A major redesign for the official site of the most popular rally in the Caribbean.
Sub contracted by Caribbean New Media, eConcepts set about redesigining the official Rally Barbados website.
Rally Barbados is the largest annual motorsport event in the Caribbean, with a 20-year history, beginning as a one-day club rally for local entrants. Now boasting a large and returning overseas contingent from the UK and other Caribbean islands, Rally Barbados has grown into a 2-week long motorsports event.
Website activity on www.rallybarbados.bb surges in the weeks and months ahead of the event in May / June, so the Barbados Rally Club needed a hosting provider who could a) handle the vastly increased traffic with no loss of service and b) online facilities for dissemination of news and important documents to competitors as well as easy uploads of action photos during the event itself.
Some of the features of the www.rallybarbados.bb site are:
- news and results archived from the present back to the earliest available results
- easy image uploads during the event for several photographers who cover the event annually
- live vehicle tracking links to show competitors speeds through stages and their location (vehicle tracking hardware and display provided by www.GeoOrbis.com
- front-page news snippets, editable by roving field reporters, to keep fans abreast of breaking rally news
