Season 13

Lights, camera, action

February saw the return of the fastest motorsport show on television as 106 broadcasters around the world tuned in for the opening episode of a new series of Mobil 1 The Grid.

For the last 12 years Sunset+Vine’s flagship branded content property has been setting the benchmark for sponsored motorsport on TV and online. Thanks to Mobil 1, the production team have access to some of the sport’s biggest teams and drivers including Red Bull Formula 1, NASCAR’s Stewart Haas-Racing, Porsche, Corvette and Toyota Gazoo Racing. Thanks to Covid the racing is a bit different this year – or at least filming it is.

Calendars and schedules are still being changed, while crews are limited to where and who they can film with at race tracks due to the various protocols and restrictions put in place by individual championships.

Despite the challenges, 2021 has got off to its customary high octane start, complete with all-new titles and graphics. The show has already covered the Dakar rally, 12 hours of Sebring, Arctic rally and the new Porsche Carrera Cup Series in North America. We’ve spoken to Red Bull new boy Sergio Perez, taken an exclusive look at Toyota’s new WEC Hypercar and got the drivers at SHR to give us an exclusive preview to the Daytona 500 and NASCAR’s first dirt race since 1970. The team now has its sights set on races in South Africa, Texas, Colorado and Europe. If there’s racing on, they’ll cover it. Somehow.
