Since taking ownership of a sophisticated hybrid powertrain that is the Honda NSX, three-time British Touring Car Champion (BTCC), Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden, has chosen Tracker Cat 5 Plus as the ultimate security option for his highly desirable supercar. Thatcham Quality Assured, Tracker Cat 5 Plus from Tracker, the stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) specialist, offers exceptional levels of security for high value, premium and luxury vehicles.
Could a tracker reduce my car insurance?
High power, hybrid sports cars are a magnet for organised criminals and in turn, insurers demand the installation of superior protection such as the Tracker Cat 5 Plus, which includes Thatcham Quality Assurance, before considering extending cover.
Gordon Shedden explains: “Not only does Tracker Cat 5 Plus tick all the insurer’s boxes, but it also offers me a supreme level of security because of its award-winning technology and the unique relationship Tracker has with the UK’s police forces. This combination significantly improves the chances of me getting my vehicle back, and quickly, should the unthinkable happen. No other SVR provider could deliver a solution that came close to this, making it a win-win for us all.”
How can a Tracker Cat 5 Plus device protect my car?
Tracker Cat 5 Plus is unrivalled in the industry. It uses a combination of unique VHF technology together with GSM and GPS and creates alerts when a theft occurs, even if the keys have been used. Early detection of theft, fast-tracking and the technology to overcome even the most professional and determined thieves is crucial, as many premium and supercars are stolen to order and quickly shipped abroad.
Andy Barrs, Head of Police Liaison at Tracker (part of the Tantalum Corporation) comments, “A champion like Gordon Shedden only chooses the best, so it’s no surprise that he’s chosen Tracker Cat 5 Plus’s unrivalled tracking and theft alert system. Not only does our tracking technology offer the greatest possible peace of mind for Gordon, but it also exceeds all the insurance requirements of the Category 5 standard.”
Unlike other devices, Tracker’s unique technology can locate stolen vehicles anywhere, even when they are hidden in a garage or shipping container. Tracker has been reuniting car lovers with their vehicles for 25 years, and it’s this expertise which makes Tracker the leader in stolen vehicle recovery. Tracker stolen vehicle recovery systems work like an electronic homing device. A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several dozen places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief won’t even know it’s there.
