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.

The new IndyCar web site launched just over a month ago with a new focus on the fan. The site features better integration of video content, a focus on the social experience (such as Twitter), a rich selection of images through the site and Flickr page, the incorporation of nomee cards and much more. We’re also working behind-the-scenes to bring you more innovative web content. We love the IndyCar series and think you should too. IndyCar is becoming more active online, determined to connect with our fans in new ways. Here’s a picture from the 2010 opener in Brazil, from Flickr user Crystian Cruz.[More]
