Alexander Rossi looks back at '14 and ahead to '15
Alexander Rossi could be IndyCar bound in 2015 With the holidays and New Year fast approaching, I find myself busy preparing for a 2015 race program. This is also a good time to reflect on 2014 and it's important for me to share my journey and my appreciation towards all of you. This year has been an invaluable chapter in my racing career, as my pursuit of an F1 seat continued. Most years of a racecar driver's career are important and memorable; however, this one had some extraordinary peaks and valleys filled with success, tragedy, new relationships, opportunities, missed opportunities, heartache and disappointment, but most of all, gratitude.
Say Goodbye to 2014. Motor racing's future is upon us
by Brian C. Mackey For the past several years, I've been one of many preaching about changes needed to revive motor racing's sagging popularity. Unlike others however, I have stressed that the changes needed won't solely come from the more routine solutions that periodically arise from various sources. Instead, the real changes of noteworthy distinction will be represented by the relevant use of now emerging technology. As a marketer, I believe that motor racing's revitalization will rise from the doldrums through the fan's experience at a race event, my "events begets fans" philosophy more than any other single modification.
by Brian Carroccio Did they actually pay for such advice? That was my first thought 22 or so months ago after reading ideas of daredevil drivers and a 5 month IndyCar season in the leaked Boston Consulting Group internal review of INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway 22 months ago. Well, they paid for it alright. Fast forward to December 15, 2014, with more than 100 days of the demented horror show concocted by the BCG and carried out by Hulman &Co. CEO Mark Miles behind us, it seems that they’re going to be paying for it at the corner of 16th and Georgetown for quite a while.
by Brian Carroccio Following a championship season in Pro Mazda, it was announced last month that Spencer Pigot would be contesting the 2015 Indy Lights Championship Presented by Cooper Tires. Recently, AR1's Brian Carroccio caught up with the 21-year-old Orlando native. Amongst the topics covered were Pigot's journey up the American open wheel racing ladder, his 'do or die' weekend this past August in Sonoma and the goals going forward for one of the sport's more promising up and coming homegrown talents.
by Brian C. Mackey There is a mighty war going on. And most of us don't actually get to see it. I'm not nearly expert enough to determine exactly what the entire battleground looks like, how technologically advanced, or how robust the combat, but I do know that motorsports is one big cog caught in the middle of it. It is a war that is being fought on the front lines of marketing. I call it the war between mass media and the new digital age of targeted media. Or more generally, it is a war between mass media vs. digital media with motorsports promotion jockeying in a no-man's land somewhere between the two.
IndyCar CEO talks about '15 IndyCar sked and beyond
Q and A with Mark Miles and Will Power Welcome to today's IndyCar conference call. Earlier today the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule was released and features many highlights, including 17 race events, two new race venues, a total of six ABC and 13 NBC SN event broadcasts. The diverse calendar of events, which features six ovals, six road courses, and four temporary street circuits, includes a total of 13 markets making a return to the calendar for 2015.
INDY INDYCAR announced the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule today featuring 17 race events, two new race venues and a total of six ABC and 13 NBCSN event broadcasts. The diverse calendar of events - which features six ovals, six road courses and four temporary street circuits - includes a total of 13 markets making a return to the calendar from 2014. "The Verizon IndyCar Series calendar represents another step forward in our strategy to grow the series," said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Co., the parent of INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
by Brian C. Mackey It's that time of year again. You know, the changing fall colors, the cooling air, pumpkins and most of all, we're deep in the sponsor hunting season of the fourth quarter. In reality, the search for sponsors is all year long, but this time of year is reserved for the most concentrated effort. But just like the seasons seem to be a little out of kilter, in recent years so has the sponsorship story. I used to think motorsports was at a crossroads. I don't think that way anymore.
by Brian Carroccio As you probably know, today is the three-year anniversary of Dan Wheldon's death. This, is an updated version of an article written by Brian Carroccio, which appeared on AutoRacing1, a few days after Wheldon's passing. It's been nearly 72 hours since INDYCAR CEO Randy Bernard announced the death of Dan Wheldon. Wheldon's car, of course, became airborne during Sunday's series finale at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during a horrific 15-car pileup. Gruesomely, the 2005 series champion and two time Indianapolis 500 winner hit the catch fence cockpit first, and likely died soon thereafter.
Planning and Construction Underway for Two-Car IndyCar Team With the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series completed, the concentration now for the newly-merged CFH Racing operation is the blending of the Ed Carpenter Racing squad with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing. That process is underway at the state-of-the-art 40,000 square-foot team headquarters (at 1255 Main St. in Speedway).
by Brian Carroccio It's been five weeks since the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series finale at Auto Club Speedway. And the way things look now, it will be another five months until the series returns to action next March in Brasilia. For today, AutoRacing1 will take a look back in recalling some of the highs and lows, the best and worst, with our 2014 IndyCar Year in Review. Enjoy!
