Next week’s Southern 100 road races will get the HD TV treatment for 2012 and will include on-bike and kerbside cameras which have always taken viewers into the thick of the action for which the Southern is renowned.

Manx-based Greenlight are responsible for the coverage and continue into the third year of their relationship with the race organisers.

"Greenlight Television have produced an excellent DVD covering every race for the last two

years, which have been very well received and with the added HD quality for 2012 the coverage will be further enhanced," said race secretary George Peach.

“In addition the world-wide TV coverage the Southern 100 receives helps promote and publicise the races and the Isle of Man, being seen in excess of 700 million homes, thanks to Greenlight’s global contacts.”
