race, but especially our Formula 1 race which will take place on October 31-November 2, 2014.

Volunteering for Circuit of The Americas provides the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the greatest sporting events in the world!

As a Circuit of The Americas Volunteer, you receive free merchandise, discount ticket opportunities, chances to impact guest experience, and Volunteer opportunities for events outside of Formula 1.

Our Volunteers have a wonderful time and always receive rave customer reviews.

Please join our team and help us in bringing WOW moments to all Circuit of The Americas guests!

Wow moments are aplenty at one of the most exciting events in Formula 1, and what better way to be a part of it?

The two previous grands prix in Austin have been very successful, with Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel winning the events in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

In 2014, the fight for the world championship set to continue at COTA between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, and with just over a month to go, the final plans will be coming into place for the circuit’s headline event.

Peacock to stream all Supercross and Motocross races in 2023, plus inaugural SuperMotocross Championship

Peacock Supercross Motocross 2023
Feld Entertainment, Inc.

NBC Sports and Feld Motor Sports announced that Peacock and the NBC family of networks will stream all 31 races of the combined Monster Energy Supercross, Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and the newly created SuperMotocross World Championship beginning January 7, 2023 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California and ending October 14 in the place where Supercross was born: the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The combined series will create a 10-month calendar of events, making it one of the longest professional sports’ seasons in the United States.

The agreement is for multiple years. The season finale will air live on Peacock and the USA Network.

Peacock will present live coverage of all races, qualifying and heats across both series. The 31 total races will mark a record for the combined number of Supercross and Pro Motocross events that NBC Sports will present in a single season.

NBC, USA Network and CNBC will provide coverage of all races, including the SuperMotocross World Championship Playoffs and Final, through 2023 and beyond. For more information about the Peacock streaming service, click here.

“With our wide array of live and original motorsports offerings, Peacock is a natural home for Supercross and Pro Motocross races,” said Rick Cordella, Chief Commercial Officer, Peacock. “We’re looking forward to providing fans with an easily-accessible destination to find every race all season long, including the exciting finish with the newly formed SuperMotocross World Championship.”

MORE: A conversation about media rights created the new SuperMotocross World Championship Series

The NBC family of networks has been home to Supercross for the past several seasons and this is a continuation of that relationship. The media rights for both series expired at the end of 2022, which allowed Supercross and Motocross to combine their efforts.

In fact, it was that conversation that led to the formation of the SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX).

The SMX series will begin on September 9, 2023 after the conclusion of the Pro Motocross season. Points will accumulate from both series to seed the SMX championship, which creates a record number of unified races.

“The SuperMotocross World Championship adds a new dimension to the annual Supercross and Pro Motocross seasons that will result in crowning the ultimate World Champion,” said Stephen C. Yaros, SVP Global Media and Supercross for Feld Motor Sports. “We are thrilled to be extending our relationship with NBC Sports so our fans can watch all the racing action streaming live on Peacock and the option to also watch select rounds on NBC, USA Network and CNBC.”

Complete 2023 coverage schedules for Supercross, Pro Motocross and the SuperMotocross World Championship on Peacock, NBC, USA Network and CNBC will be announced in the near future.
