There are exciting new changes coming to Endurance Radio’s Thunderhill broadcast in 2016, however. We are please to confirm that trackside streaming will return to Thunderhill with five cameras courtesy of RaceCast.me, while graphical overlays will use RaceHero provided data, all in an effort to bring Thunderhill its first fully produced and mixed live broadcast. Additionally, our pitlane team will finally have a live link back to the booth, allowing for live interviews and updates from the paddock as well as remote reports from around the circuit.
We have also modified our streaming service slightly. We are very excited to have moved our broadcast to YouTube, allowing for greater visibility and flexibility throughout the weekend. We will attempt to rebroadcast to Livestream for our dedicated followers there, but invite you to join us on at our new home on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLQZlg9pVyj4vq-oMDsF9ng
Additionally, we are providing an audio-only streaming option for those present at the track or other data-conscious fans of Thunderhill. Our primary audio stream will be hosted on Mixlr ( http://mixlr.com/endurance-radio/ ) with a rebroadcast stream on TuneIn. Both have available mobile apps.
Endurance Radio is proud to once again raise the standard of promotion and coverage of the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill presented by Hawk Performance. There is no doubt that Thunderhill is one of the finest endurance races worldwide, supported by the best community. We firmly believe that together with RaceCast’s video expertise and RaceHero.io’s phenomenal timing applet, Thunderhill represents the very best that the endurance racing community has to offer. We thank all of you for your support and hope to see you from December 2-4, 2016!
