The Mint 400 announced today that is has launched a new tracking application with the primary goal of allowing the entire planet to watch “The Great American Off-Road Race” live online and on mobile devices. The Mint 400 has partnered with YB Tracking from the UK, who have built their business tracking global events in yachting, adventure sports, and expeditions.
“Following our recent success tracking car racing events in Europe and Asia, and the recent US-based King of The Hammers, we are thrilled to be involved in the biggest off-road race in the world! The Mint has a huge vehicle count for a single-day event which makes it both challenging and exciting,” stated Nick Farrell, CEO of YB Tracking.
During The Mint 400, tracking points will be transmitted every 2 minutes, with 30-second GPS fixes – giving great track definition for later playback. Live segment split times will be made available to the public, adding excitement for race followers who will be able to see just how many minutes/seconds are between each racer!
No, the racers will not pay for this.
Seeing the value in globalizing off-road racing, Mint 400 sponsors BFGoodrich Tires and Polaris RZR have stepped up to cover the cost of the new tracking system rather than passing the cost onto the racers!
