Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) today announced a multi-year year contract naming GoPro as the official camera of the SCCA through 2014. And honestly, with the insane success of GoPro, it’s a likely contract to be renewed.
“GoPro has a long motorsports tradition that starts with our CEO, Nick Woodman, learning to race at Raceway Sonoma while many of our employees, including Nick, are SCCA members,” said Rod Rojas Sports Marketing Manager of Four Wheel Motorsports for GoPro. “We are proud to join the SCCA as a sponsor, and are looking forward to showing the motorsports world how they can fuel their passion and capture amazing on-track and in-car footage.”
During each of the 24 National Championship Runoffs races, a panel of judges will choose one driver for the “HERO Moment” during a race showing the most outstanding effort or performance. The “HERO Moment” at the Tire Rack Solo National Championship will go to the driver who makes up the most positions from day one to two in each of the six categories. All eight of the RallyCross National Champions will receive a GoPro camera, as will the winners of this year’s Majors Championship classes in Club Racing.
And if you’re not into weekend racing on a more competitive level, don’t fret, GoPro and SCCA are also going to vive away two GoPros a month through different contests run on the SCCA’s official Facebook page and Twitter channel.
