A new karting website (www.KartRacingNetwork.com) dedicated to live internet video of world’s premier events launches with the Live Broadcast of 2011 Rotax Max Challenge United States Grand Nationals presented by Ocala Gran Prix.
Kart Racing Network (KRN) kicks off its premier weekend with the first-ever live streaming video broadcast of the Rotax Max Challenge United States Grand Nationals presented by Ocala Gran Prix, from Miller Motorsports Park on July 21-23, 2011. This innovative new website is devoted to bringing many of the world’s premier karting events to a live internet audience. Internationally renowned commentator Ken Walker, “the voice of Rotax”, will host the broadcast when KRN goes live on Thursday morning, July 21.
Kart Racing Network is an innovation from the same technical specialists who revolutionized Live Streaming Video in the sport of karting. KRN personnel have pioneered an unmatched combination of live video, audience interactivity, “video marshalling” and live timing/scoring that has become associated with Rotax Blue Ribbon events.
Garry Lobaugh of MAXSpeed Group, who promotes the RMC U.S. Grand Nationals, expressed his enthusiasm for the broadcast. “This is a two fold opportunity brought to our program by the people at Kart Racing Network. First, we have a quality video product for our 200 drivers, their families, sponsors and fans as well as Rotax advocates all over the world who have never experienced a live feed of the event and the crowning of our national champions. Furthermore, our valued sponsors will see an additional return on their investment, both during and long after the event has wrapped up.”
“Second, the ability to utilize the video camera marshalling service, combined with our top notch track officials headed by Nigel Edwards, addresses the number one complaint of last year’s event - ‘better officiating is needed.’ Racers, teams and families invest too much time, effort and money to see their race end at the first corner. It is our goal to attract the top competitors to events that provide the best racing and therefore we must provide the highest possible level of officiating and will continue to strive towards this goal.”
Michael Wright, KRN’s Technical Producer, was equally enthused. “It’s a privilege to coincide the launch of Kart Racing Network with this inaugural live broadcast of the RMC U.S. Grand Nationals. In terms of diversity, this is one the premier karting events in the United States, and we’re thrilled to bring live coverage of all the action to anyone, anywhere in the world, with a broadband internet connection. We thank everyone at MAXSpeed Group, along with presenting sponsor Ocala Gran Prix, and event sponsors DeFrancesco Racing, RDD Motorsports and Keane Racing with Homestead Karting, for their support in bringing this broadcast to fruition.”
“We’re introducing several new broadcast features, which include Twitter and Facebook enhancements to our existing audience interactive platform. And for the first time ever, a live streaming kart event shall be available on a wide range of mobile devices, including iPads and iPhones. We have several other innovations coming down the pipeline, and we’re also announcing more event broadcasts in the very near future. Needless to say, it’s a very exciting time for KRN.”
