Timing

This must go over the timing mat in order for the lap to be recorded. The transponder must be exchanged in the transition zone.  

Each team / Solo Rider will be provided with 2 transponders. 
Transponder #1 is just like previous years and will require a transponder holder to be attached to the RIGHT hand side of the fork – 4 fingers below the top of the spokes – The transponder must be exchanged in the transition zone from one team member to the other.

Transponder #2 will be a Helmet Transponder which is to be attached to the top / back of your helmet with the x2 cable ties provided. This transponder will be read by the overhead gantry.

We suggest for your team manager or yourself to bring along some snips to assist with cutting the cable ties to size.

If you already have a little black Transponder holder, please bring them along, as we can re-use these and issue you with more cable ties to swap them from left to RIGHT. (This can save you time before the event and help you be as organised as possible)

The transponder MUST be mounted on the RIGHT HAND SIDE of the fork and not removed until you come to a complete stop in the transition area.

The transponders are very expensive items and you will be accountable in the event of loss or damage

Please ensure ALL transponders are returned back to HQ after the event, and if you do not intend to re-use your holder, we would really appreciate these back also .Thank you

The Passing Rule

All riders are to keep on the inside line on all parts of the course. Faster riders are to pass on the outside line on all occasions.

Slower riders have the right of way and are not to deviate to make way for faster riders.

Faster riders are to clearly announce that they are coming up on slower riders.

Be aware of riders splitting away from a bunch to enter the transition area and of slower merging riders when leaving the transition area.

Transition

Riders will enter the transition zone through the Slow Down area and dismount on entry to the Transition Zone. Exchanging the transponder will take place in the transition zone and the new rider is to remount the bike only on exit from transition zone.

Entry onto the course proper will only occur when authorised to do so by the marshal. Failure to comply with this rule will see teams penalised.

Overall Results For anybody who can remember their transponder number and if it was one of the transponders from Motorsport Manawatu you have the ability to login and see each actual laptime for your event. Use your transponder number as your login and use the same for your password. Please do not change these as it will mean that no one else will be able to use the system. Please remember to logout when you are finished.  eg team Hotel Coachman uses mm16 for login and password.
