NEW WEBSITE FEATURES:

Welcome to the new H1Unlimited.com! We have revamped our website to prepare for the exciting future of the sport. Now we have room to add unlimited features into the new platform that will give our fans, teams and sponsors MUCH more information than ever before about the most exciting motorsport on the planet – H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes!

The new website design is a much easier to use format and it’s mobile-friendly, meaning you can view the entire site just as easily on your phone or tablet as you can on a desktop computer.

The new, simpler site navigation process makes accessing your information as easy as clicking a tab. Almost all pages are laid out this way, so it pays to explore!

All the information from the old website is here. Design updates will take place while while adding much more content and many more features as we ramp up to our 2015 season opener in Madison on July 3rd.

GoLiveSportsCast

For 2015, a new contract with GoLive Sports Cast will guarantee a web-based TV program for every national race. There is an online built in audience (9k-80,000) on GoLive Sports Cast.com. It will allow H1 to be placed on ROKU for an additional eight million subscribers in the United States and six million in Canada and the United Kingdom.

GoLive Sports Cast will also allow H1 to distribute content to ESPN3 for future programming. Seattle and Tri-Cities will have local television broadcasts and web delivery of those two national races on KIRO-TV and KNDU-TV, respectively. This new service will allow full integration with devices and browsers with no additional software to install.

A new web presence, aggressive social media strategy, new statistics are all being developed and accumulated to help fans follow the sport and allow media outlets an easier method to enhance their stories.
