The 2021 IndyCar Series will feature a face very familiar to Australian sports fans in the shape of Scott McLaughlin. The three-time Supercars champ will race in the States this year and make a push for one of the biggest prizes in Motorsport, the IndyCar title. Find out how to watch and stream races here.
IndyCar Series 2021 TV Preview
The IndyCar Series provides some of the fastest motorsports racing on the planet, with drivers competing on ovals and street circuits as well as more standard race tracks. The Series is also home to one of motor racing’s most recognised events, the Indianapolis 500.
There’s plenty of well-known drivers taking part in the championship this year. They include New Zealand’s Scott McLaughlin, who dominated the Supercars Series in Australia for three years before making a switch this season. He will be joined by former F1 driver Romain Grojean, who many of us last saw escaping a ball of flames in the 2020 Bahrain GP.
With such a strong field of drivers, the 2021 IndyCar season promises to be one of the most closely contested in recent memory. Every minute of every race will be broadcast Live in Australia, whether you enjoy watching on your TV at home or with a mobile device. All viewing options are listed below.

Must-See TV for fans of IndyCar
The IndyCar season is set to be explosive this year. Once races are over, we have suggested some other premium sports to get your teeth into.
Formula 1 (Foxtel / Kayo)
The 2021 Formula One season is now underway and this year already looks like a straight fight between Red Bull and Mercedes. With these two teams competing for both Constructors and drivers championships, is it going to be explosive on the track. Read more.
V8 Supercars (Foxtel /Kayo)
The Repco Supercars Championship 2021 is now underway with a new champion guaranteed come the end of the season. There will be a total of 12 races across the year, with the final stop coming at Surfers Paradise in December. Read more.
MotoGP (Foxtel / Kayo)

Best devices for watching IndyCar Series
For years, Apple TV devices have been an ideal instant streaming solution that does it all. There are two models available – Apple TV HD handles video up to 1080p, while Apple TV 4K adds full support for 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision. Kayo Sports is great on Apple TV, with flawless 4-way Split View.
A hugely popular low-cost streaming solution, Google’s Chromecast got a make-over in 2020, and now comes in two very different flavours. The basic Chromecast is still available, but the newer Google TV version (which replaces the Ultra) adds a remote control and an on-screen interface.
Foxtel Now Box
Foxtel’s own streaming box is an Android TV device that brings the Foxtel Now experience front and centre in its user interface – making it a natural choice if your preferred way of streaming sports is via the live channels that Foxtel Now offers, with on-demand streaming and live free-to-air channels as well.
Amazon Fire TV Stick
This easy alternative comes in three flavours – a budget Lite model, the standard one, and a 4K version. All of them are simple “plug in and go” stick-shaped devices that work similarly to Google’s newest Chromecast, except these use Amazon’s custom user interface and support Alexa voice control.
Nvidia Shield TV
A powerful Android TV streaming device from one of the world’s leading PC graphics companies comes in the form of a small “tube” with connections at either end, along with a slim backlit remote control. It can easily deal with every streaming app under the sun, including Kayo and Foxtel.
