Its players are already tracked every step after they cross the white line at Kingsholm, but now it is the turn of Gloucester Rugby’s vehicles to have their performance scrutinised.

The club has teamed up with vehicle tracking technology experts Protrack and signed a deal which will allow it to monitor not just where its vehicles are, but how fast they are travelling, how much fuel they are using and how they are being driven.

Not unlike, you might say, the technology already worn by the club’s players to track their movements and performances on the field of play.

Tracey Pope, operations and support director, for the Quedgeley-based business, said: “Protrack is very proud to be have been chosen as the official tracking partners for Gloucester RFC which we have had a long standing relationship with for many years.”

Stephen Vaughan, chief executive of Gloucester Rugby, said the club had chosen Protrack because its technology allowed it to track all of its vehicles with ease – not least its team coach which when full carried several million pounds worth of the club’s most valuable assets.

Protrack is due to host an event for businesses on Wednesday (September 6) showcasing its products – including the very latest addition to its armoury.

Kevin Pope, Group managing director at ProTrack, said: “Most people associate Protrack with simply tracking vehicles however we have grown to be so much more than this.

“We have the worlds most advanced padlock, “The Prolock,” being unveiled which we were won a long awaited patent for just last week.

“We will also be showing off our lone working solutions, vehicle anti-theft devices and Prodometer which has been hailed as the fleet managers dream software by Arriva UK.”

The event will aim to give firms an insight into the world of telematics and GPS products that can assist companies with the day to day running of their fleet and assets.

The running order will be as follows – a 9am start for coffee and networking with an introduction to the firm’s products between 9.30am and 10.15am.

There will be a short break for refreshments before individual demonstrations of the products and a wrap-up in the firm of a closing statement and question and answer session from 11.15am to 11.30am. Numbers are limited to 100.
