Vehicle Technology: Racing and Performance Forum
When:October 30, 2012 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Where:Las Vegas Convention Center, Grand Lobby, Vehicle Technology Center
The Racing and Performance Forum panel session will be held on opening day, Tuesday, October 30, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the VTC Theater. Speakers will include Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing; Jim Campbell, leader of General Motors Performance Vehicles and Motorsports; Ralph Gilles, head of Chrysler Design and the SRT Group; Brian Gale, co-founder of Global RallyCross; Roger Curtis, Michigan International Speedway; Ricky Johnson, Traxxas TORC Driver; Luke Johnson, Traxxas TORC Driver; Chris Petrillo, Oakley; and Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR SVP of Competition. Professional racing driver, stunt driver and television host Tanner Foust will headline the panel in this exciting forum focused on today’s challenges and the future of racing and performance.
What will be the impact of advanced technologies and tighter federal emissions and fuel-efficiency standards on the racing and performance market today and in the near future? Is Gen Y’s lack of interest in cars affecting racing and performance? Does winning on Sunday still translate to selling on Monday? This session will explore these questions and trends and well as how leading automakers are focusing on matching horsepower with the fastest computing power and supporting existing series such as NASCAR and new series such as Global Rallycross (GRC).
GRC connects with the urban, metropolitan and youth-orientated approach of ESPN’s X Games. The fusing of GRC and X Games has been a catalyst for many action sports athletes migrating from other sports to motorsports and provides an excellent platform for making small cars cool. NASCAR Green is growing stronger and faster than ever and has made significant environmental improvements and technological advancements in sustainability.
