TOPEKA, Kan. (Oct. 6, 2007) – The 44th Annual SCCA National Championship Runoffs Presented by AT&T is scheduled to begin with qualifying Monday morning, Oct. 8 at 8 a.m. (CDT). This year, SCCA will offer more online services than ever before, giving people not able to attend the event the opportunity to follow the proceedings as they transpire.
In addition to a re-vamped Live Timing & Scoring system, fans can also follow the races via live audio Web cast Friday through Sunday, hearing the call directly from announcers Ed Conway and John Fippin.
Live Timing & Scoring will be available all week, beginning with the first qualifying session on Monday. New for 2007 will be the ability to see the cumulative times throughout the week. Viewers will have the option of watching the order sorted by the current session or by the combined sessions, including historic data from previous days. As was the case in 2006, SCCA will provide live lap notes via the SCCA Pit Board on race days, Friday through Sunday.
The live audio broadcast will be available throughout the week as well, although the announcers will not be on site until the races begin on Friday, Oct. 12.
