It takes a whole lot of equipment and sponsors to put on the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix. For 10 years BC Superweek and the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix have relied on the support of Go Wireless, the same people who provide 2-way radios to the CFL, NHL and PNE.
Go Wireless is Vancouver’s “one-stop-shop” for mobile communications products and services. They specialize in the sales, rental and repair of Motorola 2-way radios and offer a complete selection of wireless technologies including: conventional two-way radios, trunked radio, PCS handsets, and Mike-branded Motorola iDen digital phones.
According to owner Jim deCarle, Go Wireless supplies radios to BC’s biggest venues as well it’s most important special events.
“At the Vancouver Convention Centre, Rogers Arena and BC Place, our radios are used for security, set-up, medical, food and beverage and for helping keep everything running smoothly. We also keep teams in the CFL and NHL communicating from coast to coast.”
“We’ve been supporting every BC Superweek races for over 10 years now and it’s been a blast,” says deCarle. “We’re proud to support local athletes and great events, and we’re so happy to see the Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix back in BC Superweek. In fact, the race is right in our backyard. We became a part of the Gastown revival three years ago when we moved our office to Gore and Powell, right above the fabulous Big Lou’s Butcher Shop.”
As Race Director Mark Ernsting points out, “Having Go Wireless on board as our official radio provider helps our operating team communicate efficiently during the race. Without them, we couldn’t run a world class event.”
