timing chips

Judging race results has always been a nightmare at Lotus! Fast, wide-opened circuit, bunch sprints of 60 riders - impossible!

This year with Pedal Revolution and Aquaterra Energy, a timing system has been kinded loaned for the use at Lotus Cars Racing and we are working hard to iron out the issues so we have bullet-proof solution for 2016. Your help and feedback is appreciated in helping us revolutionise the Lotus Racing results.

  • Driving on the test track other than to reach the parking area
  • Parking on grass instead of the hard standing, (Mud on the test track is not conducive to testing cars)
