ESPN has acquired motor racing website Racing-Live.com. This follows ESPN's acquisition of rugby news website Scrum.com and cricket website Cricinfo.com last year.
Racing-Live.com covers Formula 1 (F1-Live.com), Moto GP & Superbike (Moto-Live.com), Rally (Rally-Live.com), off road Rallies (Raid-Live.com), Endurance Sports-Cars and Kart racing. The site provides news and information in English, French, Japanese, Italian, German and Spanish and has about three million unique users per month.
"Motor racing has a global fan base, and this agreement will allow us to serve fans more motor sports coverage than ever before. We continue to build our online business through key acquisitions like Cricinfo.com and Scrum.com while expanding our current offerings including fantasy and localized versions of ESPNsoccernet.com. Serving sports fans online is priority for us and this acquisition complements our extensive NASCAR and Classic motor sports coverage across our multi-media platforms around the globe," said Russell Wolff, EVP and MD, ESPN International.
