Where to watch the FIA WEC in 2021

The 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship will get underway later this week with the season-opening TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps which will be televised by several major broadcasters including Eurosport, la chaine L’Equipe and RTBF.

The FIA WEC app will also broadcast all race action from qualifying and the full six-hour race plus exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. Saturday’s 6 hour will commence at 13h30 local time (CET) in Belgium on Saturday 1 May. 

As part of a new three-year deal in France, free-to-air TV channel L’Equipe will show the pre-race build-up, the first two hours of action, as well as the final two hours of the race. The full race will be available online at L’Equipe.Fr.

In Belgium, RTBF will broadcast the first 75 minutes of the race plus the race’s final 45 minutes.  RTBF will also show the full race live on RTBF Auvio, their digital platform. Meanwhile, Eurosport will televise qualifying as well as well as the race’s first two hours and closing two hours live across Europe. Moreover, the full race will be live on Eurosport Player.

MotorTrend – a linear network dedicated to auto enthusiasts – will broadcast two hours live across the USA and the Caribbean, as well as post-race on MotorTrend network.

Residents in South America can watch the race via Fox Sports 3. Eurosport will also broadcast half of the race live pan Asia-Pacific and in Australia. Meanwhile, Super Sport will air the full race live as part of a pan-regional deal in Africa. Finally, J Sports will broadcast the full race live to Japanese fans who can tune in to see home drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Kazuki Nakajima in Toyota’s brand-new Hypercar.  

Don’t forget to download the FIA WEC app which is available worldwide (apart from USA and Canada where it is geoblocked). The app has English commentary on its live transmissions and official WEC highlights shows, with Allan McNish giving his expert insights.  McNish will be joined by experienced commentary duo Martin Haven and Graham Goodwin while Louise Beckett and Duncan Vincent will support the team direct from the pitlane.

For the rest of the world, there will be various TV channels and online platforms that will broadcast qualifying, the race and/or highlights.
