SmartWitness strikes deal with British Truck Racing Association Championship

Paul Singh, founder and CEO of SmartWitness

SmartWitness will see all British Truck Racing Association Championship (BTRAC) race vehicles equipped with its video camera systems following a new deal.

The forward-facing, rear facing and blind-side cameras will be installed on all competing trucks at BTRAC events from November and will provide live video support for race officials at the events to thoroughly investigate suspected driving infringements.

SmartWitness’ chief executive Paul Singh (pictured) said: “We are really proud to be a part of the British Truck Racing Association Championship, we are big fans of the sport and it’s great that we can help make it safer and fairer.”

Competing trucks will have 1080HD footage on a monitored live stream via connected 3G/4G SmartWitness cameras which will be monitored on the SmartView software platform.

The software will allow officials to track back to the exact moment of an alleged infringement and analyse footage frame by frame.

BTRAC’s championship director Glen Horncastle said: “The SmartWitness system and cameras are the perfect solution to assist race officials to investigate and monitor these race trucks in race conditions.

"The SmartWitness cameras and software really impressed us and ticked all the boxes from what we needed from live video analysis.

“Not only will the Championship benefit from this relationship but so will the fans, as they will be given the opportunity of viewing truck racing from new angles and with previously unavailable vehicle telemetry.”
