Moto West Grand Prix is thrilled to announce a partnership with Ignite Media Productions to provide live Internet streaming of the MWGP races on Sunday, August 10th, from Buttonwillow Raceway Park in California. Fans can watch the action on their computers, laptops, smartphones or tablets via the "live­ streaming" tab on Ignite Media's website found at WWW.IGNITEMEDIA.TV. Live stream footage of MWGP races will consist of multiple camera angles, commentary, and on board footage for selected races.

“Innovative coverage and media promotions are critical to the growth of our sport,” says Niccole Cox, Operations for MWGP. “The ability to offer live footage of our races to the public is a huge step forward in promoting club level racing and gaining support and recognition for the club, our racers, and our sponsors. The owners of Ignite Media Productions are racers themselves, and their passion for racing and growing the sport lead to this decision to test the technology in 2014 to gauge the viability for our 2015 season.”

“We are always looking for ways to get more coverage for our sponsors and racers, and we are excited to test the technology and offer a new and exciting product for our club,” says Greg Nulman, CEO and president of MWGP. “MWGP would like to extend a huge thank you to all our current and continuing sponsors for helping MWGP take club racing to the next level.”

“Racers are constantly working to gain additional support, and the ability to deliver live video coverage of the event can open up a whole new level of advertising that will benefit our racers, their sponsors, and MWGP sponsors. MWGP wants to get more people excited about road racing in the U.S. we have high hopes for our testing event at Buttonwillow in August.”
