Track safety guidelines and regulations
In recent years, major steps have been taken to make racing safer. Track safety has become an important spearhead for governing bodies, with new guidelines and regulations issued to circuits around the world. The way in which race control responds to a dangerous situation is vital to reduce injury and mechanical damage. The MYLAPS X2 LED Panels are designed with advanced features such as remote maintenance and individual panel background light sensitivity and meet the MYLAPS renown standards of durability and reliability.
Trackside marshalling combined with on-board flag signals
MYLAPS, the inventor of automated sports timing, introduced X2 Race Control: the next level in Race Control that can be used as stand-alone solution or fully-integrated with current MYLAPS timing systems. Part of the X2 Race Control portfolio are the X2 LED Panels, to show flag signals along the track, which is a powerful add-on to marshalling operations. Up to 254 flags can be stored, including common flags like green, red, yellow, safety car, blue, mechanical, oil slick. The trackside marshalling via X2 LED Panels can be combined with on-board marshalling on dashboards: drivers receive sector-based or personal flag signals on their dashboards via the X2 RaceLink Club or X2 RaceLink Pro.Learn more about X2 Race Control
