All three days of the race, starting on Classic Car Friday and wrapping up with the King of the Hill Finale on Sunday Afternoon, will be available online for any viewer with an internet connection. Twelve cameras will be placed along the 1.9km Simola track to catch the |action, while a dedicated camera at the start will broadcast every competitor’s launch off the line.

Another camera will roam the pit complex to offer live updates from two presenters. Popular radio personality and motoring journalist Jacob Moshokoa, together with Jaguar Simola Hillclimb race veteran Dawie Olivier, will be the voices of Jaguar Simola Hillclimb 2019 and will inform viewers of all the happenings on track and behind the scenes.

Jacob is an authority on all things motoring with regular on-air slots on the 702 and Cape Talk radio stations. Having contested every Jaguar Simola Hillclimb until now, Dawie’s intimate knowledge of the event and competitors is unparalleled.

Aside from the live commentary, viewers will benefit from live timing and competitor leader boards, making it easy to keep track of which car and driver combination is placed in individual sessions, including respective grand finale runs.

Viewers can tune into Jaguar South Africa’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/JaguarSA1at any time over the course of the race weekend, which runs from the morning of Friday, 3 May, to the afternoon of Sunday, 5 May. The broadcast will also run 24-hours a day outside of the live action for viewers to catch highlight reels and a selection of on-demand content.

Jaguar also invites Gauteng residents to its newly-built Jaguar Land Rover Experience facility in Lonehill, Johannesburg to watch the live stream in its 52-seater cinema and on various screens throughout the premises.

Guests can enjoy the non-stop racing action, or partake in a number of complimentary vehicle test drives on the various Experience tracks including the Skidpan, Dynamic Handling Pad, Land Rover Adventure Park and Kingsley Holgate Expedition Trail. Kiddies are also welcome to drive miniature electric Jaguar F-TYPEs and Land Rover Defenders free of charge, and the on-site TLC restaurant and its viewing deck will be open for business as usual.

First held in 2009, the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb celebrates its 10thanniversary this year. Jaguar has been the title sponsor of the event for the past six years and on each occasion has used the opportunity to demonstrate the high-performance capabilities of its various product ranges.

For the 2019 edition Jaguar has enlisted five well-known racing drivers to take on the Simola Hill and rival competitors alike. World Champion karters and former professional race and rally drivers Mark and Gavin Cronje will challenge for the overall win in the road and supercar category in a pair of identical Jaguar F-Type SVRs. This thrilling race within a race will finally reveal which brother is quickest after a decades-long rivalry between the two.

A fleet of three all-electric Jaguar I-Paces will contest the EV and Hybrid class, with ex-Touring Car aces Mike Briggs, Deon Joubert and Shaun Watson-Smith at the wheels. The trio comes armed with more than 20 South African and international championship titles between them. Ultimate bragging rights are on the table for the quickest of the three, who famously battled door handle to door handle in a variety of tin-top racing series throughout the 1990s.

The 2019 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb also marks the South African debut of the new 405kW F-Pace SVR. A pair of Jaguar’s highest-performance SUVs are entered with journalists and skilled drivers Ashley Oldfield from Cars.co.za and Marius Roberts from Ignition TV set to challenge for Bakkie and SUV category honours.

SuperEpic to launch limited edition physical edition

The critically-acclaimed indie action game, SuperEpic, will be offering a limited edition physical version of the game with special goodies inside on 20 March.

Published

on

Numskull Games has announced that SuperEpic, a Metroidvania-style adventure game from indie developer Undercoders, is coming to retail for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on 20 March.

Taking the helm of a raccoon and a burger-eating llama, players embark on a quest to save video games as we know them by ramming into the headquarters of RegnantCorp – a video game development company that controls an Orwellian society by addicting citizens to their free games.

SuperEpic is a non-linear, fast-paced action adventure game, heavy on exploration and combo-based combat. Uncover a conspiracy as you explore a surreal castle-like office full of enemies, challenges, secrets, and corporate pigs.

The SuperEpic: Badge Collector’s Edition includes a physical copy of the game for either PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch, as well as a collector’s display box featuring 6 high quality pin badges, based on characters from the hit indie game.

The game is limited to 5,000 copies on the Nintendo Switch and 3,000 copies on the PS4, so this is sure to be a sought-after collector’s item.

Continuing the satirical theme on microtransactions, levelling and powering up is based on an in-game economy system (there aren’t any real-life microtransactions, of course)

Numskull games provided the following information on features:

  • Two game modes – play a classic single-player story mode with handcrafted levels, or a rogue-like mode which procedurally generates the game map to make each run completely different
  • Cross-media experience – hidden QR codes launch mini-games to play on your mobile when scanned, uncovering secrets in the main game
  • 8 hours of gameplay – a first run on the story mode will take roughly 8 hours, but the procedural mode provides endless fun
  • 16-bit era graphics – super fluid animations and spectacular bosses, all represented in gorgeous ‘Neo-Geo’-esque 16-bit pixel art
  • Original storyline and soundtrack – a story featuring unique, strong characters with plenty of humour and personality, and a soundtrack from SonoTrigger (‘Rise & Shine’, ‘Blue & Bullets’, ‘Supermagical’)
  • Completionists – tons of achievements & secrets to unlock for completionists
  • Micro-transaction satire – satirises modern gaming practices, with a huge enterprise run by greedy business-pigs which has gradually replaced all the fun in video games with adaptative and addictive algorithms to control people’s minds
  • Latest patch on disc/cartridge – the latest update, which includes improvements to the map system, are included on the physical versions for collectors and preservationists

SuperEpic is available digitally on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC now. The Badge Collector’s Edition & standard physical edition for PS4/Switch are available stores including Geek Store, Amazon, and Game UK on 20 March.
