The climb to Pikes Peak 2017 can be seen live via the Internet
XXI century, as we began to think of autonomous vehicles, car sharing, discovery of seven new Earthlike exoplanets ... still we could not adequately follow one of the most special motorsports competitions: The climb to Pikes Peak. The test conditions particular, the situation of the route, adverse weather conditions and the complexity to have phone coverage, have made during these years, think about seeing the race live clouds was something rather utopian.
Even with the powerful Red Bull behind the relay record attempt Sébastien Loeb edition of PPIHC in 2013 was disappointing, with numerous cuts and parts of the ascent that could not see live. This seems to be about to change. Broadmoor responsible for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb have signed an agreement with Matchsports for the live broadcast via the Internet Test the next 10 years.
Matchsports team and moved last September to test its system of cameras and coverage available for such retransmission. The Swiss company was very satisfied with the result after two days of testing, ensuring that levels have connectivity enough to cover the next edition, the 95th, which will be held on 25 June.
The race organizers say this year fans around the world (via Internet) will enjoy first a live broadcast high-quality output to the top, located at 4,300 meters above sea level, where fans expect two checkered flags that has traditionally carried the commissioner. Does anyone think losing these 19,99 km route dotted with 156 curves? At the moment we have several attractions, including a Romain Dumas promises to give much Guerrar with barqueta Norma 'revved' and the Faraday Future FF91 debuting on the asphalt of Pikes Peak. Hopefully our expectations to be rewarded.
