“This is an exciting step for our sport,” said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. “The ability to live stream our events will help us reach a crucial demographic and provide coverage of the sport globally. Our staff has worked long and hard on this system and we are proud to be able to provide live streaming for the fans this season.”
Initially, AMA Pro Live’s implementation at AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles events will consist of two video channels alongside live timing and scoring and social media feeds, providing complete coverage from the first practice until the final checkered flag. The first channel will feature a camera mounted in the P.A. booth overlooking all of the action, and will include an audio feed of Scottie Deubler and Barry Boone providing play-by-play analysis of the racing. The second camera will be located trackside near the start-finish line, giving fans a close-up view of the day’s racing activity and allowing them to hear the thunder of the motorcycles as they roar around the track. Additional channels are planned for future events, including a roaming camera in the pits and on-board cameras mounted on the motorcycles.
AMA Pro Live will be live streaming content from all rounds on the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles schedule. For those that can’t make it to the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, Calif. for this weekend’s Stockton Half-Mile, this link – http://www.amaprolive.com – will grant them direct access to AMA Pro Live and allow them to follow along as the event unfolds.
