>From what I was told from talking to the on-site IT guy for Caterham, all
teams are provide an MPLS connection back to their respective factory. I
seem to recall was an insanely small connection for what is the "pinnacle of
motorsports"... something like 4mbit or so.

Admittedly this was input from only one team, and a "lower tier" team at
that. This was also last year (2011).

I remember being distinctly surprised at the relatively low amount of
bandwidth they were provided at the track.
