NORRA will be using the RacingTraX / AlertTraX system for tracking and safety in this year’s Mexican 1000. The first thing to do is to go to https://www.racingtrax.com/rentals/norra.html then fill in your information.
RacingTraX will send a mounting kit that will include a power cable and RAM mount for Cars, Trucks and UTV’s. For Bikes and Quads the kit will include a power cable and cup bracket that the AlertTraX device fits down into. It will be the responsibility of the rider to mount the cup in a safe and secure location BEFORE arriving to tech. Bikes with out a charging system will need to turn in their tracker at the end of each day to be charged, the tracker will be re-assigned at the beginning of the next days stage. An instruction sheet will be included in your mailed package. Please place your order, get your mounting kit and read the instructions before calling with questions. All racers must have their power cable wired and mount installed before getting in line to go through tech inspection.
You will receive your tracker at registration where you will also go through a 2 minute mandatory education class on how to use the AlertTraX system. From there you will go back to your bike or car and install your own tracker. There will be RacingTraX staff at tech inspection that will verify power and proper installation.
The RacingTraX system has been providing reliable and accurate tracking and critical safety features since becoming available. Used in the USA and Mexico since 2014, the system supplies a whole host of features that increase safety for users.
