SPECIALISATIONS

On an everyday basis throughout France, in Spain, Switzerland and Belgium, Carrus and its teams deliver a slick and efficient bet processing system. This dependable organisation, with a rich history of expertise, provides a round-the-clock service managed by the people who form the heart of the company. Sales professionals, logistics experts, technicians and engineers work in unison to ensure this complex process works like magic: transporting, installing and maintaining systems, welcoming and serving bettors, promoting and energising bets and racecourses, processing bets and calculating dividends in real time.

DEVOTED TO HORSERACING COMPANIES

For more than two centuries Carrus has acted as the right arm of French horse racing companies. This longstanding, daily presence has laid the foundations of a partnership which transcends mere commercial transactions. Carrus deploys its energy and expertise to breathe new life into racecourses and set them firmly on a future course, so that Pari-Mutuel betting forever remains a French institution and an exemplar to the rest of the world.

SERVING THE BETTING PUBLIC

Acting as an interface between bettors and French horseracing companies, Carrus capitalises on its strategic position to develop an even greater understanding of its customers and serve the needs of a diverse racing public. Reaching out to bettors, serving our racegoers on diverse levels, developing ground-breaking technology to meet these new demands, and energising our sales force, are just some of the objectives Carrus strives to achieve on a daily basis.

PRESIGIOUS GRAND PRIX

The prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Prix de Diane, and the Grand Prix d’Amerique are just some of the major events that play their part in promoting the excellence of French horseracing.
Year after year, Carrus works in close collaboration with the PMU and other operators to make these prestigious events an international success. Carrus offers up the full gamut of its services to the capital’s racecourses to enhance the customer experience and keep bets running smoothly, even at peak times.

BETTING OPERATOR

At San Sebastian racecourse in the Spanish Basque country, Carrus not only ensures bet placement runs smoothly at the race track, but also extends its services to off-track betting. Exclusive supplier of horseracing betting systems in the Spanish Basque country, Carrus also operates some twenty high-street betting shops in Irun, Bilbao. Carrus therefore supports its partners across a range of responsibilities such as organising races, track maintenance and general security at the track.


ORGANISATION

Carrus and its teams provide daily bet-placement services throughout France and abroad. The company is organised across 9 regional divisions in France, managing some 250 race tracks and more than 1,950 race meetings every year.
