Sports technology solutions provider Catapult Group International (ASX:CAT) has been named as the official supplier of race control systems to world famous motor racing organisation NASCAR.
The new multi-year agreement, which begins this season, will see Catapult supply its incident review and video replay system, RaceWatch ID, to Race Control and Competition officials for NASCAR’s top three racing series: NASCAR Cup Series, XFinity Series, and Craftsman Truck Series. NASCAR is the largest motorsport vertical in North America.
Implementing RaceWatch ID will allow NASCAR officials to make swift and accurate decisions through the real-time integration of multi-camera video, race radio, positioning and telemetry data, all time synchronised and available in a single solution.
Catapult’s solutions enable real-time on-site and remote collaboration with fast file transfer, giving NASCAR officials the capability to review each incident with greater context and efficiency than ever before.
We are honoured to add NASCAR to our customer base of elite teams and leagues around the globe. Our comprehensive software solutions and our dedicated employees continue to earn the trust of customers who rely on us for mission-critical decisions,” said Catapult CEO Will Lopes.
“NASCAR is one of the top motorsport organisations in the world. Collaborating with them strengthens our solutions and highlights the distinctiveness of the services we offer.”
NASCAR joins the FIA which uses RaceWatch to officiate and manage races in the FIA Formula One World Championship, FIA Formula E, FIA World Endurance Championship, and the FIA World Rally Championship.
“We are excited by the potential that Catapult’s solutions provide us to drive the future of NASCAR as a leader in leveraging data and insights to make more informed decisions in our race control,” said Elton Sawyer, Senior Vice President, Competition.
