Race Solutions Motorsport:
RACESOLUTIONS Motorsport is a professional, dynamic and diverse group of volunteers committed to delivering a quality service in the provision of Medical, Trackside, Safety and Incident Response services to all forms of motorsport. RACESOLUTIONS Motorsport is unique as it offers the most comprehensive range of equipment and people necessary to run a safe and successful motorsport event.
RACESOLUTIONS Motorsport was founded on the basis that there was a need within Australian motorsport to offer promoters the full range of services required to run a safe & successful event. One of the benefits of the RACESOLUTIONS Motorsport package is the integration of medical services across all trackside activity. The result is faster medical response times from medical crews expertly trained and experienced in trauma and or intensive care to begin assessing and treating injured drivers, riders, pit crews, support staff and officials. RACESOLUTIONS Motorsport has proven this strategy to be successful at the Mt Panorama Circuit in December 2007 at Drive Bathurst. On this occasion a Porsche driver, seriously injured at Forest Elbow was attended to by 2 Emergency Department nurses on scene within 15 seconds, providing immediate critical airway treatment and medical care.
