1 Comment

The Andretti Formula E team has entered into partnership with Amlin for the second season of the FIA Formula E Championship.

Amlin, formerly with Aguri, has now shifted teams. TE Connectivity, which ran on the Andretti FE cars at the London season finale earlier this summer, has also taken on a greater sponsorship role.

Drivers are yet to be revealed, but are expected to include two of the drivers who competed for Andretti FE in the inaugural 2014-2015 season.

The full release confirming both the Amlin and TE Connectivity components is below:

Andretti Formula E has announced today that the racing outfit has partnered with UK-based, global insurance and reinsurance provider to return Amlin to the FIA Formula E Championship for a second season of competition and beyond.

“I couldn’t be more excited about Andretti Formula E’s season two plans,” said team owner Michael Andretti. “Amlin has done a great job building their brand across various platforms, and has shown a passion for motorsport; we look forward to what the new relationship can bring.”

With global headquarters in London, Amlin’s multi-year alignment as the primary sponsor for Andretti Formula E seeks to push the boundaries in motorsport; calling on both companies’ shared common values of integrity and professionalism.

Amlin CEO Charles Philipps said, “Amlin and Andretti were quick to spot the potential of Formula E. Both organizations are data driven and tech-focused, meaning there is much to look forward to over the coming seasons. Amlin’s global strength in data analysis and our long-term view of business means fits well with this series and combined with Andretti’s excellent motorsport pedigree means we are looking forward to a fantastic few years.”

A natural fit, the relationship between Amlin and Andretti goes beyond a sponsorship agreement. Uniquely in the racing series, experts from Amlin’s insurance modelling and analytics team will be working with the Andretti Formula E race engineers to develop an in-depth understanding of what the capabilities of the new Andretti ATEC-01 car and how the team can maximize performance in the first season of allowed opportunity in open technology development amongst the teams and new eMotor manufacturers.

Official pre-season testing goes green August 10 with six official series test days prior to the Championship’s 2015/2016 launch. The second season of the FIA Formula E Championship begins in Beijing on October 17, 2015 and runs through to the season finale double-header in London, for a total of 11 rounds of electrifying competition.

Andretti Relationship with TE Connectivity Expands to Include Major Formula E Sponsorship

In addition to being on the frontline of new eMotor tech development and serving as the lead technology partner for Andretti Technologies, TE Connectivity, a global leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, is now also the major sponsor for the Andretti Formula E Race Team. The venture into race team sponsorship furthers TE’s commitment to sustainable, clean-energy innovations.

Integration and collaboration between the two companies will utilize TE Connectivity technology and engineering support within the Andretti Technologies ATEC-01’s powertrain development program that will be driven by Andretti Formula E in this second season of competition.

“TE’s connectivity and sensor solutions powered every Formula E car in its inaugural season,” said Amy Shah, Chief Marketing Officer of TE Connectivity. “We are committed to advancing technologies that are smart, safe, green and connected. This series has the potential to influence and create sustainable, next-generation technologies that extend beyond motorsport. We are proud to expand our relationship with the Andretti organization, a team that shares our passion for advanced engineering and innovation.”

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.
