Galileosky devices are used in “Silk Way” – one of the largest rally competitions in the world. The ISF RACING team installed Base Block Iridium devices to track their cars.
When the team knows where the car is located, it is easy to control the process and make difficult decisions in case of an emergency. Rally routes often run outside of a GSM connection coverage. In such conditions, 99% of the equipment simply does not work. That is why the team chose Galileosky units.
The “Silk Way” Marathon, an international rally marathon that has been held since 2009, takes place in Russia, as well as in Central Asia and China. In 2019, the marathon started in Irkutsk on July 6 and the drivers headed to Lake Baikal – the deepest lake on the planet, where they rested in the first rally camp. The route of the race includes new locations: high-speed sections of Eastern Siberia, the taiga forests of Russia, the steppe roads of Mongolia, the plains of China and the sands of the Gobi Desert.
The rally finishes on July 16 in the picturesque Dunhuang – the city at the foot of the high dunes.
