Indianapolis, Wallingford: Jun. 21, 2012: It was announced today that American race car driver Conor Daly will receive backing for the rest of the 2012 racing season from VBrick Systems Inc., an American company that specializes in streaming video solutions. VBrick’s sponsorship will include partnering with Daly to produce high definition live video events via the internet that will provide sponsors and fans with unprecedented live access to Conor and his Lotus GP race team.

VBrick, the leader in Enterprise IP Video, delivers comprehensive streaming solutions that are used in a wide range of live and on-demand applications including meeting and event broadcasts, enterprise-wide video content management, TV distribution, distributed learning, digital signage, and video surveillance. VBrick’s customers include many of the world’s most sophisticated global corporations, leading educational institutions and government agencies.

Daly will carry the VBrick logo on his helmet, racing suit and on his Lotus GP prepared GP3 car.

“It is a personal sense of satisfaction for me to be supported by a successful American company who is providing leading edge video solutions to companies across the globe. My world is fast paced and high tech, it’s a perfect match for VBrick” said Daly, “I look forward to working with them, and to providing my fans across the globe live access from some of Europe’s greatest sports venues.”

VBrick’s Online Streaming Service, VBOSS, will kick-off Daly’s coverage by connecting Conor’s fans to behind-the-scenes action from Silverstone, England during the build-up to the British Grand Prix, July 6th – 8th.

“VBrick is thrilled to support Conor, and through our technology help make his fans and sponsors feel like members of his team. Like VBrick’s customers, Conor needs speed, superior performance, and leading edge technology to best his rivals. Our goals align perfectly, and we look forward to Conor becoming the next American Formula One star,” said Doug Howard, CEO of VBrick.

Daly, who won round two of the championship in Barcelona, Spain in May, drives for Lotus GP, an all French team based just outside Paris, France. It is arguably Europe's best junior team having won the past two GP3 championships. Past drivers who have come through their development system include, Lewis Hamilton, Nico Hulkenberg, Paul DiResta, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg.

All GP3 races will be televised live throughout the European continent on Sky Sports and will be available live on-line in America through SPEED2.
