View Full Version : ANNOUNCEMENT: TCH will be debuting a TRUE Live Reporting from Lee USA

04-19-2008, 11:14 AM
On Sunday, Lee USA will hold the first TVMRS race of 2008.
The Chrome Horn will be covering this race, and many select races of touring modifieds for 2008, LIVE AND IN REAL TIME.
This will not be a forum live update with refreshing involved but a true live, as it happens update. J.A. Ackley will be providing the reporting with members and non-members welcome to tune in.
The Live Update will be active about 1:45pm Sunday, 4/20/08.

Lee USA, TVMRS Live Report Page (http://thechromehorn.com/news/2008/features/liveupdate/042008liveleetvmrs.htm)

All you have to do is be on this page and it will update itself as it happens. When JA logs in, the window will be active and that's all there is to it!! As he posts, it shows immediately, so it can't get any closer to being there in realtime than this!!!
We will be live for qualifying, then on hold till the consi, then on hold till the feature event.
For more info on how this works, go to "Reader Information (http://www.coveritlive.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=63)" on the report page window.

We hope you all enjoy this type of reporting and your comments after the show will be glady accepted in the forum and effect how many and what races we will plan to cover, which will be as many as we possibly can handle throughout all the modified touring series'. We want to mix it up this year, with the possiblity of all races having coverage next year...

Weather looking good for today's TVMRS event at Lee USA.
Please check here (http://thechromehorn.com/news/2008/features/liveupdate/042008liveleetvmrs.htm) approx. 1:45pm for "The Live Race Report" from JA Ackley.

The weather is excellent here, not too hot, not too cold, and plenty of racing action. There's already a good crowd forming here.

27 Modifieds are in the pits with 50 late models for ACT. Depending on how the ACT heats go, we should start around 1:45PM for the start of the heats.:)

04-20-2008, 01:46 PM
Remember, no need to refresh. When JA logs in, it will automatically become active.
They are on the 3rd Late Model heat and JA is trying to find the sweet spot for Time Trials.

We are now on live with heats....

I like it. Real easy to follow, audio to let you know when to stop watching TV and read the update. JA's ability to type and keep up far surpasses my typing ability. :applause: Good job, Thanks JA!!

I loved it, I thought at first that Teddy was backing off and cooling off the rubber, but lost too much ground and too many cautions, maybe tire pressure?. Anyone have word what happened? He seemed to fall like a rock.

Awesome! I wish I was around today so i could follow live,but the fact that I could still open it now and read the entire report start to finish was amazing. It was like following a race in fast forward. Great job! I also can't wait until Stafford!
