The Battle of the Imports announced today that it has launched a new website, BOTI.TV. in cooperation with YoParts.com. BOTI.TV will be home to live streaming broadcast coverage beginning with the Battle of the Imports presented by YoParts.com, to be held this weekend at New England Dragway located in Epping, NH.
"Being able to stream live event coverage is something we have always been interested in bringing to our fans," commented Frank Choi, Battle of the Imports. "Using metrics from our beta webcast of our season opener event (Orlando, FL) brought to us by YoParts.com coupled with the overwhelming response from users, we have added many more features than the previous single camera webcast."
"Tom Masiero, Founder, YoParts.com put together a revolutionary format on the way our events will be covered," added Choi. "YoParts' commitment to the continued growth of sport compact drag racing is exhibited not only by this collaboration but, by their commitment to our series and the racers too."
Tom Masiero added, "Our #1 priority is to help this industry grow and we feel by offering the services that we do to thousands of our wholesale club members and now the ability to connect race fans all over the world with the original founders of sport compact drag racing is a great match."
The webcast is scheduled to go LIVE this Friday, May 9th at approximately 6:00 PM EST starting with the first round of pro-class qualifying. The live webcast will continue on Saturday with gates officially opening at noon.
BOTI.TV will feature two (2) viewing channels. The "YoParts.com Race Cam" channel will feature all the action on the drag strip including a separate player displaying the announcer's screen where, fans at home will be able to witness incremental data such as reaction time, 60-ft time, 330-ft time, 660-ft time and MPH, quarter-mile E.T. and MPH previously only seen by the track announcer as well as 3 camera HD coverage of all the action on the track.
Secondly, the "BattleoftheImports.com Action Channel" will feature all of the drama and action happening off the track such as driver and team interviews, carshow action, stage activities, vendor interviews, etc.
BOTI.TV has the ability to give the viewers more than just a live webcast. Users will also be able to chat with other users real time. "We wanted to make this webcast an interactive experience," added Choi. "Fans from all over the world will be able to chat with one another from the comfort of wherever they may be."
The Battle of the Imports presented by YoParts.com will also be giving fans a chance to win a $10,000 shopping spree by purchasing a special 6-month membership package for only $10.00 at the gate. Additionally, the Battle of the Imports presented by YoParts.com will play host to a Scion VIP event where owners of more than 100 Scions will be attending a special event within the event.
In a joint collaboration with all of our marketing partners, a massive email campaign will be sent to over 500,000 sport compact enthusiasts over the next few days.
