How to bet on motor racing
When it comes to betting on racing, everybody’s first instinct is to head on over to the horses or the greyhounds, but in recent years the sport of motor racing has also established itself as one of the top markets, with bookmakers increasingly expanding the markets around the sport.
While bookies will offer all of the typical racing markets when it comes to motor racing, an increasing number are now offering more advanced bets such as forecast betting, which was previously only available to horse and dog racing.
The increased popularity of the sport has led bookmakers to up their game when it comes to motor racing, and we here at Bonus Bets have got you covered with everything you need to know.
For more information on how to bet on individual sports, please check out our detailed how to bet guides using the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Where and how to live stream motor racing
Formula 1 is one of the biggest sporting franchises on the planet and as such, it is tied into major television deals across the globe.
As a result of this, none of the major bookmakers are able to offer live streaming for the events, though, some may have live vidiprinters to keep audiences up to date with all of the action.
For those who want to place a bet and witness a race take place on the bookie's website, however, Paddy Power and Ladbrokes both offer excellent virtual races which often offer great odds and are fairly exciting to watch.
