Fans of the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb who aren’t lucky enough to be at the event in person will now have the opportunity to live stream all the action from wherever they are.
Six cameras will be strategically positioned along the 1.9km Simola road so that every inch of tarmac is within view of spectators tuning in from anywhere in the world. Two more cameras will roam the pit complex for behind the scenes looks at the cars and drivers. All that’s required is an internet connection, and fans can enjoy a live stream of the 2018 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb on their smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs or smart TVs.
Popular South African sports presenter Arnold Geerdts will be the voice of the 2018 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb, offering commentary on the racing action as it happens. Viewers will also benefit from live timing screens as well as competition leaderboards, eliminating guesswork when it comes to who’s who and how fast they get up the hill.
The event schedule kicks off on Friday with the annual Classic Car Friday competition, followed by King of the Hill practice and qualifying sessions on Saturday, two more qualifying runs on Sunday morning and the King of the Hill Finale on Sunday afternoon.
Viewers will have the choice of watching on two platforms. Tune in on Jaguar South Africa’s Facebook page during the event to watch practice, qualifying and class final runs as they happen. Jaguar South Africa’s YouTube channel will also stream nonstop from Friday morning to Sunday evening with a continuous loop of on track action when no live racing is taking place. The YouTube feed will also feature some video-on-demand highlights, separately to the main stream.
