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.

Factory Five Cobra Jet Challenge Car Rendering

For the first time since its founding 10 years ago, Power Automedia entered a project car in the prestigious SEMA Show. The build is one of the most ambitious, baddest street cars our team of builders, visionaries, and in-house professionals have ever envisioned.

FFR Cobra Challenge Car_Garage build 3Built almost entirely in a home garage using basic tools, the Factory Five Cobra Jet Challenge Car made its debut at SEMA in Las Vegas in December 2015.

As a featured automobile in the SEMA Battle of the Builders competition, the Challenge Car is constructed of raw billet and carbon fiber with a satin luster, which gives it a rugged, yet sleek and modern appearance without losing the distinctive profile these roadsters are known for.

“This is a true, two-car home garage build that has only been worked on after hours and on the weekends in the last year,” said Mark Gearhart, builder. “We finished it up in our Power Automedia Tech Center due to the SEMA time constraints, and to perform final tests on our in-house Dynojet.”

FFR Cobra Challenge_Cage Toyo TiresThe basis of the project is a proven Factory Five MK4 Challenge series car with the optional Street Completion package (which consists of a second seat, carpet, and a windshield) that adds to its road-worthiness. The Challenge kit differentiates itself from the standard Roadster kit due to its fully integrated, NASA legal cage, a robust halo bar, and fully integrated door bars. A Factory Five standard three-link rear suspension and tubular front suspension are a few of the additional items that are included with the kit.

2015-11-05_05-48-34Purpose-built for track and street use, the 2,100-pound car will be driven to and from the track when it’s raced. It is powered by a fully-built 312 cubic-inch Coyote engine featuring a Livernois-sleeved 3.700-inch bore block and Mahle pistons. It makes more than 530 rear-wheel horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque at a conservative 12:1 compression ratio utilizing InnoV8 billet individual throttle bodies for its aspiration.

“This build has been a labor of love, and we are excited to get it out on road courses to see how it handles and performs,” Gearhart said. “Our thanks to all of our sponsors and build partners who helped this dream become a reality.”
