Gravity Media, the leading global provider of complex live broadcast facilities and production services to content owners, creators, and distributors, is thrilled to announce the renewal of a five-year contract with Supercars in Australia. This Supercars contract adds to Gravity Media’s twelve-year relationship with the car racing sport.

Gravity Media has been contracted to supply Supercars with a complete outside broadcast solution along with all the in-car camera systems fitted in the Supercars using our Globecam specialty cameras unit. Globecam is renowned for creating a range of ground-breaking devices that have entertained viewers all over the world with footage captured from exciting new angles and perspectives.

The innovative technology used facilitates viewers with an incredible experience at every turn, as well as getting an up-close look at the drivers in action during the broadcast. 

Over the weekend of Friday 29 October, the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship season returned to the track at Sydney Motorsport Park for the Bunnings Trade Sydney SuperNight. The races for Round 11 kicked off the first of four consecutive jam-packed weekends of the drivers going back-to-back at Sydney Motorsport Park – only this time, four of the races were held at night under the lights! Since the championship’s inception in 1960, only 12 of 1074 races had been held under lights before the weekend. 

The events are broadcasted live each weekend on Fox Sports and streamed via Kayo, along with the Bathurst, Sydney Motorsport Park and Gold Coast rounds being broadcast to the Seven Network

John Newton, CEO of Gravity Media commented: “We’ve worked with Supercars for seven years and we’ve recently signed a new contract which takes us for another five years. We are looking forward to taking the sports to new horizons with new technology and always trying to push the boundaries with what we’re able to deliver.”

“The holistic turnkey solution that Gravity provides Supercars is vital to our production. They are a one stop shop for us with detailed outside broadcast with the Bathurst 1000 with over 160 individual cameras across track cameras, on board cameras, specially cameras, RF cameras, helicopters. And of course the globe cam in car system delivering crystal clear HD pictures out of vehicles traveling up to 300 ks an hour.” said Nathan Prendergast, General Manager - Television & Content at Supercars Australia.
