Total Performance Data (TPD) will trial its in-running graphics on-course visualisation solution at this Saturday’s ‘QIPCO British Champions Day’ hosted at Ascot (16 October).
Spectators of European racing’s most valuable raceday will be amongst the first to see TPD’s in-running graphics visualisation, which follows successful trials by Sky Sports Racing during its broadcast of the William Hill Racing League.
The QIPCO British Champions Day is the latest meeting that will feature TPD’s in-running graphics – broadcast by Ascot TV – to drive on-course spectator engagement with the £4 million event featuring Europe’s richest handicap race.
TPD graphics will visualise data from the Longines Timing System into a live running order of the first 10 horses, the speed of the leader, the most recent three split times relative to average speeds and a distance countdown.
Will Duff Gordon, CEO of Total Performance Data, said: “We’ve been very happy with how our in-running graphics have been received throughout the Racing League as well as at a handful of meetings at Ascot and we’re pleased to take it a step further at QIPCO British Champions Day this month.
“It’s fantastic that Ascot will be using our on-course graphics technology on a permanent basis and with the likes of QIPCO British Champions Day, Royal Ascot and other big meetings taking place there throughout the year, thousands of racegoers will witness the technology first-hand, which will hopefully enhance their raceday betting experience.”
