Default LIVE Video Coverage: RA Round 5 - STPR

Driving Sports TV announces official live coverage of round 5 of the Rally America racing series.



Redmond, WA (PRWEB) June 2, 2008 -- Driving Sports today announced that it would be presenting live worldwide coverage of the 2008 Waste Management Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally presented by Citizen's and Northern Bank, Round 5 in the Rally America Championship series, scheduled for June 6th and 7th.

As part of this groundbreaking coverage, Driving Sports will present live video streams, a dynamic event blog, cell phone SMS alerts and daily action recaps through its web site www.drivingsports.com. This will be the first time a Rally America regular series round has featured such extensive live coverage. The event is a crucial step for competitors as they fight for coveted invitations to the 2008 ESPN X Games in Los Angeles.

“We are very excited to bring some of the best rally action in the world to a wider global audience,” said Driving Sports Producer, Ryan Douthit. He continued, “We’ve lined up a talented team to bring the unfiltered excitement of professional rally to new and existing fans of the series!”

Viewers will have the opportunity to watch and interact with action sports stars, Dave Mirra, Travis Pastrana, Ken Block and Andrew-Comrie Picard, as they fight against the elements and a large field of seasoned challengers – all from the comfort of their home computers or on select 3G smartphones.

“Rally America appreciates the coverage that MediaSpigot has provided over the years through its print magazines, and we're really excited about the live updates they have planned for Round 5,” said J.B. Niday, Managing Director for Rally America.

The first live broadcast from the event will commence at 9am EST on Friday, June 6, with additional live feeds and updates posted regularly throughout the day, including exclusive interviews from the service-park and tape-delayed stage action. Viewers can point their web browsers to www.drivingsports.com for more details, or text RALLY to 38714 for SMS alerts delivered to their cell phones.

Thumbs up

Been at it all morning long and "AWESOME" just doesn't cover it!!!
I think this is going well and does promise to be, probably, the only way to enjoy this sport of RALLY in a "LIVE" type of manner or so.
Thank you so much DrivinSports for the coverage. This is history in the making!!!

Did anyone hear a verdict on what happened with Pastrana and his co-driver? Rumors were flying all around the twelve mile spectator point and nobody could confirm anything.... a few days later and I still can't find anything. Awesome event to watch live - if anyone wants to come next year and needs a place to crash let me know. I'm about 45 min. from Wellsboro. I work for C&N bank which has sponsors and has logos on all the cars! I was the two toned red / flat black WRX for anyone who was paying attention!

Ringer was grazed by another car when he was deploying triangles. That caused the cross to be thrown on the course. However, it was just a bruise -- he was checked out and is fine.

We're looking at continuing live coverage at NEFR (Maine), if we go (or not) will be dependent on sponsors: It's expensive to do this coverage, even with volunteers helping out. If we do go, we now know of many things we'd do differently... that would kick coverage up a level.
