VisionTrack has been confirmed as the official video telematics provider to the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) for the second year running.

The company will provide high-quality footage for broadcast of the 20 race trucks competing in the BTRC’s Division One and Division Two.

“We have been incredibly impressed with the quality and reliability of the video telematics solution, so we are delighted to be continuing our partnership with VisionTrack this year,” explained Steve Thomas of race organisers Truck Sport UK.

“Last season, the vehicle camera system proved to be invaluable to the race officials, while providing a new dimension to our broadcast and promotional activities,” Thomas added.

VisionTrack has upgraded the video telematics for this year’s event, using its VT3000 AI dashcams along with a rear-view camera. Race officials will now be able to access a substream feed that can download footage within seconds to speed-up in-race investigations. This will work alongside livestream video from each truck that assists with the management of on/off track race compliance, while HD video will also be available during and post-race for livestream broadcasting, media clips and a TV highlights programme.

Mark Turner, sporting manager of British Automobile Racing Club Limited said: “As the motorsport industry continues to evolve, it is paramount that officials are provided with the information needed to make the right decisions. The VisionTrack solution puts our officials in complete control of what footage they want and allows them to quickly assess on track incidents. The combination of forward and rear facing cameras for all the trucks competing in the BRTC ensures they get the best angles in a timeframe that allows decisions to be made in the heat of the race day.”   

Trucks and drivers from the British Truck Racing Championship will be at Road Transport Expo at NAEC Stoneleigh (30 June to 2 July). Register now for FREE
