Rob Weightman has dusted off his personal archive of motorsport programs to bring back to life fifteen years of thrills and spills. It’s a sad fact that the broadcasters failed to archive local motorsport TV programs created in the 80’s, 90’s and into the new millennium.
Rob Weightman having produced much of the motor racing from this period, has dug deep into his tape collection and has 525 programs which equates to 181 hours of video footage. Those who once walked the pit lanes of the big six SA race tracks or rally service areas, can now relive this era through video streaming on the internet.
Retro Rewind will be a dedicated web site for all motorsport fans covering nine categories over fifteen years. For an annual subscription of just four hundred and eighty rand, motor racing fans have unlimited access to the programs via Video on Demand streaming technology.
Viewer contributions will be used to digitize more tapes, grow the archives library and secure the safe keeping of this historical Motorsport video footage with MSA into the future.
