REDTAIL TELEMATICS AND HESSGEN INC. GREEN INITIATIVES INCLUDE PUNISHING ROAD TEST OF NEW EMISSIONS REDUCTION TECHNOLOGIES DURING THE BAJA 1000 RACE

San Diego, CA (10/15/12) – This story has a lot of moving parts: the Baja 1000, GPS, emissions tracking, hydrogen combustion, the SEMA Show – not to mention saving the planet with Green technologies. These threads all come together during the unforgiving Baja 1000 desert race in Baja California, Mexico this November.

Win or lose, the two Hessgen vehicles competing in the race are changing the game – with clean Hydrogen technology, and emissions reduction data powered by REDTAIL Telematics. That’s because the REDTAIL VAM1 GPS tracking device that, for the first time, will be providing live, real-time tracking and location of the Hessgen Hydrogen Trophy Truck on the REDTAIL website during the race, is also able to send reliable, 10Hz emissions reduction data from the wilds of Baja to the REDTAIL DataWarehouse, a secure, high transaction-rate, buffered and multiply-redundant database.

“What Hessgen and REDTAIL achieve in Baja this November can have major repercussions for the multibillion dollar carbon credit marketplace,” says Brian Hess, Chief Technology Officer for Hessgen Inc. REDTAIL and Hessgen will be making a joint announcement about this major technology breakthrough at their SEMA news conference, Thursday Nov. 1, 10 a.m. in the REDTAIL Booth #11977.

“During this year’s Baja 1000, Brian Hess and co-driver Brian Salmon will be doing everything that we normally help our other Fleet customers avoid,” said Anna Amoresano, VP Sales & Marketing for REDTAIL Telematics. “Our VAM1 GPS device transmits and captures driver behavior data including harsh braking and excessive rotation – plus the occasional roll-over during the race. We’ll be tracking them live on our website.”

Another key technology is the Hessgen Hydrogen Road Boss™, a hydrogen injection system that is easily installed on typical gas or diesel engines, which allows car and truck engines to successfully use hydrogen as a combustion enhancement. By adding the Hessgen Road Boss the Trophy Truck effectively reduced fuel consumption by more than 20 percent during the team’s successful Baja 500 run in 2010.

Racing fans will be able to track the position of the Hessgen Hydrogen Trophy Truck live during the 2012 Baja 1000 race at www.redtailtelematics.com. “Achieving these technology milestones during one of the harshest and most grueling road races in the world is a powerful proof-of-concept,” added Amoresano. “If we can do it in Baja, we can do it anywhere in the world.”
