Forty Years of RaceCam

Bathurst 2019 marked the 40th anniversary of Channel 7, introducing RaceCam to the viewing public.

It was all a bit revolutionary in the day, when we strapped ourselves to the couch and watched Peter Williamson throw the little Celica down the mountain to Forrest’s Elbow.

RaceCam has been carried by Dick Johnson, Peter Brock, Alan Grice, George Fury, Glen Seton along with PeriscopeCam on Jim Richards BMW

Always entertaining and great to watch drivers at work..

Possibly "Evolutionary" rather than "Revolutionary".

But a great achievement nonetheless.

As a youngster it used the annoy the heck out of me. Like kids with a new toy, the commentators showed it too often and sometimes forgot about covering the actual race...

While I am too young to have seen its debut, it was probably the biggest game changer in the broadcasting history of the race, apart from maybe the introduction of colour.

I remember we used to get delayed highlights of the race the following week, and when we saw what had been live in car footage, and then the commentators actually talking to the drivers while they raced we were completely amazed. You were way ahead of us on that one.

Even today, I'm staggered at the quality of live images from the hostile environment of a race car.
