Greenlight's coverage of this year's Southern 100 has once again brought this unique and uniquely popular event to the attention of a worldwide TV audience.

25 broadcasters around the world have shown three different versions of the race programmes to an audience of 442 million homes, covering the headline happenings in a race week that was packed with action and atmosphere.

However, large-scale TV coverage was never the intention. Greenlight's production of this year's event was intended to achieve best-ever DVD sales for the Southern 100 Motorcycle Racing Club, and that goal has indeed been achieved.

'The 2009 Steam Packet Southern 100 International Road Races delivered some of the finest racing seen around the Billown Course in its 54-year history. Greenlight's involvement with over 40 cameras ensured no vital moments were missed and produced a programme that relives every drama packed race from the challenging 4.25-mile circuit.'

Phil Edge, Press Liaison Officer continued: 'The sales of the DVD have so far exceeded expectations and the world-wide television coverage is continuing to promote the Southern 100
and the Isle of Man to a massive audience eager to witness 'pure' road racing at its best'.

The 198-minute DVD includes all the action from race week at length, with cameras at trackside and on the bikes, and this year's racing was the fastest and closest in memory, with every race providing a series of thrilling duels between some of the best road racers in the world.

The DVD journey also goes into the paddock, to capture the spirit and atmosphere of road-racing's best-loved event known universally as – 'the friendly races'.

Secretary George Peach added: 'This DVD is undoubtedly a must have for any Motorcycle Road Race enthusiast, with superb coverage,and thrilling action from the riders.

The DVD is still available direct from the Southern 100 Club on www.southern100.com.
