Stolen from Live Sockets
13-Episode Redline: Time Attack! TV Show Announced
Los Angeles (November 3rd, 2008) - The Redline: Time Attack! Series, the premiere time attack series in North America, is announcing their plans for the 2009 season. The series is coming off a very strong year in 2008, which saw a total of 7 races across the United States and solid growth in participation and spectator numbers. As the industry and enthusiast communities begin to transition into what many are calling a "renaissance" of road racing in North America, The Redline:Time Attack! Series is positioned to lead the way.
Several key announcements for the 2009 season are being made. These include the return of Performance Auto & Sound Magazine as an Official Media Partner of the series. PAS Mag will provide editorial coverage of every Redline event in 2009, as well as produce and distribute the official Series Program available to all spectators free of charge. PAS and Redline will work very closely together to grow the sport of Time Attack over the next couple of years, as PAS is onboard through the end of the 2010 season. A new addition to the series for 2009 as an Official Media Partner is DSport Magazine. DSport will offer editorial coverage of every Redline event in 2009 as well as include footage of Redline races on 3 of their DVDs in addition to producing a fan-copy of the Rule Book and Technical Guide. DSport has done an excellent job of covering Redline Time Attack races in the past, offering the "technical" coverage of the sport that is difficult to find anywhere else.

A completely new and 100% re-designed RedlineTimeAttack.com website will be launched in the first part of the New Year. The new site will include Web 2.0 technologies and features in addition to message forums, video galleries, pod casts and community generated content.
Possibly the biggest news heading into the 2009 Season is the announcement of a 13-episode Redline:Time Attack! television program airing on DirecTV, Dish and most major cable provider networks. This is a HUGE development for the sport of Time Attack and Redline in particular. The television series will be produced by Crescent Moon Productions in a close working relationship with the staff at Redline. Footage from every Redline race as well as behind the scenes shop visits, interviews with leading racers & tuners and industry news will be featured on the episodes. Finally, the sport of Time Attack will receive the much needed television exposure it so deserves.
We will see a return of the Championship Points Race in 2009, with a total of 8 Championship races being held across the country. Unlimited Class teams will be given the opportunity to put money on the table and run for season ending Championship cash payouts of up to $25,000! Expect to see up to two "Dash for Cash" invitational events held alongside other premiere motorsports events as well. The wheel-to-wheel Super Session bonus rounds will also be making a return to 4 events next year. Redline was the first to incorporate the wheel-to-wheel racing aspect into Time Attack in North America, where it was received with great enthusiasm. Redline will also be teaming up with Live Sockets Entertainment to bring back the "Live Sockets Circuit Battles", pairing top tuners from across the country in head-to-head Touge-style lapping battles.
Redline will be releasing more information in the coming months via their new website. Expect to see announcements for each team opting to "franchise" with the series with full team profiles listed on the website. Redline will also bring lifestyle elements to many of the larger events in 2009 and are working on developing relationships with leading car show and entertainment organizers.
