The Lionheart Racing Series and RaceSpot TV announced today a multi-year broadcast package covering all three of Lionheart’s premier online racing championships.
Formed just a year apart from one another, the Lionheart Racing Series and RaceSpot TV have grown considerably over the past seven years, gaining increasing popularity within the iRacing community. 2021 will see both paths meet, moving forward to bring Lionheart’s live events to the next level.
RaceSpot TV is a live eSports broadcast network focusing primarily on sim racing. RaceSpot TV produces over 15 hours of high-quality live broadcasts each week to a global audience.
“Since our inception our company motto has been no gimmicks just awesome broadcasting,” says Wil Vincent, RaceSpot TV COO and Head of Broadcast Operations. “We believe that our job is to be storytellers for some of the world’s biggest eSports moments, whilst ensuring we provide a recognizable motorsports product to viewers who may be new to the concept of competitive eSports. We invest heavily in every aspect of our product to ensure that every broadcast provides informative commentary and lasting memories.”
Lionheart Racing Series founder Jorge Anzaldo was excited at the opportunity to work with one of the world’s leading eSports content producers.
“This couldn’t have come at a better time,” Anzaldo said. “We have worked extremely hard to get to this point. Forming this partnership with RaceSpot TV is going to open so many doors for our league. With RaceSpot TV and ESTV airing our races 2021 is going to be the biggest in league history. I’m excited to have RaceSpot TV handling our live race coverage.”
RaceSpot TV will provide live coverage for Lionheart’s IndyCar, Speedway and Retro Series for a combined 58 events in 2021.
In addition, Lionheart events will also air on the first 24-hour eSports network, ESTV. The series debuted to impressive audience numbers late in the 2020 season on the relatively new platform.
The IndyCar Series will kick things off March 3rd 2021 at Homestead Miami Speedway. Broadcast times will begin at 9:35 PM CST. For further information on the Lionheart Racing Series and its 2021 Schedule visit www.lionheartracingseries.com

The Lionheart Racing Series and the The Guitammer Company announced its continued partnership for the upcoming 2021 Season.
The deal, announced by Lionheart Racing Series founder Jorge Anzaldo, will see The Guitammer Company’s popular line of ButtKicker Gaming products featured as the title sponsor to Lionheart’s IndyCar Series.
“We were so excited for the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with The Guitammer Company and ButtKicker,” Anzaldo said. “Being able to bring these great products to our drivers, fans and other series partners once again, for a fourth year and especially as the title sponsor to our most popular series, just proves how successful this league has become, and how supportive our drivers are of the companies that invest in us.”
In 2021, ButtKicker Gaming products will provide eight prizes to drivers across the Lionheart Racing Series. Winners of the ButtKicker Rookie of the Year in both the Lionheart IndyCar Series and Lionheart Retro Series will have the choice of a ButtKicker Gamer2 or ButtKicker Simulation Kit.
Other ButtKicker prizes will be handed out throughout the year as part of prize packages to drivers in all three series.
“We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Lionheart Racing Series”, said Guitammer Head of Gaming Andrew Luden. “Jorge and the Lionheart team have created a powerhouse racing series that we’re proud to support. We look forward to their continued growth and success in 2021”.
ButtKicker also returns as sponsor of the P1 awards, given to drivers earning poles and wins in a Lionheart sanctioned race. The starting lineup for each race broadcasted by RaceSpot TV and ESTV will also feature the Starting Grid presented by ButtKicker in 2021. ButtKicker will also be the title sponsor to a total of five races in 2021, including two Triple Crown events. Additionally, ButtKicker will also be the presenting sponsor of the “Countdown to Green” 15-minute pre-race show for Lionheart’s IndyCar Series.
“We can’t thank The Guitammer Company enough for their continued support of our series,” Anzaldo said. “They’ve committed again to offering a discount in the 2021 season to drivers and fans of our league. There’s nothing better than a partner who is willing to work with you and for your drivers and fans. The Guitammer Company has gone above and beyond, and we really cannot thank them enough and I’m so excited to have them back on again for our 9th Season.”
