Connect with Helio Castroneves, Ana Beatriz via Ortsbo's 'Live & Global' Q&A on April 27
Apr 23, 2012
Here’s an opportunity for fans around the world to connect with Brazil natives Helio Castroneves and Ana Beatriz (Ana Beatriz Caselato Gomes de Figueriedo).
The IZOD IndyCar Series drivers will be the guests on the “Ortsbo Live & Global” Q&A at 6:30 p.m. (ET) April 27 from the site of the Itaipava São Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle. James Hinchcliffe will host the event.
Using Ortsbo's proprietary, live subtitling technology on the Live & Global platform, viewers both locally and internationally can watch and participate in the webcast Q&A in real time with closed captioning in any of Ortsbo's 53 supported languages. Additionally, fans will be able to submit questions during the one-hour program and follow along in their native language.
Castroneves, who drives the No. 3 Penske Logistics Chevrolet for Team Penske, won the 2012 season opener at St. Petersburg and is currently second in the IZOD IndyCar Series standings. Beatriz will make her season debut in the No. 25 Team Ipiranga car for Andretti Autosport. Both hail from the state of São Paulo and both will attempt to become the first Brazilian to win an Indy car race in Brazil since Andre Ribeiro won the inaugural race in Rio in 1996.
“We have a lot of loyal, very supportive fans out there and this is a great way to keep in touch with them,” said Hinchcliffe, who was the moderator of the Live & Global event with Rubens Barrichello and Tony Kanaan during the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach race weekend. “It’s the ultimate back-stage pass.”
