2017 is the year that the Medic Rig grew into it’s goals. We now have combined our knowledge and experience to build an emergency treatment center that meets the needs of the sport, riders, and our crew. The NEW “Alpinestars Mobile Medical Unit” is designed for the efficient transition from intake to release.
Our previous transportation was 20 years old, non-compliant and unreliable. We never missed a race, but we were towed into a few. Maintenance was wasting valuable dollars. The new 53 ft aluminum trailer and new-to-us Peterbilt tractor offer much more than fuel economy. The 3-axle frame allows for better weight distribution to accomodate the extra lbs as we now carry our three transport Mules.
The interior environment is maintained by four Heating & AC units, and the lighting is vastly improved. All Monitors and electronics were upgraded and medical equipment is permanently mounted. The larger onboard Generator easily powers demand. Bungee corded shelves have been replaced with cabinets to keep supplies organized and clean. The larger slide added square footage to the treatment area and we have additional seating in the Crew lounge.
The decision to press ahead with the new face was necessary and Alpinestars multi-year contract supporting our efforts came at the right time. It is with confidence in our abilities and the support of Monster Energy Supercross Series and the Lucas Oil Outdoor Motocross Championship that we look to a safer and bright future.
