Australian Rallying history was made at the recent Sprint Auto Parts Rally SA, when for the first time in conjunction with Fernwood Estate Bed and Breakfast and Subareck broadcast the all the action live through the internet.

While SA Rally TV was not without technical issues, by Saturday night the broadcast was running smoothly and rally enthusiasts from all over Australia and New Zealand tuned in to watch the action from the Angaston Super Special Stage and join in a rigorous and entertaining chat session.

In addition action from the service park and the final podium presentation was also broadcast live on Sunday, as an experiment as to what can be achieved for future broadcasts, and thanks to RallyGraphix live in car video from several competitors was also published on

The feedback and support received from competitors, spectators, viewers and sponsors has been exceptional.

Due to the success of Saturday and Sunday’s broadcasts, the team’s attention is now focused on future broadcasts. It is envisaged that will be able to successfully broadcast future events with in car camera action, interviews and coverage of servicing. Planning is also underway for full stage coverage, with several cameras placed on stages to bring all the action live from the events direct to the internet.
