Datatag is basically very simple. It makes the insured karts and equipment identifiable to the police in such a way that it is extremely difficult for the thief to overcome and so his risk level becomes unacceptably high. Datatag has made a major impact on reducing the number of stolen karts and has a 100% successful prosecution rate. Datatag is Thatcham Q listed and is a winner of International Frontline Award for security.
