    ESPN buys !

    Finding its spark in the mind of a passionate fan, Michel Marvie founded the first online motorsports information service 20 years ago. An IT specialist, driver, and great fan of motorsports, it is with the desire to share his enthusiasm that he established the first online motorsports-dedicated service during the late 1980s, the 36.15 CHRONO Minitel service.

    Drivers, partners, and spectators alike could consult results and news coming in live from the circuits or rallies, all at their leisure and from the comfort of their homes. The service was only available in France at that time... even if Michel Marvie was already travelling around the Formula One world with his Minitel in hand!

    Then the internet came along... In a constantly evolving world, Michel could not let such an opportunity pass. Already a pioneer with his online Minitel service, in 1995 Michel Marvie would be amongst the first to take the next step

    The dream has become reality: ESPN, the sports information specialist, by means of its many television and internet services, was able to judge the value represented by the RACING-LIVE.COM sites. That value wishes to progress further, and it is with such an objective in mind that the global group has today acquired the RACING-LIVE company and its affiliates, RACING-LIVE Japan and CAPSIS International.

    The acquisition will not affect the identity of the sites you are fond of:,,,, but they will all be enriched by an optimisation of editorial means, new technical support, a new organization, and for you – our readers – an expanded news content.
