For the Raid the North Kimberley race, we have tried out a new, innovative, GPS Tracking system by a Quebec based company called Competitio. The Competitio boss, Gerald Plamondon is a racer himself, having captained team Kabu-Kicho in our Stoneham event, so we see this as a good fit!
For RtNK, 10 teams carried units that offered LIVE tracking of their position on the race course, as their data was downloaded at each TA. The remainder of team's tracking was made available after the data was downloaded at the races conclusion on Sunday night.
Our plan is to perfect this method of race coverage in time for Raid the North Extreme, just three weeks away, during which the technology will be available to offer race followers REALTIME info about teams locations for the whole of the 6 day race!

Thanks very much to Bart Jarmula of team Wild Rose who, even in the midst of fighting for the lead, snapped some great shots that he shared with us! Thanks also to Chris Elder of Kimberley Alpine Resort (and his staff!), both for his photos and for his tireless effort in making the Kimberley Raid a hit.
