Cobalt Rescue

image1

Based on a Land Rover 130 Defender (Quad-tech bodied) standard 3.5 V8 petrol engine with an LPG conversion; Given its multi-surface flexibility combined with a V8 engine, it has proved very useful at all other types of events and covers every kind of 4 wheel motor sport event from a clubman Comp Safari to Internationals such as the World Endurance Championship (UK) and World GT1 (UK) races we covered in 2012.

Usually crewed with up to 5 persons plus a Paramedic / Doctor. 

All the crew are trained in the use of pre-hospital medical gases of Oxygen and Entonox plus the use of the unit Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Cobalt rescue carries a lot of the equipment found on county fire service rescue tenders including, fire fighting media and a combined hydraulic cutting and spreading tool. Similarly, it also carries a comprehensive range of equipment similar to that of front line ambulances, tuned for the motor sport environment.

Ranges of communications systems are available including rally 81, race 169, hands free phone, Rescue Services inter-safety unit radio system to link it with our other Rescue Unit, Stage Safety Units and Recovery unit.

 This unit is located in the East Midlands area and will happily cover all of the UK. 

Rutland Recovery

image2

Based on a 300 tdi Land Rover 110 station wagon utility, which gives us a five seat cab with much needed van storage behind. The unit has evolved from the Forest 19 radio vehicle which we have owned for many years. We carry all the specified equipment that is laid down by Motorsport UK (our governing body), this includes firefighting and first aid equipment, vehicle tools , a large selection of straps shackles and ropes. 

To facilitate recovery of vehicles the unit is fitted with a 9500 Superwinch on the front and in the rear a larger capacity Superwinch Husky is used as the main recovery tool and also to power the custom built foldaway (suspend lift ) recovery crane. The 110 is fitted with heavy duty suspension and steering for durability and off-road capabilities, future modifications include rear suspension air assist and an all-wheel lift dolly set for 4wd rally cars. Because of the extra electrical power needed for winches, beacons and radio equipment the unit is fitted with two large batteries and split charging system. All modifications and fabrication work were carried out in house in the Alldriveclassic4x4 workshops.

  This unit is located in the Midlands area and will happily cover all of the UK.   

Tiger Recovery

image3

  Based on a 2013 Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE. This vehicle replaces our Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 as it provides us with creature comforts such as heated front and rear seats and air conditioning. 

The vehicle is fitted with a split charge facility and a separate leisure battery to power the winch, beacons and radios so we are not reliant on the main vehicle battery. The winch fitted is a Superwinch Talon 12,500lb. We have also upgraded the underbody protection with rock sliders, sump guard and compressor guard. The standard tyres have been replaced with Goodyear Duratracs which allow us to traverse tougher terrain than normal.

The kit we carry allows us to support the Rescue unit during incidents that require us and we can recover cars that are a long way from the stages.

We have got MSUK and Dual band amateur radios fitted which give us coverage for events and also communications with other vehicles in the group. The Dual band radio is configured for VHF and UHF as well as some general purpose PMR radio frequencies so we can talk to marshals as necessary. If necessary, we also carry a CB radio.

We carry full lift equipment for 4 wheel drive rally cars in addition to the Harvey Frost crane we tow behind the unit. This allows us to provide a suspended tow either front or rear to the casualty vehicle even if it doesn't have wheels left. We also have a set of Collins/In the Ditch Dollies which allow us to support the other wheels of a vehicle if the transmission has seized. 

This unit is located in the Norwich area and will happily cover all of the UK mainland, plus the islands of Anglesey, Mull and Man.

EMU (Event Medical Unit)

  Based on a Renault Master LWB 3.9 tonne – 2.8 litre diesel engined chassis with a UVG ambulance body. 

EMU derives its name from the acronym Event Medical Unit and its equipment is based on the criteria set out by the National Association of Private Ambulance Services (NAPAS) for a class 2 ambulance with commonality to the Rescue Unit and SSU equipment standards.

EMU attends all types of motor sport events nationwide ranging from Sprint (useful for satisfying section S5.2.1); through to all manner of club to national championships plus National Autograss Sport Association (NASA) Autograss meetings up and down the UK providing essential medical cover. Usually crewed by 2 persons (3 for NASA events), all trained in the use of pre-hospital medical gases of Oxygen and Entonox plus the use of an AED, and can carry an MSA Paramedic / Doctor if required.

EMU also carries a comprehensive range of medical equipment similar to that of front line ambulances, tuned for the motor sport environment.

EMU is similarly designed to integrate with the associated Rescue Services Stage Safety Unit of Flashpoint Response plus Solent recovery, the SSU carrying similar medical equipment and typically using the same rescue trained crews, very handy for organisers looking for a cohesive safety package.

While EMU has been set up as an ambulance it must not be forgotten that the unit is not a business and that those involved are volunteers undertaking a sport they enjoy.
