24 Hours of Le Mans gets off to a safe start with Flash TETRA two-way radios
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is a car race that has been held on the more than 13 kilometre long ‘Circuit de la Sarthe’ in Le Mans, France, since 1923. During the race, which takes place every year in the second weekend of June, the aim is to ride as many rounds as possible in 24 hours. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of the oldest and biggest races for sports cars. Some 300,000 spectators attend, 2,500 journalists are present and almost 200 million people follow the race on television, making the 24 Hours of Le Mans the biggest annual sports event in Europe.
The race management of the legendary car race has selected Flash Private Mobile Networks to install their radio communication system based on TETRA technology. For the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the organisation also rents the necessary communication equipment from Flash and relies on its technical support.
The extra capacity required for the major annual recurring events was taken into account when purchasing the TETRA system. TETRA was chosen to streamline the organisation and guarantee everyone’s safety. The TETRA system allows contact to be made between the track marshals, the emergency services, the race management, the intervention vehicles and the emergency services vehicles, among others. Over the weekend, more than 600 two-way radios will be used on the racing track.
