The excitement level continues to build here in Las Vegas, as all the teams have moved in and kart prep is wrapping up. We’re on-track with the first rounds of practice in the morning and everyone is anxious to get things rolling.
In regards to coverage, we’ll be providing straight audio this year, but Tom Kutscher and I spoke today and EKN will be producing a live video broadcast in 2014 to add that component to the event. The lack of video obviously doesn’t effect attendance, as SKUSA will top 600 drivers to set a new record. And that’s 600 drivers, not 600 ‘entries’. It’s crazy.
We’ll work diligently over the off-season to find the commercial sponsorship to make sure that the live video is a straight expense. It will be our first foray into video, and we’re looking forward to it.
