Media release

Miami-based technology and multimedia company Motor1.com, a sister company of Motorsport.com, continues its global expansion into South America today by acquiring Brazilian market leader, Carplace.com.br. The acquisition of this digital automotive platform allows Motor1.com to expand its global network that already includes properties in the U.S., Italy, Canada, Turkey, and France.

Carplace.com.br supports the company’s global business strategy and aggressive expansion into new markets around the world, which will see Motor1.com in over 15 editions by the end of next year in as many as 10 languages. With this recent addition, Motor1.com continues on its path of international growth by expanding the industry-leading automotive digital platform on which it’s built.

"We are excited with the addition of such a valuable property like Carplace.com.br to our Motor1.com brand” said Senior Vice President of Business Development for Motorsport Network, Gustavo A. Roche. “With a presence in Brazil, a country of 200MM people and largest economic in the region, we now have six international editions operating on our custom content platform.”

Motorsport Network sets foot in Brazil and specifically, in Sao Paulo, with a superb team lead by Fabio Trindade, as the enterprise Managing Director, with Daniel Messeder as Editorial Director of br.Motor1.com and Felipe Motta leading the efforts on the Motorsport.com side.

“Being in Brazil is huge for Motor1.com, and we couldn’t have picked a better partner than Fabio and Carplace.com.br,” said Motor1.com Editor in Chief John Neff. “They’ve been able to reach millions of Brazilian car enthusiasts and shoppers on their own, and by joining the Motor1.com network, together we’ll reach millions more."

Carplace.com.br Owner and Publisher, Fabio Trindade, said: “We are very excited to make the CARPLACE part of Motor1.com and Motorsport.com family. I am sure that soon we will become the leading automotive network in the world.”

Our fans and followers will be very pleased with enhanced content and expansion of services we will develop and bring to life,” he added.

Motorsport Network speaks to 75 million people every month across 22 website editions operating in 15 languages.
