Racing Promotion Monthly (RPM) and SPEED SPORT Partners to Live Stream Promoters Workshops, Develop Video Archiv
Racing Promotion Monthly (Newsletter and Workshops) and SPEED SPORT, America’s trusted motorsports authority since 1934, have partnered to “stream” and develop a video archive for the RPM Workshops, beginning with the 49th Annual RPM@Daytona Workshops, Monday, February 14 and Tuesday, February 15 at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach, Florida.
As the industry has evolved, it has become increasingly apparent that creating new ways to engage with busy promoters and motorsports market professionals was imperative.
SPEED SPORT TV, a subsidiary of SPEED SPORT, has been working closely with RPM owner Joe Skotnicki for over a year to develop a strategy to implement live streaming of the twice-yearly workshops’ key sessions. These live streams will be available to all current RPM participants, and will be accessible by subscription at www.RPMWorkshops.tv.
“This is a landmark event for the workshops,” Skotnicki said. “The RPM Workshops are a pillar in our industry, however as we continue to evolve, we have an obligation to the industry to provide the workshops in all platforms for maximum outreach. Working in unison with SPEED SPORT to produce this gives the entire industry an opportunity to see the workshops if they are unable to attend what is truly a can’t-miss event.”
In addition to the LIVE streaming workshop broadcasts, RPM will build an archive of other workshop sessions that will be available on-demand on its video website. These videos and additional promoter-focused RPM content will be available for a reasonable subscription price — making it easy for promoters who cannot attend the RPM workshops to gain access to the informative lineup of speakers and topics that the event always delivers.
“We’re honored to be able to step in and help develop the RPM Workshops video platform,” said Joe Tripp, co-founder and CEO of SPEED SPORT. “RPM is a critical ‘continuing-education’ resource for promoters — and with two workshops a year, it’s pretty easy to get to at least one of them. And while there’s no replacement for in-person interaction and bench racing, the new streaming and VOD service will deliver the best of RPM right to the promoter, even if they can’t attend a workshop.”
