NBC and NBCSN will combine to produce more than 20 telecasts of the Red Bull GRC Supercar and GRC Lites series, and all events will be live streamed on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app – NBC Sports Group’s live streaming platforms for desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs.

“This year’s Red Bull GRC telecast schedule on NBC and NBCSN will feature more racing action and original content than ever before, with over 24 hours of coverage between Supercar and GRC Lites action,” said Red Bull GRC CEO, Colin Dyne. “NBC Sports remains one of our most valued partners, and we look forward to working together again to deliver another great year of racing in 2017.”

“Red Bull Global Rallycross offers a unique brand of racing that viewers connect with,” said Jon Miller, President, Programming, NBC Sports and NBCSN. “The pace of GRC races combined with the skill of these drivers makes for riveting competition every time the cars hit the track.”
