Riedel – Our Partner for Communication

When running a Formula Student event, communication is very important. With multiple cars on the track the dynamic chief needs track marshals, scrutineers and timekeeping right on his ear. Thanks to Riedel Communications, we do not need to worry about that. Riedel has been the supplier of Radio and communications solutions for Formula Student Austria since the beginning. With the competition, our demands on our radio and PA systems grew, too. This year, using state-of-the-art digital radios and MediorNet fiber links we were again able to run the competition professionally and stress-free.
