Stunning TV figures for the first Auto GP rounds

Auto GP keeps going from strength to strength even when it comes to TV figures. The Series, which averaged an audience of nearly 3 million viewers per race in 2011 in Europe alone, managed to do even better in the first rounds of the 2012 campaign. Both the Valencia and Marrakech events were followed on Eurosport and Eurosport 2 by more than 3.500.000 viewers (*), a 25% improvement compared to the 2007 average.It’s a remarkable achievement, especially considering that this data is again referred to European territory alone, not including all the Countries reached by Eurosport in the Asia/Pacific area and the ones reached by individual agreements with national and pan-national broadcasters in the North and South American area.Besides reaching huge crowds on TV, Auto GP is ready to do the same on track: in less than two weeks the Championship will race in Hungaroring, a track that last year did set an attendance record with 75.000 people gathering on the grandstands throughout the weekend.(*): Source TNS Gallup, AGF/GfK Fernsehforschung, SKO, AGB NMR, ARMADATA S.R.L-GfK Romania, KANTAR Media, MMS, BARB - All Individuals - AdvantEdge
