AUSTIN, Tex. (March 21, 2018) – This weekend in the Grand Prix of Texas at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA), the all-new Pirelli World Challenge App will help bring Pirelli World Challenge to racing fans worldwide on a variety of web-enabled platforms including smart phones, tablets and other WiFi and mobile-network systems.
The new PWC App is available for both iOS and Android mobile operating systems and will offer a variety of PWC content on-the-go including live-streaming of all races, live timing and scoring, news blog, highlight and archive video accessibility, official Facebook and Twitter feed tracking, fan-centered track-specific information and, coming in April, the 2018 PWC Fan Guide and Spotter’s Guide.
The Official PWC APP is free to download from Apple App Store and Google Play and will keep the avid Pirelli World Challenge fan informed with all PWC competition classes GT to TCA, sprint and SprintX.“We spent a tremendous amount of time studying the various race fan app features that would work well for the Pirelli World Challenge,” said Jim Jordan, director of marketing and communications for the Pirelli World Challenge. “We feel this new app is one of the finest in motorsports with just about anything a race fan would want to have. Plus, the availability of all the major features to fans not able to be at the track on race day make it a must-have for any GT3, GT4, or Touring Car race fan.”
The Pirelli World Challenge app is in beta-release general availability now; download the app and put it through its paces this Friday (March 23) with the live timing and scoring tracking for the opening practice session at COTA set for GTS SprintX class at 8:40 a.m. CDT. Watch the first race of the weekend through the app on Saturday (March 24) at 12:10 p.m. CDT with Round 1 of the Touring Car division queuing up first. All PWC races throughout the season will be available on the Pirelli World Challenge APP beginning this weekend at COTA and running through the series finale at Watkins Glen International set for Aug. 31 – Sept. 2.
