The magic of motorsports and automotive performance will be in full effect as Speedvideo.com becomes a go ­to destination for the best automotive enthusiast video content, originally produced, on­-demand, curated, or live stream.

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 10.22.25 AMPower Automedia is pleased to announce plans to launch Speedvideo.com in the third quarter of 2016. The website’s cornerstone will be live stream automotive programming, with a focus on producing live racing events in year one. Video content shall be distributed through Power Automedia’s network of 12 automotive magazines, which reach more than 2.1 million monthly viewers, as well as through Speedvideo.com’s video ­specific user interface.

“We believe in the magic of the automobile, and we believe the next step in immersing ourselves and our readers in that passion is by delivering live video of many of the industry’s top automotive events,” explained James Lawrence, CEO of Power Automedia. “We want to bring our viewers a dynamic automotive live event experience for events they can’t watch on network television. Plus, our editorial team will be on­site at these events,  adding photo galleries, race results, and news as the events unfold. This is the content our readers love.”

Live streaming coverage will soft­-launch March 11-12 with the $50,000 No Prep Bounty Hunters Drag Racing Event in San Antonio, Texas. The races will be broadcast on Dragzine.com with a three-camera production utilizing live stream technology. The event will star infamous drag racing personalities such as BoostedGT, Larry Larson, and James “Birman” Finney, and will feature the return of Mike Murillo’s LaFawnduh Mustang competing for $50,000 to win the ‘Big Tire’ class.

Speedvideo.com will also feature original programming, including on-­demand coverage of automotive events, tech and how-­to videos, annual SEMA and PRI trade shows, car features, car shows, and other unique automotive content. In addition, Speedvideo.com will curate some of the best on-­demand and live­ stream video content from around the Internet.
