Dakar Rally 2017

Car Racing

GLOBECOMM has partnered with Curtis Mobile & Inmarsat to support, once again, the Dakar Rally.

With the addition of Paraguay, the Dakar will visit the 29th country in its history, the 5th on the South American continent. Then the rally will head for its longest stay so far, in Bolivia, and more specifically the capital city of La Paz. Argentina, which has been a part of every edition since 2009, will be the theatre for the final battle, to be decided in Buenos Aires.

Together, Curtis Mobile, Globecomm and Inmarsat are providing communications for several racing teams, among them, Red Bull KTM Factory Team, Toyota Gazoo Racing, Overdrive Racing and many more.

During the week prior to the race start, Globecomm & Curtis Mobile will be in Asunción, Paraguay to provide hands-on training and support with the deployment of the latest very high throughput technology for comms-on-the-move.
