The LPB Races to Mongolia
“The mechanically robust LPB-7-27 is a perfect match for our rugged go anywhere portable CloudCase® and provides us with reliable high gain cellular signal wherever it its deployed”
Martin Langmaid, SlingShot6 Technical Director
Every year teams of small 1000cc-or-less cars race thousands of miles across the globe from the UK to Ulan Ude to raise money for charity in the ‘Mongol Rally’. In summer 2017 Team Rainbow Dash, a team of three Englishmen, aimed to complete this feat and yet maintain connectivity despite the remoteness of their jour- ney. They wanted to be able to still engage with their regular work and upload photos and videos of the trip and keep those following back at home updated. The team were undertaking this incredible journey to raisemoney for Macmillan Cancer Support and Cool Earth.

The CloudCase® provided by SlingShot6 utilising our LPB-7-27’s enabled the team
to stay connected online over their journey.
The team raced over 19 countries, covering 15,000km over 35 days and throughout this feat they were able to remain in contact with those back at home, share photos and videos, check out places to stay along the route and call for help whenever they needed to.
Team Rainbow Dash became the communications hub for other teams along the journey helping them stay connected, they were even able to organise a party in Almarty, Kazakhstan!
Through their impressive feat, the team were able to raise over £2,000 for charity with the help of SlingShot6 and Panorama Antennas!
