2020 Preparation for the 2020 series is already underway. I have developed a RFID chip timing system used in conjunction with your number boards. There will also be a app for both iphone and Android with living timing, results will be ready 10 seconds after you cross the line (subject to final confirmation). I will be testing it at the final round to collect live data for testing ready for next year (but not using it for results). There is also a new video capture for back-up purposes, this will be in use for all the categories. New course features are also planned hopefully featuring a new bridge you will be able to go over and under.
