Hi Peter



Skytag make a GPS/GPRS based vehicle tracking system – there is a purchase cost and then a subscription. If your vehicle is stolen or moves for example when you have told them you are on holiday they track it and inform the police. We have fitted it to both our 110’s.



Skytag have agreed to sponsor us on the Mac this year. Part of the deal is that anyone ordering a Skytag using the code Mac4x4 gets the normal price of £249.99 reduced down to £89.00 and for every unit purchased at this rate they will donate £15/unit to our Macmillan sponsor account. Obviously the benefit to them is more people trying the product and signing up to the subscription.



There is a bonus for everyone taking part in the Mac this year who buys (or already has) a Skytag. They will provide a web login that will allow followers of that team to see where the vehicle is now and where it has been. This would be an open portal with any number of vehicles on it, similar to the one they did for the Peking Paris rally where they tracked 62 vehicles. This includes a picture of the vehicle, team name, sponsor links etc all when you hover over the vehicle icon or on the listing name on the left hand side. Anyone participating in the Mac who buys a Skytag unit before the event (or already has one), will get the live tracking for the challenge free. This could turn the event in to an armchair spectator event, giving it more interaction and exposure.

Their website is http://www.skytag-gps.co.uk/.



We are in the process of developing our new 110, which we will be using on this year’s Mac 4x4, into an expedition vehicle (a good part of the modifications will be completed before the Mac – I hope). Land Rover Monthly are going to do a feature on our vehicle when it is complete and have agreed to mention any of our suppliers who sponsor us on the Mac. Skytag is our first success. We have the option of having our vehicle on the LRM stand at their show at Stoneleigh in August – and Skytag have invited us on to their stand for any shows we attend this year too. So we hope to generate a fair number of sales at £15 / unit sponsorship.



We are keen to get the message out to all teams on the 2011 Mac 4x4 that if they already have or buy a Skytag before the event that they can have vehicle tracking enabled. I know from speaking to Pete Restall that the Mac 4x4 website isn’t ‘team specific’ in any way Also, I know not all the teams are on the Mac 4x4 Forum. Is it therefore possible to get an e-mail sent to all 2011 teams via you (or directly from us) or to get a notice put on the Mac 4x4 website?



The live tracking could help many of the teams with fundraising, or at least add a bonus to their supporters – hence that is why we are keen to get the Skytag message out to all competitors.



If it would be easier to discuss this then please give me a call on 07866 772950.



Thanks & best regards
