Cooper Tires Presents the Atlantic Championship was pleased to announce yesterday that the series has arranged to provide fans with on-demand video of the Atlantic Series races this season.

While the television package for the 2008 is still being finalized for the series, Atlantic fans can catch up by enjoying the online video archives found on the official Atlantic Championship web site, www.atlantic-championship.com. Video of the 2008 season opener, the Imperial Capital Bank Atlantic Challenge of Long Beach is now available in the video player located on the front page of the Atlantic site, and last month’s Monterey Festival of Speed at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, is currently being processed and will also be available online soon! Videos of subsequent races will be posted on the series’ offical website as soon after the race weekends as they are available.

“This is awesome news!” exclaimed Wirth. “There’s been a lot of extra work for everyone at the Atlantics this year since the Champ Car World Series merged with Indy Car. I know everyone’s been really busy trying to pull things together so we can have a fantastic run this year, but it hasn’t been easy. Thankfully, Mazda Motorsports has shown their commitment to our success and have been supporting the Atlantics staff in their efforts and things are starting to come together! I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors and supporters of the Atlantic Series, especially everyone that supports me in the #88 WIRSOL/SUEBA USA entry. Thank you for sticking with us and believing in the long history of the Atlantics – without your help we wouldn’t be racing! More than anything, I’m happy that these companies and investors will finally be rewarded with some of the exposure they deserve, and hopefully it’ll only get better.”

Andreas is also happy to announce that progress is being made elsewhere, and he encourages you to keep an eye out for his new website which is scheduled to be launched prior to his next race at Mont-Tremblant at the end of the month. “I’ll be glad when my new site finally goes live! The planning stages and work involved in this total re-build have taken much longer than we’d hoped, but I know all of the long hours and hard work will be worth it!” explained Andreas. “We’re going to have a lot of cool new features – downloadable autographs and wallpaper, a gallery full of photos right back to my early days in racing, news and appearance schedules that will be updated regularly – it’s going to be awesome! I’m also glad to tell you that more and more of my supporters are getting on board for the Racing Realities Prediction Contest! It’s growing so much that we’ve decided to award more than just one prize this year, including products from HiRev Skincare and UPR Racing Supply. Check out www.RacingRealities.com for all of the details and get your predictions in – it’s not too late to win, and I appreciate seeing my fans getting involved!”
