    The RARU "Race Across Russia” is taking place in July and it is known as the longest non-stop bicycle race, 9200 km from Moscow to Vladivostok. As a part of the sponsorship of this World Record Project, Unitech Europe will be providing the technical support for each car in the form of Unitech’s rugged industrial tablets (TB100) for navigation and online GPS tracking technology via their GPS and 3.75G network.

    RA-RU Organizer, Paul Bruck, said: "We are delighted that Unitech Europe is participating with this sponsorship and provide us with its advanced rugged industrial devices. The perfect equipment for extended organization and management, as all RARU cars will be traceable online using GPS senders and GPS tracking tool from Global tracking. An added value to support Andreas and Anatoly to manage another world record.”

    ”We are proud that we can include the RARU 2014 as one of our sponsorship projects. As a company we believe in pushing the boundaries, to ensure an superb experience for everyone using our Unitech devices and fulfilling the high quality demands of the market with our products and solutions. These goals can only be accomplished by adding more than the regular thing. Unitech can identify with the strength and the focus of the two bikers Andreas and Anatoly and therefore we believe in the accomplishment of a new world record. Rugged at extreme high pressure!” – Managing Director Unitech Europe, Jeffrey Huang.

    About RARU
    After the successful project RARU 2013, when 4 Austrian bikers drove the 9208 km non-stop from Moscow Red Square to Vladivostok to the FEFU University on Russky Island in 13 days 2 hours and 59 minutes, we want to take this year the next challenge. RARU 2014 is a World Record Project, a race against the time, non-stop, 24 hours per day. At RARU 2014 two Triathletes, one Austrian (Andreas Fuchs) and one Russian (Anatoly Nesterov) will manage the 9200 km, each of them 12 hours per day. The longest bicycle race in the world starts on July 22, 2014 at 6:00 early in the Red Square in Moscow.
