Cameras will be set up under JD Beach’s (above) team tent and one may even be mounted to his bike during the race.
AMA Pro Racing is bringing a whole new and advanced way to watch this weekend’s AMA Pro Flat Track event at Castle Rock Race Park in Castle Rock, Wash. with the expansion of the AMA Pro Live beta test. Live streaming from multiple locations will put fans in the director’s chair, allowing them to watch the race through several different vantage points as the event unfolds for the AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Lucas Oil and Motorcycle-Superstore.com.
The all-new AMA Pro Live streaming video system, designed in-house to complement Live Timing & Scoring, is a free online service located at www.amaprolive.com which gives fans insider access to the stars of the sport through up-and-coming technological advancements. AMA Pro Racing, working in conjunction with GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing promoter M1 PowerSports and team RoadRace Factory/Red Bull, is developing this system in order to bring the excitement of AMA Pro events to fans around the world.
“This is an awesome step for AMA Pro Flat Track,” said Danny Walker, team principal of RoadRace Factory/Red Bull and former AMA Pro racer. “You never get dirt track racing out of your soul, it just becomes a part of you. The coolest thing about AMA Pro Flat Track is how tough the riders are, and on T.V. you don’t get a chance to see that. Now with AMA Pro Live, you’ll get to see the heart and soul of these guys and girls, and that is what AMA Pro Flat Track is, the heart and soul of American motorcycle racing.”
Three channels will be available throughout the day on Saturday, August 4. The first camera will be located on top of the press box and will give a bird’s eye view of the live action and PA feed as the race unfolds. The second camera will be mounted under the tent of AMA Pro star J.D. Beach’s team, giving fans a perspective of the intensity and tenacity that it takes to run a successful race. The third camera is still in development, but fans will likely have the opportunity to watch the race unfold from an onboard camera mounted on the back of talented J.D. Beach’s Kawasaki.
Another way to keep the fans up to date, users can click on the Twitter tab to display the AMA Pro Live Twitter feed. Social media, live timing and the all-new streaming video system will be available throughout the duration of the event, including everything from heat one to the final Main Events for the veterans of AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship presented by Lucas Oil and Motorcycle-Superstore.com and the rising stars of the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com Pro Singles division.
