Racetech renews Bronze SVG Europe sponsorship

Racetech, which provides a range of technical and broadcast services for the horse racing industry, has renewed its Bronze sponsorship of SVG Europe.

The company provides broadcast facilities at over 1,500 fixtures across 59 racecourses supplying HD pictures for terrestrial transmission by ITV Racing and satellite channels Racing TV and Sky Sports Racing. Its fleet of high spec fully HD mobile control units and support vehicles deliver live coverage of every race, directed and produced in partnership with broadcasters and delivered via fibre optic direct to air. Additional services include integrity services and engineering.

The company has recently announced a number of partnership extensions, including a long-term agreement with Ascot Racecourse that will see RaceTech continue to provide full outside broadcast facilities, integrity coverage, in-house programming and other essential racecourse services such as photo finish, race timing and the starting stalls operation. The extension, which flows through to 2027, also encompasses RaceTech’s provision of additional OB resource to produce separate upgraded Ascot broadcast productions for fixtures including the five-day Royal Ascot meeting in June.

Earlier this year, Racetech also agreed a five-year partnership with Chester Racecourse and its sister track Bangor-On-Dee, covering all outside broadcast requirements, racecourse TV and media services. Also included is the provision of raceday integrity services such as photo finish, race timing and starting stalls.
