Catseye Rescue provides event organisers rescue and medical cover to deal with the unforeseen incidents that may happen during an event.
Motorsport can be dangerous and the unexpected can happen in the most diverse locations, be it in a forest or road rally, racetrack, sprint or hill climb events.
Motorsport UK stipulates the requirement and numbers of MSUK Rescue Units to be present at the event to provide optimum safety cover.
Most competing cars in motorsport are governed by safety regulations including roll cages, full safety harness and fire suppression systems, not forgetting the competitor's PPE.
Motorsport UK Rescue Units are crewed by a minimum of 2 licensed crew for rallies and minimum of 3 for speed events.
On all events it is a MSUK regulation that a Doctor or Paramedic is on the Rescue Unit.
The Rescue Unit is part of the event Safety Team and works alongside a Recovery Unit at an event. The Recovery Unit assists the Rescue unit at an incident and will recover any broken down or immobile competitor’s cars, which may end in diverse locations some distance from the road.
