You may have noticed on our IndyCar.com, through Facebook or on Twitter that we’re being pretty active on Flickr.com this year. For those of you not familiar with Flickr, it’s a photo sharing site with a devoted community of professional photographers and people that just like to snap away. This site allows us to upload unlimited images (and video under 90 seconds) and add metadata, like titles, descriptions, tags even geo-location. It’s another arena online for us to share the IndyCar experience and get to know our online fans. We’ve taken a diverse approach in 2010 by offering pics of drivers, teams, cars, fans, tracks, food, celebs, you name it. We want everyone to know what a great experience attending a race can be.
Just like this blog, we would love to know what you want to see on Flickr. If you have specific suggestions for the types of images you want to view from each event, we would like to know – we’ll grab them for you. And if you haven’t seen any of the images yet, you can view all of them here.
While you think about it, I thought I would share some of my favorite pics from the first 3 events of 2010. BTW, we’re averaging about 200 image uploads per race event.
Those are just a few images from the early part of the season. Have any ideas for photo opps at our races? Leave a comment and we’ll take care of it. Thanks!
