REVAMPED RACELINE UP AND RUNNING ON WWW.TVSHOWCASTER.COM
by Dave Westerman
Florida race fans can start getting their racing "fix" anytime they wish thanks to TV Showcasters newly revamped "RaceLine" page.
Videos of various races at many of the Florida short tracks will be featured along with other automobile-related video such as the Concourse de' Elegance Car Show at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes.
Although the site is still under construction, fans can already view racing action taped at Auburndale Speedway and East Bay Raceway along with Video from the Vintage Race Car meet last February in Zephyrhills at Festival Park sponsored by the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association.
TV Showcaster hopes to build a working relationship with all of the short tracks in Florida in order to let fans not only know about those tracks, but be able to see what the racing is like there as well.
"We hope to get out to several other venues before the end of the year and tape some events that fans can enjoy during the off season," says Dean Baker, who heads up TV Showcaster from the offices of his Orlando-based business Post FX Digital Video.
Baker goes on to say, "It all depends on sponsorship. We have some nice sponsorship packages available to anyone interested in becoming a part of the RaceLine effort. We know the economy is still struggling, so we will be giving interested parties looking to partner with us a chance to get involved no matter how much they have available to spend."
Access to the site is totally free. "We are not going to charge anyone to watch RaceLine," says Baker. "We hope that our advertising partners will help in covering the cost of travel and hiring video crews to tape events. We also hope our advertisers and the tracks we promote will offer some discounts or special "deals" to race fans who see them on RaceLine," he says.
The goal of RaceLine on TV showcaster is to promote racing and other automotive-related events in Florida. TV Showcaster is interested promoting all forms of motorsport including Drag Racing, Motorcycle Racing etc. and are looking for tracks interested in being promoted on the site.
"This is a win-win situation for the tracks," says Baker. "We are not asking anything from the tracks other than access to their events and permission to show them on RaceLine. There's not a better way for tracks to get exposure than to actually have some of their events professionally videotaped and available for people to watch." he says.
To get a taste of RaceLine log on to www.tvshowcaster.com/race/internet_tv_race.htm and enjoy the action already available at your leisure.
