Fourteen international broadcasters covering more than 100 countries have signed up to broadcast this year’s FIA Formula 3 World Cup and FIA GT World Cup at the Macau Grand Prix.

Demand for coverage has set a new record for the circuit now in its 63rd year.

The exciting new format incorporating two winner take all FIA World Cup events has resonated with TV stations and on-line streaming services.

Broadcasters are taking a mixture of live coverage and extended highlights material.

The TV action is a direct result of the FIA ramping up its support of the iconic Asian event.

Eurosport 1 confirmed its involvement on the eve of the Macau GP adding a vast cache of European and North African countries.

A highlights package to be broadcast on Tuesday November 22 will be seen across the regions.

Middle Eastern viewers are taking live coverage of both FIA World Cup events.

Defending Macau GP winners, Felix Rosenqvist (F3) and Maro Engel (GT) have added enormous impetus to this year’s race as they seek to claim their respective FIA World Cups.
