What’s Rally Assistance all about?
With the costs of rally bikes, entry fees, flights, time away from work, many competitors feel the extra cost for assistance is a luxury they can’t afford. Raid Tec have built a vast amount of experience in this area from competing in rallies since 2010 and are extremely well established and respected in the rally world for their ‘Personal Approach' to rally assistance. Providing support at not only Major Rally Events, such as the infamous Dakar Rally, but also at many of the smaller events, such as the well-known Tuareg, Hellas, and the Serres Rally.
Why is Assistance a good idea?
Totally exhausted, after a hard day’s riding, with the same again tomorrow, the last thing you want to do is start changing tyres and servicing your bike when you get into camp. But, the benefits of a good assistance team are much more wide reaching than that. The logistics of rallies can be quite daunting, especially for a first timer. Your bike needs to be built to the correct technical spec, the safety equipment needs to meet requirements, your paperwork needs to be in order, you need to understand your Road Book and navigation equipment, you need to carry the right tools and spares and you need back-up tyres, mousses and spares to be available when you need them and so on… Having someone with you who has all the knowledge and technical ability to help you with any of these issues is priceless and takes away the stress so you can concentrate on your riding, and enjoying the event which is why you are there in the first place.
We even offer free Road Book and GPS Tuition day to our customers!
Getting your bike, kit and yourself race ready before the event is also very important. We can recommend you get your service work, modifications and further technical information from Martin Wittering at Torque Racing Services Ltd.
Did you know, we were the largest Assistance Team at the Hellas Rally the last 3 years!
