Motorsports are popular events all over the world, including rally type ones. Faithful fans have known that there is almost nothing more exciting to watch than a competing car or motorbike running a tricky section of the track while spitting gravel and dust. 

At the same time, relevant data tracking and monitoring to ensure accuracy of results, timely technical and medical assistance, proper safety measures are vitally important.

According to KTVN press release data, the motorsports market revenue was USD 4,957 million in 2019 and will reach USD 8,792 million in 2025. At the same time, the increasing popularity inevitably causes a rising number of accidents, safety issues, challenges for event administrators, racing team managers and so on. It pushes national governments and event organisers to look not only to implement some stringent laws and regulations, but for present-day solutions to be adopted too.

To address the challenges in motorsports, the variety of Teltonika manufactured models can be successfully utilised depending on particular motorsport specifics, terrain, and meteorological conditions. For the sake of example, here we choose the SPECIAL category vehicle GPS tracker FMB204. Its distinctive features – a compact, robust, waterproof and dustproof IP67 rating casing with internal high gain GNSS/GSM antennas, and a high-capacity internal Li-ion battery.

Such properties will ensure that the device withstands elements driving on tarmac, gravel, mud, sand, pools of water, slopes, pits, humps, tree branches, leaves, grass, etc. in any weather patterns – from the scorching sun to torrential rain.
