A1 GP to dominate the airwaves

2006-01-25 16:05
The qualifying session on Saturday January 28 will be broadcast live on SABC3 between 14:00 and 16:00, while Sunday's main race will be screened from 13:00 to 16:30 on the same channel.

The race, contested on a 3.2 km street track, looks set to provide plenty of drama right from the start - which is opposite Natal Command in Snell Parade.

Running in a clockwise direction, the circuit should see an initial blast of acceleration down to a very tight first corner. This is a right-hand hairpin out of which the cars will accelerate flat-out back up Snell Parade and then snap left into Argyle Road with a left/right chicane breaking its westward flow.

Ukhozi FM will carry live broadcasts of the series and hopes to create a keen interest in A1 racing through build-up programmes from January 27 involving scene setting, live crossings, profiles, interviews and ticket give-aways

The vast majority of SAFM?s prime sports programmes over the race weekend will be broadcast from the track. Lotus FM has also embraced this historic moment and broadcast of its main shows will also be based at the track for the weekend.

The stations will give away tickets to lucky listeners from Wednesday the 24th onwards.

For those unable to make it to the race, the race will come to them with live crossings during the race from RSG, Ligwalagwala FM and Radio 2000.

Tickets for the race are available through Computicket. Click here for a map of the track.
