RaceTech to provide full HD OB facilities and integrity services for RMG racecourses for a further three years


RaceTech has been successful in securing a three-year extension of its contract to provide full HD outside Broadcast (OB) facilities and integrity services to Racecourse Media Group (RMG) racecourses until the end of 2021. 

Richard FitzGerald, CEO of RMG, said: “Following a comprehensive tender process, the RMG Board agreed that RaceTech was best-placed to deliver on the exciting opportunities that exist in horseracing OB production and technology. The renewal will see a closer integration between RaceTech and our production team at Ealing Studios, which will result in strategic and financial benefits for the RMG racecourse shareholders.”

John Bozza, Chief Executive of RaceTech said, “We are delighted to be able to continue our long-term partnership with Racing UK to provide the best service using up to date technology for their benefit and for those of their racecourse customers. Our highly experienced crews and engineers work closely with our racecourses customers, the BHA and broadcasters to ensure the highest standards are maintained.”

As part of its commitment to RMG, RaceTech is commissioning a new outside broadcast truck to add to its fleet and be operational from early 2019.
