How to Bet on Motorsports

Giancarlo Perlas March 17, 2022

Professional motorsports are one of the best-loved and most followed sports in the world today. The top races attract crowds in the tens of thousands with millions more watching the action on television and through live streaming apps. Are you a lover of the speed of the Formula 1 season that takes followers from Monaco to the United Kingdom or a fan of the drama of placing Nascar bets on the Daytona 500 and other major events on the schedule? There’s plenty throughout the year to hold your interest and keep you glued to the action.

Followers of motorsports love to make predictions on the outcome of races or the champions of a season. You can bet on a podium finish in Nascar, the number of finishers in a rally or the fastest lap in F1. Fans can also pick the name of the F1 drivers’ championship or constructors championship. When predicting a race, you give yourself a short-term interest and chance of quick success but when looking ahead and choosing a winning driver or team at the end of the season, you could have a pick to follow for many months.

Regardless of the predictions you like to make on motorsports, there is an online bookmaker out there for you. If you haven’t tried placing bets on your motorsport of choice or perhaps it has been a while since your last wager, you will be impressed by the changes made in the gambling industry. The leading betting apps have ramped up their coverage of motorsports, including the races covered, the markets available and the specials offered.

In this article, we shine a light on motorsports betting and the options open to you. The aim of this page is to make our readers better informed motorsports gamblers with a strong understanding of the markets available and the promotions offered. We even give a step-by-step guide on signing up for an online betting account.

Creating an Account

Before you can place a bet on the next race or the winner of this season, you must create an online betting account. You can do this in a matter of minutes and must complete the process only once. In the future, you can access your account by entering the username and password created. This allows you to bet from the comfort of your own home or when on the move using a smartphone gambling app. Never again will you miss the chance to make your predictions and place bets.

Follow the below steps to create your account in the quickest and most secure way possible.

–          Visit the homepage of your chosen bookie and click Join

–          Fill in the registration form, providing name, age, and address

–          Create a username and password

Bonuses and Specials

There is an abundance of online bookmakers vying for your attention with the most popular apps offering new players a welcome bonus. This is a promotion designed to encourage you to sign up for an account, choosing them over the competition. These deals are known as welcome bonuses and come in many different shapes and sizes. When looking to join a bookie and start betting you should take the time to find the sportsbook that is right for you.

The most popular time of welcome bonus offered is a deposit matched bet. This is a deal that gives you a free bet that will be equal in value to your first deposit and wager. For example, if you open an account by following the steps above, deposit $50 and gamble on F1, for example, you’ll land a $50 free bet token which can be used to gamble on the sport of your choice.

Markets Available
