  • Gratuitous TrackSide Online 2008 Plug

    Chances are if you are posting here or reading this forum, you at least have heard of TrackSide Online - www.tracksideonline.com

    We have enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the folks at TrackForum and really have let our subscribers and fans do the talking for us these last few years. The love-fests usually show up once every month or so which is great to see as word-of-mouth advertising has always been our strongest way to reach new people. Not to mention the reviews are typically pretty great for the ego.

    In light of the new era of IndyCar Racing though, we thought it might be time to run up a thread just to let some of the many new folks here at TF know what we are all about.

    TrackSide Online is an internet news outlet that provides text updates and photos live from every official open test and every race on the IndyCar and Indy Pro Series schedules. TSO has not missed a practice, a qualifying session or a race in nearly ten years. Yes that includes all pre-season testing, every Motegi event, each and every day the Speedway is open in May and much, much more. The only other media outlet to match our attendance record is the IndyCar PR staff. Newspapers, local television, internet, magazines, national racing shows and networks - not one can match TSO's commitment to covering the Series for our subscribers on-site.

    What do we do? We provide timely and pertinent news, trivia, rumors and more through our e-mailed updates which are also available on the website alongside photos from every day of every event. Nearly every team in the paddock has someone that is subscribed to TSO as well as a vast number of officials, media members, drivers and more. It isn't infrequent to have someone walk over to one of us on pit road, pull their Blackberry out and ask us about something we just sent!

    Our photo albums offer considerable variety and focus on the stories of the day thanks mostly to our primary photographer Kim who does an amazing job considering she is a one person force at most races.

    Audio content has been something we have been building as well including a weekly podcast the last few years and now a weekly radio show on Race Fan Radio.

    We look forward to seeing some new people on board this season as many new and old fans make their way to the IndyCar Series. TSO will be here to cover the Indy Racing League for the old fans as well as the new so we hope you'll consider signing up! Cost is just $19 for a full twelve month subscription - less than a $1/event!

    Thanks!!!

        TSO_Thumbs UP!

        They work very hard to get the lastest info at and away from the track. Great value too.

          Any update on when the next podcast will be?

          You mentioned in the first one of the year (back when Cotman to the IRL seemed like big news!) that you'd do one fortnightly and there's been nothing since.

          It's not as if there hasn't been anything to talk about this past couple of months...!

            I've got a question about the photos...does TSO format them in desktop background format (800 x 600, 1024 x 768, etc). I am always looking for new photos to add as my desktop, and it would be a huge plus if the pictures were in a format that would work as my background. Thanks.

              They do a great job and that is why I keep reupping my subscription.
              It's a 2.5 mile oval of asphalt-covered bricks, used just three times a year. Yet it hascome to be the worldwide symbol of auto racing. More than that, it is our city's beacon to the entire globe, the main reason everyone knows there is an Indianapolis somewhere in the vast interior of America.

                          I was skeptical for quite some time but finally took the plunge a little over a year ago. I just re-upped last month. TSO does an outstanding job.

                          BTW, not all of us use Blackberry's-Treo's are used too!!!

                            The TSO folks are tops!

                            ...in addition to their "main" business, they are very supportive our our fundraising efforts at Camp and Brew for Brian's Wish. Make sure you stop by and pick up one of the cups that they so generously provide for our frothy beverages on Indy weekend.

                              Hmm, I think the size that the photos are automatically set too is smaller than 800 x 600. I like the idea though and will bring it up with our tech guru Joe. Maybe we can do select images each week or so in that format if we can't do the whole album that way?? Thanks for the idea!
