The German Motor Sports Association (DSMB) has commissioned motor sports communications expert Racecom to manage the implementation of communications systems at races.

Racecom chose an Oratis intercom system to serve as the heart of the communication system at the various motor racing circuits.

Two Oratis matrix frames, connected via fibre-optic cable, are installed at the race management centre and in one of the two Racecom trucks. The system was first used in the German Automobile Racing Series, the ADAC GT Masters.

In major races up to 100 portable radio devices are in use, each with its own unique identifier. They enable group calls, conferences and targeted individual calls. Team leaders at the pits and the track marshalls around the circuit also use them to stay in touch with the organisers.

A smartphone or tablet PC can be integrated into the communication circuit as a mobile Oratis subscriber unit over 3G. Once logged into the system, users can communicate with the race organisers regardless of their location
