Road America Launches New Website

ELKHART LAKE, Wis., Nov. 22, 2013 – Road America officials announced today the debut
of its new website, ,
which is now mobile optimized, making navigation on smart phones and tablets easier
than ever.

“We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the guest experience at Road America,”
said track president and general manager George Bruggenthies. “Our goal was to develop
a brand new website from the ground up, placing high priority on ease of navigation
and a better overall experience for our fans. This new design makes it easier to
find event information, buy tickets and share the experience, all on one site.
The site’s responsive technology is important in the ever-changing marketplace where
fans are using their smartphones and tablets for communication and purchase power
more than ever before. Our new platform accommodates all web devices in one user-friendly

Road America’s new website highlights ticket and event information available before,
during and after race weekends, including camping information, promotions, gate
policies, race day activities, the latest news and much more. Developed by The Medium
Creative Group in Costa Mesa, Calif., and nearly a year in the making, the new mobile-optimized
website offers increased functionality, clear navigation menus and large buttons
to quickly access major subsections of the website.

“In a world where smartphones and tablets are setting new records with usage, we
had to modify our communication style to meet our guests’ needs,” said John Ewert,
communications director at Road America. “This new website satisfies a majority
of those needs. We have listened to our guests and modified the new website accordingly
while staying aligned with feedback from season ticket holders as well. Now, our
guests can easily access our website on their smart phones and tablets while at
home or at the track. All of the necessary information, including event schedules,
ticket information, camping guidelines, gate policies, schools and other events,
is right at the guests’ fingertips. It’s a work in progress effort, and more changes
and additions will be made, such as new additions to our history pages, live timing
and scoring and new promotions tying in social media, but this is a huge step in
the right direction.”
