SBS has long been the home of great motorsport for many decades and in 2021 will be providing ASBK race fans with both Live Free to Air coverage and the opportunity to catch all the action via SBS On Demand.
SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp said: “We are thrilled to be part of the evolution of ASBK”.
“The ASBK deliver gripping action on every occasion and will provide compelling viewing for all Australians.
“SBS has long been a great supporter of motorsports both domestically and internationally, and we can’t wait to assist in the growth of the ASBK by providing an accessible platform.”
ASBK welcomes back ASBK TV partner Fox Sports Australia as Official Pay TV broadcaster on their platforms via Fox Sports Channel 506 and Kayo. Fox Sports Australia is the home of MotoGP, WorldSBK and Supercars Championships, with ASBK joining this elite group.
International race fans can catch the action on Fox Sports Asia and Eurosport who continue to broadcast the Championship around the world.

All the thrills, spills and drama will be brought to you by new ASBK TV Team, with Host Riana Crehan, and World Endurance Champion and former ASBK Champion Steve Martin, specialist commentator Phil Harlum, and Mark Bracks – the voice of ASBK.
Motorcycling Australia CEO, Peter Doyle, said he was thrilled to have SBS back as the Official Free to Air broadcaster, again cementing our strong relationship with SBS and is excited to welcome back Fox Sports Australia, who have both supported MA and ASBK for many years. Added to the international coverage of Fox Sports Asia and Eurosport, ASBK couldn’t be happier with our plans for 2021.
“Our TV partners have been vital in ensuring we can build the ASBK Championship over the past few years and reach new audiences both here in Australian and internationally,” Mr Doyle said.
“Our TV partners are important to showcasing the talents of our ASBK riders, to teams and manufacturers here at home and around the world. Over the past few years we have seen a long list of riders head away internationally from the ASBK paddock, and we can all be proud of this success.”
ASBK TV production partner AVE returns in 2021 bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to the TV production through Motorsports TV.
