Kangaroo let loose in F1

Kangaroo Media Inc. and Formula One Management have announced a six-year deal to provide fans at races with live race video, audio and data on Kangaroo Media's unique KangarooTV hand-held device. The KangarooTV service represents a new direction in the way that F1fans in the stands view races. It combines the race telecast with live in-car camera and audio channels, creating the ultimate spectator experience. Fans can follow their favourite drivers around the track on the KangarooTV screen, receive race telemetry and timing data, and listen to live driver and team communications, all from a device in the palm of their hands.

The KangarooTV service for Formula 1 is expected to debut on a limited basis at the 2006 U.S. Grand Prix on July 2.
