TTPBA to live-stream Great Race event

The 52nd edition of the TT Great Race speeds off on August 22nd and it will be live streamed by the TT Powerboat Association (TTPBA).

This will be the second consecutive year, they have agreed to stream the event, in a bid to provide viewers with exclusive footage of the marine, inter-island event.

The race will be streamed via TTPBA’s Facebook page and along other social media platforms of supporting entities.

TTPBA president Marcus Gomez said “We are encouraging people to stay home and watch the race online. They will have coverage at different points along the entire course and we have commentators geared with GPS tracking and other technology to keep people updated throughout the entire race.
“It’s a bit of a challenge but last year we did it for the first time and learnt a lot from it. This year, we’re going to be expanding and improving on the stream from last year,” said Gomez.

To limit gathering of competitors, the race briefing will be held on August 19 and 20 to facilitate all contenders while maintaining physical distancing stipulations.

Thus far, 26 boats have confirmed participation.
