Vegas-to-Reno-General-Tire-8-8-13Always keeping the safety of off-road racers in mind, Casey Folks, director of Best in the Desert off-road racing association, and Steve Myers, from International Racing Consultants (IRC), today jointly announced Pass Alert, the latest development in safety equipment for off-road racing.  Folks heads up the largest off-road desert racing organization in North America. Myers is president of IRC, the company that provides tracking for most off-road racing operations globally. The Pass Alert system has been years in development, and will be in place for Best in the Desert’s landmark General Tire “Vegas to Reno” race August 15-17, 2013.

The way the system works is as a faster vehicle approaches a slower moving vehicle, a visual alert goes off letting the rider/driver know he is being approached from behind. At the same time, the Pass Alert system signals the driver of the faster vehicle that he is approaching a slower moving racer. Pass Alert systems will be placed on the fastest cars or trucks, and the slowest motorcycles, quads and UTVs.

The technology for the Pass Alert system was developed by IRC’s team of engineers, in concert with Folks and his team, and utilizes the latest in solid state electronics.

This breakthrough in safety is typical of the details and forethought Folks and Best In The Desert bring to off-road desert racing.
