Go Social with Data

Motorsport Stats established an exciting new partnership in 2018 with the global sport industry’s pre-eminent social media publishing platform, Playing Surface.

By integrating MSS data into the platform that powers the social output for everyone from UEFA to the Tour de France, we have jointly conspired to offer motor racing teams and promoters a way of unifying their data with their owned social audiences.

With both live in-game and post session data feeds, the service provides the ability to automatically generate beautifully artworked social posts in seconds without graphic design capability. The platform’s speed and accuracy allows social and media teams to post during track sessions or stages when news equity is at its highest and audiences are fully engaged.

Databases

Motorsport Stats builds, integrates and manages results pages and deeper motorsport results databases on customer platforms with its own proprietary UI, SEO, programmatic advertising solutions and audience traffic referrals from Motorsport Network’s leading motor racing websites including Autosport.com and Motorsport.com.

Motorsport Stats supports federations and promoters in results archive services and database architecture using a validated entity model and scalable solutions stack centred around high-frequency NoSQL solutions.
