InterContinental Rally 2012

Ninja Tracking Systems are very proud to announce that one of our trackers will be used on the Intercontinental Rally 2012.

We cannot think of a more arduous way of actually testing our trackers in about the most rugged terrain available. The Rally starts in Almeria Spain on 30th January 2012 and finished in Dakar Senegal  12th February 2012. The event is an internationally organized low-budget, long-way rally. It passes through two continents and it is geared to cater both for racers and adventurers, with 2 main classes, 2 contest categories in each main class and 6 vehicle categories in each and every contest category available.

The main contest classes are Full Range Rally and Lite Rally. They are both running together under the Intercontinental Rally 2012 event.

The person competing with the Ninja is Gavin Hockey of G&H Motorcycles Colchester. We are extremely envious of Gavin but obviously wish him all the luck in the world…

Watch this space for updates on Gavin and his teams progress as they work their way through the desert! As a taster we have some images below of Gavin on the start line of last year’s event…
