Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy Launches App For Some Mobile Devices

DiSalvo Speed Academy Debuts Mobile App

iPhone App Features Interactive Maps and Onboard Videos

Cleveland, OH Daytona 200 winner Jason DiSalvo and his DiSalvo Speed Academy have developed a new mobile app with HiQo Solutions that helps riders of all skill levels improve their performance at some of America's top race tracks. It's the ultimate information resource for track day riding as well as club and professional road racing.

There are nine initial track maps with tips and tricks that professional racers use to navigate every turn. Onboard videos give unparalleled vantage points, and "track talk" video shorts with Speed Academy founders DiSalvo and Brian Stokes give insider tips that help enhance the track riding experience.

"We developed the new Speed Academy app to meet the needs of riders whether they're going to their first track day or are a professional racer," said DiSalvo. "I'll be using the Notes part of the app to prepare for and compete in this year's AMA Pro Road Racing Daytona SportBike Series, just like track day riders and club racers can use it to improve their riding ability and lower their lap times."

The free app's features Include:

· Interactive track map with hotspots detailing tips for each track section.

· Onboard videos of each track showing first person video, third person video or both.

· Track talk videos featuring Speed Academy founders Jason DiSalvo and Brian Stokes.

· Additional Speed Academy videos section to view all the content Speed Academy offers.

· "My Notes" feature to record your own notes and insert them directly into each track's main page for reference.

· Weather forecast for each track.

· Speed Academy events list for each venue.

· Track contact and location information.

· GPS notification to remind you to access Tracks App info upon arrival.

"Whether you're preparing for a new track or reviewing your own information for a track that you already know, the DiSalvo Speed Academy app puts an extraordinary amount of knowledge at your fingertips. Your notes, on-board videos, and valuable cues from Jason and Brian make this an invaluable app for any club racer or track day rider," said Martin Mauersberg, CEO of HiQo Solutions. "As a club racer myself, I wish I had this app years ago."

The initial nine tracks on the app are Alabama's Barber Motorsports Park and Talladega Gran Prix Raceway, Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway and Jennings GP, Michigan's Gingerman Raceway and Grattan Raceway (clockwise and counter-clockwise), Georgia's Road Atlanta, and Louisiana's NOLA Motorsports Park. The app will be updated to include additional tracks and the "track talk" videos.

The free Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy iPhone app can be downloaded through the Apple App Store and also can be used on iPads.

The Jason DiSalvo Speed Academy ( combines classroom activities and on-track sessions to teach the same techniques professional road racers use to become smarter, faster and safer riders. Sessions are designed to improve each rider's knowledge and awareness of bike setup, how to give feedback to trained Öhlins technicians after on-track sessions, and translate that feedback into suspension settings that deliver faster lap times with more confidence.
