    Virtual Skid

    Hi Dickie, First off we would like to thank you for your continued support for the Virtual Skid streams, you have posted positively promoting Virtual Skid in various threads on the forum and that hasn’t gone unnoticed by us. Regarding the viewing figures, you are correct that just over 100 viewers tuned in live to watch the Premiere of Virtual Skid 7, however it remains viewable on catch-up as Chris has mentioned above for those who were unable to watch live as is all past Virtual Skid streams. These viewing figures continue to increase daily. We constantly monitor various streams up and down the country and can say our viewing figures for Virtual Skid, SGB streams aside, sit well alongside regular club meeting streams and in many cases gain more Premiere viewings than a good portion of them. Also, there are many other private statistics available on our streams which are even more important to us than the view count visible to the public below the videos. Amongst others, just one important observation the public view count doesn’t show is that friends are starting to get together to watch it in groups and multiple families are doing the same, so whilst the view count may show 1, there are in fact, in some cases that we know of over 10 people watching on that count alone. All of the speedway streams from the various production companies within the sport have been a massive help to people up and down the country in so many ways during the current situation. Many people print out our race card, put the Virtual Skid Premieres in their diaries, watch it with their families and friends, engage and many take the time to send us dedicated emails and messages privately of thanks etc. It makes it worthwhile in many ways to try in every way we can to continue to produce the Virtual Skid streams. Sponsorship wise, we have already hit our minimum target to allow us to go weekly for the next 4 instalments with 8 heats, meetings sponsor and 1 team sponsor per meeting already taken before any teams have been announced. Although we are in good shape, we do need more support for the future, we still have those remaining 7 heats available along with other opportunities to get involved. We do try at all times to promote those who help us and give back as much value as we possibly can. There is an incredible amount of hours involved in producing a Virtual Skid meeting stream, well over 15 times that of a standard meeting stream that is already recorded and edited. The sponsorship goes towards making it possible to dedicate that time weekly (or as close to it) for the fans to continue to enjoy, for free. And it is great to see that multiple speedway production companies have already been involved with us (Speedway Portal, Oxford Speedway Productions & Classic Speedway Videos) and we continue to reach out to other production companies to include footage from multiple clubs, tracks and teams along with featuring a variety of fans, riders and officials from within our sport. With only 7 Virtual Skid meetings so far, we are still at the infancy of our journey. So for everyone who sponsors us, supports us and watches our Premieres we thank you for your support, and look forward to growing Virtual Skid with many new tweaks and ideas already in mind to implement as we progress. Andy and Barry
