Motorsport offers a unique combination of technology, sport and glamour. Formula 1, the pinnacle of the sport, boasts the world’s highest revenue generating annual sporting events, with the 17 Grands Prix in 2009 generating average revenue of almost $250 million (including central revenues and F1 team investment) – illustrating its global reach and financial muscle. However, motorsport is not just about Formula 1 - MotoGP, World Rally, Superbikes, Speedway, NASCAR and other series show the breadth and popularity of the sport.
We have a wealth of experience of advising a range of stakeholders within motor sports, including competition organisers, investors and teams drawn from Formula 1, MotoGP and other motor sport series.
Our expertise, coupled with our understanding of the motorsports industry, mean that the Sports Business Group is ideally placed to help the sport’s key stakeholders respond to the challenges of an extremely complex and diverse industry.
Our motorsport clients include:
Bridgepoint – acquisition of Dorna Sports.
“The due diligence report was high quality despite being prepared in a very tight timeframe. The Deloitte team had a good understanding of the unique position of the business and the opportunities it has available to it in the future.”
