Toronto (ON), July 24, 2013 – The Canadian Touring Car Championship presented by Continental Tire is proud to launch its new and unique smartphone application. Available immediately on the most popular platforms (Android, IoS, Blackberry Q10 & Z10), this new App will allow fans to follow all CTCC on-track activities from wherever they are in the world.
CTCC has partnered with QuickSeries Mobile to develop an application that is fan oriented. “Since we wanted to create a way to engage with our fans even more than existing social media, our technology partner put tremendous effort into making this a unique application”, shared John Bondar, President of CTCC. “When we started to talk about this project with the engineers at QuickSeries, we were driven by what our fans would like to see in such an App. We just put ourselves in their shoes and many months later we were field-testing the first version. Today we are very proud to launch the CTCC App, just in time for our next event this weekend at Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant,” concludes Bondar.
Unique features: The CTCC App will allow fans to follow their favorite drivers or teams more closely than ever. Fans will be able to stay current with News, review the season Schedule and explore a map of each race tracks where CTCC will be competing. Detailed information about each Driver will be easy to access, including points Standings and current statistics. But what makes this App unique are the two additional features that are also available. Each time CTCC will be on the race track, fans can follow the race with the Live Racing feature. This unique feature presents real time on track activity and displays each car in its actual position – speed, gap between cars, leader or follower are amongst the information displayed on the screen. In addition, shortly after the race is over, Replays are available to the fans to watch the race over and over again.
Download the CTCC App and where ever you are, follow us at Circuit Mont-Tremblant for Rounds 7 & 8!
