Just to confirm that at the next round of the series our decoder will have been upgraded to an RC4 and anyone using an MRT transponder then the section will not guarantee your laps will be recorded correctly.
Anyone using an AMB\MYLAPS transponder will have no issue following the upgrade, your laps will be recorded as they are now.
Over the first 5 rounds there have been instances of drivers reporting missed laps after heats and finals, it is the drivers responsibility to have a working transponder in their vehicle (9 out of 10 the problem is that the transponder has come disconnected from its power source with the other odd one having a cable break at its casing). The race director will try and make you aware if you are missing from the timing at the earliest opportunity but it is down to the driver to listen and if they hear “car x is missing” and not hear the beep when they cross the timing line to bring there vehicle in and fix as they wish.
Those using section\club handouts then the section will endeavour to ensure they are working but it is up to the driver to return them back to the rack to keep them charged up! The Section does have 4 RC4 Hybrids which can be hired for £10 for the weekends meeting.
