MWGP racers head to Buttonwillow Raceway Park August 9th and 10th
for the second and final time this season.
Round 6 includes some
very exciting news! Buttonwillow received a fresh surface, and the reviews
from racers indicate the
surface is much smoother, has great traction and more visible curbing!
MWGP racers will have the first shot at new lap records on the
improved surface as MWGP is the first organization to conduct a race
after the repave.
MWGP has also partnered with Ignite Media Productions to provide
dynamic live stream video coverage! We are testing the quality and
viewer response to determine viability for next year. All races on
Sunday will be broadcast live. MWGP will feature four on-track cameras, three on-board cameras, live commentary--coupled
with available live timing feeds. MWGP and Ignite Media Productions aims
to provide professional, entertaining and innovative video coverage.
The video will be in standard definition, with
plans to move to high definition next year. The live stream is 100%
mobile-device friendly and viewable on your phone, tablet or laptop.
All class sponsors will see their logo displayed on their sponsored
race and have the ability to submit a paragraph about their business and
services to be read by our live commentator. Additionally, we are still
working to allow the sponsors to have custom
banner ads viewable alongside the live stream footage. MWGP is also
asking all racers to log on and update their sponsor lists on TrackIntel
so this information can be available to our commentator.
What does this mean to our racers? It means more class sponsorship,
potentially more tire contingency, and more opportunities for you to
give your current and future sponsors the advertising they need to
invest in your racing program! Please take a moment
to listen to our interview with 2 Wheel Podcast. All media, press
releases and the final link to the live stream will be posted here
http://motowestgp.com/mwgp-live-feed-aug-910/ If all our racers share
the feed with their friends, family and fans we will
have a much better chance to bring the live feed back for 2015!
