    What is happening with RPM TV, when will we see it again?

      Hi Matthew – we are currently off air pending new sponsorship agreements, and are unlikely to return to SuperSport until next year. In the mean time, we are posting two new inserts weekly on our website and our dedicated RPM TV YouTube channel, both of which are free to access. Thanks for you support.
