How Regolink was born

 

"Someone knows where the placements are published ??"

During a regularity rally one often asks for help, wondering where to find online rankings or the subscription form or the next rally event programme to participate to.

It’s time to put everything into due order!!

Regolink, an absolute novelty for the regularity rally world, was created with the purpose of giving to its fans access to all information related to racings, links to the official event sites, to the main European championship rankings and trophies and the latest national Federation news.

The programmed events are increasing and they are sometimes excluded from main broadcasting channels. Regolink, created thanks to the commitment of some fans, has the exact purpose of putting into order and spreading out ALL racings, from the “Club” small competition to the main international and glamorous challenges. Regolink constitutes a milestone, a sort of “road book” to untangle a way through this fantastic discipline named after “regularity racing”. Here all fans will certainly find “the right direction”, with all hints to achieve the final destination: links to the competitions, to the programmes, to the registered contestants, the rankings, etc. of all planned competitions. Thanks to Twitter all comments are available in real time.

 

The ideal Forum

Both a blessing and a curse for each discipline the discussion Forum couldn’t be missing, a spot where to find hints, latest news and fans mood.

Even under this aspect Regolink couldn’t miss its target of gathering links. By clicking on it you are forwarded to the main meeting point of the racings, the ideal hot spot for the fans: the regularity rally reference point for all regularity aficionados.

 

 

The most updated blog.

Even under this point of view Regolink offers the most up-date- online blog on the market.

 

 

Everybody’s help

Regolink is not like any other site dealing with regularity racings, but it’s an outstanding tool at the service of its fans and promoters and fostered by them. Thanks to everybody’s feedback it can enlist an elevated number of events, increasing all available information and participation of regularity fans.

While on the Homepage all racings appear only 14 days, in the section CALENDAR they are displayed until season’s end, or better until the following calendar is issued.

FIA e FIVA constitute the most important realities for rally followers as well as for regularity racings and it’s imperative to be always informed about the latest regulations. All related links will redirect you to the section containing the latest federation news.

 

FORUM

Regolink could have chosen to have its own Q&A forum to allow all contestants, fans, and staff to share their opinion under all regularity perspectives. But Regolink opted instead to follow its mission of linking information hotspots, making all possible data resources available.

 

BLOG

So did we for the section BLOG: Regolink is a starting point, not a blog, not a forum, but a site which indicates to visitors all best online regularity resources

"Idee che viaggiano" constitute the most updated blog on regularity rallies and vintage cars. The latest news, in depth analysis, and considerations on this world are here accessible.

RANKINGS

It’s the crowning moment for all the efforts made by regularity contestants: here again you will find all championships rankings links , ACISPORT Driver list, all ASI trophies and organizers challenges.

 

CONTACTS – RACINGS REGISTRATION

Anyone can communicate the above to Regolink, a fan, an organizer, a staff member and it’s free.

 

 

 

Twitter e Regolink, always updated.

 

TWITTER , modern technology at the service of The Ladies of The Past.

If someone has not discovered yet the high potentialities of Twitter, than he/she is heartily recommended to do so.

Through @Regolink live coverage it will be possible to send comments, ranking updates, pictures of the racing tracks, and everything which is related to regularity events.

Regolink has automatically generated hashtag* which will identify racings through the year. Anyone could follow the online race within his/her TWEET just by entering the race identification. All users can in this way deliver information within Regolink special dedicated space, visible even to those who are not followers . Organizers in their press releases are both in charge of advertising the hashtag(#) used for the race within twitter and of publicizing the internet site.

 

A Twitter mini- guide for regularity fans

For all Twitter outsiders here a short overview of this social network and its main terms.

Only 140 characters can be typed in so to share with others users news, updates, moods.

 

Why choosing Twitter if I have already got Facebook?

Because it can update you in real-time on actual trends.

Often news is released as a tweet before it’s issued through press agencies.

 

Let’s discover Twitter home in its components.

Once registered here some specifications on "followers" and "following".

 

Followers

They are all those who want to have our messages and updates. They could communicate in a private way and, to do so they simply click on the appropriate symbol and pick up in the menue “direct messages”.

 

Following

They are those whom we want to follow, i.e. users from whom we receive public messages. How do we chose the following? Mainly on taste, interest and actitude affinitiy.

 

Tweet

They consitute all messages we publish, which are read by followers on our profile.

 

How to write a tweet?

First of all click on the pen symbol on the right. Then a window will open up, counting the characters you are typing. A tweet may even contain a picture, a video or other links (e.g. rally rankings)

 

hashtag

(equivalent to #).It’s a fundamental symbol to optimize the usage of Twitter, since it indicates the subject of your speech

 

By placing it at the beginning of the chosen subject, e.g. #1000miglialive (N.B. please bear in mind to write the subject without leaving spaces if it’s a compound word) all those looking for such information will spot your tweet.

Let’s finish with an example: if I am participating to the race or following it on the road edge (or on the coach) the “Aosta-Gran Bernardo”, you only need to enter "#aostagsb" within the message and all online followers will see it right away: easy right? Follow us on @regolink! !!!

 

Organizers, photographers, staff and Regolink

 

Organizers

 

Do not trust words of mouth

It’s fair to underline that Regolink was created to inform all participants as well as to help them in the participation planning, even and most of all to allow organizers to promote in a proper way their events. You can often read in technical magazines that the final event competition has often few contestants…but such events were nearly unknown to the aficionados!!!

Events are often promoted through word of mouth or mailing lists, though popular have still limits due to territoriality or club membership or racing teams. That’s why EVENT ORGANIZERS have to take advantage of Regolink potentiality

Check if on the page CALENDAR your own event appears. If not communicate it right away using the form on the page CONTACTS.

 

How is the event information managed?

As previously described if the event is already indicated on Regolink CALENDAR, the nit will automatically appear on the HOMEPAGE ten days before the event start and will be deleted four days after event’s termination

Information related to registered members, rankings and pictures will be obtainable when Regolink will be aware of their publication through the organizer’s site. Sometimes the picture section is not furnished to the link will be inactive.

Such enterings are all free.

That’s why it’s indispensable to indicate who will take care of the timing and related link!

 

As far as the LIVE STREAMING is concerned please see the chapter “Twitter and Regolink, always updated” to understand its potentialities and usage terms.

 

How can I promote my event?

It’s possible to anticipate your own event on the HOMEPAGE (so 10 days in advance by default) or to buy a banner. Indicate your needs to

info@regolink.com.

 

 

 

Your event hasn’t got an internet site?

If the competition organized by you is not provided with an internet site, Regolink will offer you a section within its site.

A tiny web page with a racing logo will be created, with the possibility to publish its programme, times chart, registration form, contestants list and the rankings, so to promote at its best your event. Please contact us for all your requirements at info@regolink.com
