Briefing for Team Managers
Race details and heat arrangement for the Euro B 2016 are now available at MyRCM!
We would like to remember all drivers the EFRA regulations for lap counting and inform that the time keeping system to be used at the Euro B, as approved by EFRA, will be MyLaps with software ‘RCM-timing’. This means that only official MyLaps transponders will be allowed!
8.12. LAP COUNTING PROCEDURE
8.12.1. At EFRA sanctioned events, the lap counting is to be done automatically by means of an automatic lap counting system and a transponder tted inside the cars body shell.
All competitors must supply their own Personal Transponder and are responsible for ensuring that the organizer is advised of the unique number.
8.12.2. The fitting of the correct transponder inside the cars body shell is the responsibility of the driver.
8.12.3. If a driver loses the transponder during the race, or if a transponder is not working, the lap counting supervisor must try to counts the laps manually.
8.12.4. If a driver forgets to fit the transponder during the race, the Race Director and the
lap counting supervisor will decide whether the laps are counted or not. There is
no appeal against their decision.
8.12.5. Transponders must be moved to a better position in the car on the race directors
instruction, if lap counting problems occur. Failure to comply may result in lost
8.12.6. It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure that no parts of his racing
equipment generates any form of signal that in any way interferes with the automatic lap counting system. If it is proven, that interference is being caused, the Race Director must instruct the driver to modify the offending item and if this does not prove possible, the driver will be excluded from the racing.
*Please notice this schedule is subject to change during the event.
