Iritrack is a safety instrument and must therefore be connected directly to the battery.

Iritrack enables real-time monitoring of positions and tracking of competitors, thereby making it easier to follow the race.

Iritrack enables you to transmit qualified information to the race headquarter (PCO) in real time. In the case of a problem, you can be pinpointed by the organization and even talk with them.

Fields of application are as follows:

  • Triggering or requesting emergency help in case of a serious incident (for you or for another competitor),
  • Transmission of an alarm and/or telephone contact with the PCO.

There are 2 possible modes:

  • Transmission of an alarm and/or telephone contact with the PCO,
  • Automatic: if a brutal shock or a prolonged stop of the vehicle is detected, the system transmits an alarm message to the PCO indicating your GPS position. With the telephone function, the PCO can contact you without any action on your part (automatic receiver pick-up and inbuilt microphone) to establish a dialogue.

A 1500€ deposit will be asked for the Iritrack.

Sentinel is a safety instrument and must therefore be connected directly to the battery. Sentinel is a safety system fitted to all racing vehicles. It enables to warn the competitors on the following cases:

  • The vehicle behind wants to overtake: when the driver of a car or truck presses on the push-button control, a signal is transmitted to the competing bike/quad/car/truck that he wants to overtake (range: 150 meters). The driver about to be overtaken receives an audible warning.
  • Accident warning alarm: if a vehicle represents a danger to competitors arriving on the sport (concealed behind a dune, rollover after turn), the pilot must press the two alarm buttons on his Sentinel. Then coming competitors are thus informed by an Audible Buzzer plus a Flashing Light.
