Blackwoods Camcat Camera Takes Bathurst Coverage Next-Level

October 6, 2017

With Redbull HRT, Team Penske and PRT each having signalled their intent for Bathurst glory in recent weeks, this Sunday's race is shaping up as an absolute cracker. And if you're watching from home it'll be made even better with some new broadcasting technology being introduced to Mount Panorama for the very first time.

When you tune in to this Sunday’s Bathurst 1000 be sure to keep an eye out for the Blackwoods CAMCAT, a brand new high-speed overhead camera that’s set to satisfy your need-for-speed like never before.

With a top speed of up to 150km/h, the CAMTCAT will be delivering stunning shots of this year’s Great Race all the way from the grid, to the front straight, pit lane and even the podium.

In recent years CAMCAT has been used everywhere from Formula 1 racing to Robbie Williams concerts, however the technology has never been used before at Australia’s most famous racetrack.

In what's shaping up as one of the closest races in recent memory, the Blackwoods CAMCAT will be flying high above Mount Panorama, providing viewers with otherwise unobtainable perspectives of the race.

CAMCAT is just one of 198 total cameras to be used over the weekend’s broadcast, delivering 48-and-a-half hours’ total coverage with 22 hours live, so be sure to tune in Friday and Saturday for practice and qualifiers and then from 11am Sunday for the main event.

As Australia's leading provider of industrial supplies, Blackwoods has a long standing affinity with the automotive industry and are excited to play a small part in this years' race.
