Irish Rallying Safety Tracking System

The 4Rally Safety Tracking System Console

Motorsport Ireland is pleased to confirm the introduction of a Safety Tracking System to support affiliated clubs in achieving our strategic goals for increasing competitor safety, to support rally officials and to enhance the management of rallying activities in Ireland.
Throughout 2019 Motorsport Ireland conducted trials over several events, incorporating various terrains and volume of traffic on the mobile telephone network. Based on the satisfactory outcome of these trials the Motor Sport Council launched a tender process and following a comprehensive evaluation process, 4Rally, a company with many years’ experience working internationally with Safety Tracking Systems was the chosen service provider.
The system will assist organising clubs to minimise the response time to any crew that may require medical assistance while competing in their events and there is also the possibility for crews to send messages to the control room regarding road-blockage or fire. The system will see the introduction of a control room into each event which will enable the clubs to run the events as efficiently as possible and Motorsport Ireland will provide an experienced person at each event to assist the club. The system delivers a complete overview of the vehicles in near real-time showing current vehicle data: speed, vector of direction, start/stop reporting, distress buttons messaging, zone alerts, etc.
Donegal Mini Stages on 25th January 2020 will be a pilot event where the Safety Tracking System will only be used on the day of the rally (not reconnaissance), with more detailed processes and procedures information being provided to clubs and competitors following that event. There will be no deposit or pre-authorisation on a credit card required on receipt of the unit. However, should the unit be damaged or lost, the competitor will be invoiced for the replacement value by Motorsport Ireland.
