In Depth Live Coverage Announced For BRKC 2016

This week the BRKC organisers agreed an expanded video media coverage package with Scruffy Bear Pictures for the 2016 BRKC. In previous years, the Live Stream was basic on Saturday, with some expanded broadcasting with additional cameras on Sunday.

However, for 2016, the entire BRKC will be covered in depth, with several extra camera angles, along with a producer and director on site at all times. New items include a breakfast show each morning, features like track guides and interviews with key drivers, constant high quality coverage broadcast live throughout the weekend, multiple commentators and pitlane reporters, as well as a generally higher production standard than in previous years.

Scruffy Bear director Darren Cook: “I wasn’t happy with last year’s coverage and we have some great ideas for this year’s BRKC. This year we are stepping up to another level. It’s going to be a beautiful event.”

Spectators around the world will be able to watch the live broadcast online with timing information overlayed – and the feed will be played on TV screens around Formula Fast so that nobody misses a moment of the on-track action throughout the weekend.

Double Champions Hackett & Boutens Return

2015 Dutch Red Bull Kart Fight Champion Boutens is feeling confident

Since the inception of BRKC in 2010, only two drivers have won the championship more than once. Lee Hackett was triumphant in 2012 & 2013 during the ‘multi-round’ incarnation of BRKC. In 2014 & 2015 it was Dutchman Ruben Boutens who claimed the overall victory. In 2016, the pair will meet on track for the first time since the 2013 Kart World Championship in Denmark.

Although Hackett has had a low key absence from BRKC, he is sure to be back on the pace quickly, having finished as the top British driver in the 2013 World Championship. Boutens on the other hand has been busy winning multiple international titles including the Dutch Kart Championship and the Dutch Red Bull Kart Fight – and is sure to be a force to be reckoned with.

The battle between these two giants of rental karting – as well as many more big names – will be fascinating to watch when BRKC 2016 gets started on the 15th of January.
