It’s the last even of the year, and it will decide who wins the 2010 V8 Supercars driver championship. With Triple 8 Team Vodafone already taking out the teams championship, it’ll be a hotly contested race between James Courntey (2,932 points) & Jamie Whincup (2,879 points), with Mark Winterbottom (2,729 points) not far behind.
This is only the second go round for the Sydney track, and if last year’s efforts are anything to go by it will be a great race – a tight street circuit nestled into the Olympic Park precint of Homebush with little room for error and lots of fast loud cars.
One of Seven’s biggest sports broadcasts of 2010 is coming.
131 cameras in-car, on-track, in concrete kerbs, in the air and in the pits for Seven’s coverage of the second Sydney Telstra 500, the final two races in this year’s V8 Supercar Championship across 4-5 December. 38 in-car cameras in eight V8 Supercars, plus the Safety Car and a further 43 in-car cameras in cars competing in other races across the 500 weekend.
More than 50 kilometres of broadcast cabling – enough to lap the 3.4 kilometre circuit more than 15 times. Production crew of 159.
Coverage being broadcast in 130 countries across Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, throughout South-East Asia, the United States, and across Europe and North Africa.
