NHRA, WEB, BUSINESS: Sickles Corp. Motorsports Signs More New Sponsors at US Nationals
18 September 1998Sickles Corp. Motorsports is proud to announce two new sponsorship programs that were assembled late Sunday evening during the 44th running of the US Nationals in Indianapolis, IN this past weekend.
MotorsportsApparel.com and VRViews have came on board as Associate Sponsors starting at Indy and will continue throughout a ten race and possibly a full schedule in 1999. "This announcement was made literally hours before the final elimination's started on Sunday morning", said Sickles.
Company executives from VRViews and MotorsportsApparel.com are making this new web-site a state-of-the-art, 3D virtual reality on-line shopping catalog for purchasing all types of motorsports apparel, souvenirs, and collectibles. The demo they have shown us is unbelievable. Unlike conventional online catalogs, it allows the shopper the ability to see what theyre buying by turning the image they have selected around (a full 360 degrees) and by zooming in to specific areas of the product. This interaction with the web-site and product will greatly increase the time the buyer spends with a product increasing the sales rate and reducing returned merchandise said Sickles.
VRViews and division of R&D Technology will be involved providing the 3D virtual reality technology. "You have to see it to believe it", said the smiling Sickles. PioneerNet USA, a division of R&D Technology of Sherman Oaks, Calif. will support the project with the back-bone technology and internet service for the entire program. R&D Technology is an industry leader in providing internet site design and services world wide.
