RaceTech was originally set up to provide technical support for horseracing, and is currently responsible for the provision and operation of photofinish, OB facilities, camera patrol, race timing, public address and radio communications across many of the UK’s racecourses. The company also supplies closed-circuit television coverage, racecourse cable installations, and feeds pictures to other broadcasting concerns. This year has also seen RaceTech broaden its horizons outside of the racing world, bringing 50 years of experience to the installation marketplace.
Home to the famous ‘Glorious Goodwood’ horse racing festival, Goodwood racecourse has recently turned to RaceTech for all of its communications solutions. In this instance, the company fitted the white-finished, weather-resistant loudspeakers in pairs, pole-mounted behind the railings within the oval-shaped interview enclosure, where the PA takes a separate feed from that of the grandstand.
“This is the first time I have used the Control 28 in this type of application and they are just right for the job – high quality matched with high intelligibility. They are very pleasing to listen to, and in fact we’ve had no end of comments from both horse-racing professionals and race goers about how good the sound is.”
