Covering Sonoma

Posted on: August 21, 2010 | Comments(4) | New Media, Race Tracks | By: Daniel

Infineon Raceway is a beautiful track in Sonoma, California with elevation changes and yellow hills surrounding the track. The mornings are overcast before giving way to bright, bright sun later in the day. It’s a great venue for fans, it’s also not too bad if you’re shooing video or images.

You may have noticed that we publish a lot of content throughout the race weekend – via Tweets, Facebook updates, countless IndyCar.com changes and news stories, live video and timing and scoring through Race Control, and images to Flickr, video to YouTube, and RSS feeds for each driver and team. It’s a content juggling act.

Most of you do – and we’re really thankful for that. One thing I’ve noticed about IndyCar fans is that they’re passionate, vocal, knowledgeable and hungry for good online content. We’re trying to do a much better job with the online experience we offer.

There’s a section on the IndyCar website called Follow Us. Not sure if you’ve seen it or not. It’s a listing of all things digital. Intrigued? Check it.

It covers all the basics. You’ve watched our videos on YouTube. You’re likely a fan or ‘liker’ on Facebook. And hopefully you’ve participated in some of our contests through Twitter.

We’ve pushed really hard on Flickr this season, to give you behind-the-scenes access to all of the IZOD IndyCar Series races and events. Here’s one of my favorites.

[ADMIN NOTE: A couple of weeks ago, prior to the race in Kansas, we solicited questions from our fans on Facebook for an interview we were preparing with Indy Racing League CEO, Randy Bernard. We received around 100 questions and from those, grabbed a handful. The following video is Randy responding to your questions. Please let us know what you think, because we plan on continuing this video series throughout the season. And, feel free to add your questions as comments in this post. Enjoy.]
