We are enthused to partner with an industry leader in Genius to deliver a first-class and innovative betting experience with SRX. We look forward to driving fan engagement in new and creative ways, and know our partnership with Genius will set the foundation for that,” said Sandy Montag, CEO of The Montag Group and Partner and Co-Founder of Superstar Racing Experience.
“One of Genius’ global aims is to power the sports, betting and media ecosystem with the highest quality official data and video content. A key part of this is enabling new and emerging sports like SRX to harness the increased engagement and revenue opportunities that official betting products provide and we’re excited to connect their races with motorsport fans around the world,” said Sean Conroy, Commercial Partnerships Director at GSG.
