“Motor sports is one of the most technologically advanced sports, with a strong demand for data capabilities.

Through the cooperation with Motorsport Stats, Tencent Sports will provide Chinese fans with deeper and comprehensive high-quality content services and fully demonstrate the charm of motor sports.”

“Chinese fans will now be able to get closer to the sport and enjoy a richer experience; we are proud to feed Tencent Sport with our world-class data and stats service,” added Gustavo A Roche, SVP of Motorsport Network and managing director of Motorsport Stats. “Our technology captures and logs most of it, and the rest comes from our teams in the field: they live and breathe motorsport, spend their weekend at racetracks, that’s simply why we’re unbeatable in the vertical.”

Motorsport Stats is said to be the world’s leading repository of racing intelligence built on the sport’s Forix standard database. Every season, the Motorsport Stats data collection teams and analysts capture a stream of data and results from more than 50 events each weekend across multiple time zones.
