INDIANAPOLIS, IN (December 3, 2002) -- As the broadcast premiere of the CART Stars of Tomorrow Grand National kart race on SPEED Channel nears, racing aficionados can tell their friends via email about the one hour show of speed and karting lifestyle that debuts Friday, December 6 on the popular motorsports network.
"We know there are many kart racers who thirst to see their sport on television," said Stars Director of Marketing and Communications Glenn Holland. "We also know there are many, many more race fans who have never been exposed to this exciting sport. We want to give those people a chance to see what kart racing is all about, and our email link on the cartstars.com website can help get the message to people who may not know about the program."
For those that wish to tell their friends and family about the broadcast, web users can go to www.cartstars.com and find the "Tell a Friend" section on the right side of the page. There the user can put in a friend's email address and their (the user's) name. The system will send an email from that user's system to the destination. No information is kept or tracked with this facility by the website.
Holland concludes, "Word of mouth is a powerful way to find out about something exciting, and we are confident many people who may not even be racing fans will find the Stars TV program entertaining. This email system makes it just that much easier to get the word out."
The Stars of Tomorrow Grand Nationals presented by Snap-on.com will broadcast Friday, December 6 at 7:00pm Eastern Time and 12 midnight Eastern Time (9:00 pm Pacific Time). There are also several follow-up broadcasts scheduled.
The CART 'Stars of Tomorrow' karting series is the official first level in CART's driver development system. Owned by a group of racing veterans, including three-time CART champion and Indy 500 winner Bobby Rahal, the Stars of Tomorrow serves as the first step for the CART driver development ladder. Stars focuses on recognizing the skills of the drivers rather than the technology development within the machines, using FIA/CIK international standards.
