RaceTech signs new five-year deal with Chester and Bangor-On-Dee racecourses

RaceTech has signed a new long-term partnership with Chester Racecourse and its sister track Bangor-On-Dee.

Chester Racecourse, just outside Liverpool, is the oldest operational racecourse in the world, staging the Boodles May Festival and is home to many prestigious races, including the Chester Vase, Cheshire Oaks and the Chester Cup. Bangor-On-Dee is North Wales’ only racecourse and stages jumps racing all-year round.

The new partnership spans five years covering all outside broadcast requirements, racecourse TV (RCTV) and media services. Also included is the provision of race day integrity services including photo finish, race timing and starting stalls.

RaceTech chief executive John Bozza said: “We are very pleased to extend our long association with both courses. Chester is a stunning and unique racecourse hosting many quality days on the famous Roodee and Bangor-On-Dee stands out as a year-round jumps track with its own special charm and characteristics.

“We look forward to using advanced technology and innovation to maximise the quality and content of their outside broadcasts and providing enhanced RCTV production to benefit audience
communication and interaction.”

Steve Davies, chief operating officer at Chester Race Company, which owns both racecourses, added: “We are really pleased to have signed a new long-term contract with RaceTech to provide their broadcast expertise and deliver essential raceday services to Chester and Bangor-On-Dee.

“RaceTech continue to innovate in the industry, and we are looking forward to maximising the benefits of their technology and coverage to continue showcasing our amazing racecourses and enhancing the on-course experience for all our guests.”
