Why not someone with Historic knowledge doing the pit Lane stuff?

Thanks Mike and John!
Good weekend overall, apart from loosing a couple of laps with the Lister.
Enjoyable stint in the GT40!

The GT 40 race went well.
Sure they can conjure a few more cars by next round
Should be about 20 at least
Notice there was an original 66 Le Mans car on display.

I think that Marcus Pye might have been at Thruxton commentating in CSCC.

MANY thanks Delta - we're committed to improving & refining the "stream" quality..so any thought's/criticisms/tips/recommendations are VERY welcome.

We have several discussions ongoing with race promoters (in UK & Continental Europe) about securing "live streaming" for events later this year...

We're also looking to extend our footprint with collectors car & historic motorsport digital platforms

You would understand we have to make the "commercial numbers" work, but also to give fellow enthusiasts the best experience, whether at the circuit...in Malaga, Montana or Makarora!!

Thanks for all feedback!

Doug

Many thanks to you, I did enjoy the coverage. For those who dont know the drivers name, may I kindly suggest that when the first letters are displayed (which is OK) then the car race number is it possible to have the numbers displayed for longer time? Only a detail from abroad. Thanks again.

The 3 of us enjoyed the weekend marshalling through the Craner Curves. Some good dices, some very impressive racing and plenty to admire.
Thanks to all the competitors for putting on a great show.

I watched around half of the races online but didn't see any replays of the more interesting moves, by which I mean during the live event. Camera angles worked well for the most part but I agree with others that the commentating was very lacklustre, watching the Sunday Junior race I could have been listening to the Saturday commentary as they only seemed to talk about the same few cars and not with any real insight. Some in-car footage would have helped lift dull commentary. But overall I enjoyed it and it was good enough to keep me away from all the weekend jobs I should have been doing.

Thanks very much Colin..noted, for our production review.

Historic Motorsport TV's key goals are to spread the excitement of Historic Racing globally, engaging with enthusiasts old & new, irrespective of age & gender.

We (Doug, Sarah & Nick) would like to say a massive thank you to the Donington Historic Festival organisers & our sponsors; DK Engineering, Motor Racing Legends & The Royal Automobile club and everyone who believed in us.

The entire "live-stream" is now available for viewing here.

One frustration that came out was the lack of knowledge as described above which, considering the commentators, was a bit sad really. They described the Clarke Group A Rover as a replica. In fact it is the original chassis as driven by Soperman in 1983 and restored by the Engineer who built it as an employee of Tom Wlakinshaw in 1982. Likewise the Marlboro Group 1 Rover was the original Rene Metge French Touring Car chassis built by DPR (a sister chassis to my old Rover).

Some times together with the entry form we are encouraged to fill another one giving precious info about the car and driver to the commentator. Rather useless I must admit because talking about spectators we have so few not mentioning the coverage which is still to be discovered here. Lucky you.
Happy with your race, Peter?

Assume you are doing a similar thing for Thruxton
Sure we can help to make Pre War race more interesting as I can see problems if your team are not familiar with this class of racing.

Yes i noted that as a bit of a faux pas.

May be it would help the quality and quantity of info given by the commentators if you had one or two "referent" for each grid.
