Timing Setup

 The X2 system offers many features to timers. With the automated timing setup timekeepers and tracks  can easily create results and publish them online. That way racers can check, analyze and share their performance data in their personal online account. The automated timing system also adds to the safety at the track.

Check out the system setup options:

All X2 components are connected to the X2 server. This center piece is the connection to the X2 Cloud and controls the entire system. The X2 Utility can be used to control the X2 server. The server has a built-in practice mode that allows automatic uploads of practice results to mylaps.com.

X2 Server, Decoder and Detection Loops 4

The decoder determines the exact time at which each transponder passes the detection loops. The decoder sends this data to the server.

X2 Server, Decoder and Detection Loops 3

Detection loops are embedded in the track’s surface at the start and finish line and at intermediate timing points along the track. A detection loop works as the system’s antenna. It picks up signals from the transponders and passes them through to the decoder.

The TR2 Transponders is the newest and most innovated transponder for motorsports. Reliable hardware, easy subscription management via Bluetooth and the Speedhive App and flexible subscription options to fit your needs.

X2 System 7

Orbits 5 is exclusively developed for X2 and optimized for timekeeping at all levels, from basic to semi-professional timekeeping.

X2 System 14

Optimize your race experience with real-time results! Get the most out of your race event by broadcasting live race results to your fans and followers. With the new Speedhive Live Timing Web you’re fully equipped for your upcoming races.

The X2 Charger Case is the ideal solution for timekeepers, race day organizers and race tracks. It can charge up to 30 X2 Transponders simultaneously and quickly – they fully charge in 4 hours.

X2 Charger Case 7

Via the X2 RaceLink add-on, racers will be able to receive 2-way communication into their vehicles. RaceLink works with MYLAPS X2 Direct Power Transponders. Live race data will be displayed on an onboard display. X2 Link offers additional features and is not required to do timekeeping only. However, we do encourage tracks and series to offer X2 Link as it adds to the racing experience of racers.

Enables racers, teams, broadcasters, and scrutineers to stream live 2-way data via RF over CAN Bus, like results, tire pressure, RPM, balance of performance, rev, cockpit temperature, battery status. Also allows live tracking of all vehicles.

The all-new X2 Driver ID is the number one solution for endurance racing to time multiple drivers from the same vehicle. Simplify your timekeeping with the X2 Driver ID and allow up to 5 different drivers to race in one single car. The racer only has to press the button of the X2 Driver ID to send TR2 Transponder based driver changes information from the vehicle to the timekeeper.

The X2 Driver ID

  • Identity up to 5 different drivers
  • Supports helmet plug and rotary switch
  • Has an extra connector for analog communication to the TR2 Direct Power Transponder, helmet plug and rotary switch
  • Brightness adjustment for night racing
  • Compatible with the X2 (Pro) Direct Power Transponder (Car/Bike) and the new TR2 Direct Power Transponder (Car/Bike)

The BaseLink sends out radio frequency signals, which are picked up by the X2 RaceLink antennas mounted on each vehicle. The BaseLink is installed at the start/finish line, on a position with a maximum line of sight, for instance on top of a finish arch. This will ensure an optimized wireless connection with the RaceLink installed on the vehicles.The BaseLink connects to the LoopBox, which also powers the BaseLink. The Ethernet port connection to the LoopBox ensures a high-quality signal.

Multi BaseLink setups

With a Multi BaseLink setup, you can cover the complete track, no matter what size, height difference, and terrain. Several X2 BaseLinks can be linked together and controlled by race control. Depending on the layout, environment, and location the number of X2 BaseLinks required may vary.

  • Full GPS tracking coverage
  • Live results updates at the complete track

Environmental Impact


At MYLAPS, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to minimize our environmental impact. As of 2022, MYLAPS is a carbon neutral company. Durability is key for product development, and our products can be used for several years in all weather conditions.

In Motorsports, our transponders can be used for many years, and we also develop transponders for electric vehicles.


Our Responsibility
++ X2 (system) 13


To be able to track lap times, you need a transponder. This transponder is attached to the vehicle during the race and is detected every time the racer passes a X2 System loop in the track.

The TR2 Transponder offers a better and smoother design with a Bluetooth connection to easily register and activate the device through your Speedhive app.

The TR2 Transponder is available as a rechargeable or a direct power version. The TR2 Transponder Direct Power is connected to the battery of the vehicle which powers the transponder. You only need to install the TR2 Transponder Direct Power once to your vehicle and you can then easily manage your subscription via the Speedhive App, while the transponder stays installed.

X2 Race Control

X2 Race Control is a fully integrated solution to control all the action happening on the track, using real-time data (GPS location, vehicle data) to help you raise the safety of personnel and racers.

X2 System


Timekeeping at car races is a tough challenge. Racers are demanding and results must be undisputed. MYLAPS offers the most reliable and accurate timing system: the X2 System. This system offers many features to car racers. For instance, they can check, analyze and share their performance data on their personal account online.

Car Racing

Timekeeping at high-speed events like motorcycle racing is a tough challenge. Speeds of well over 300 km/h are hard to measure and finishes can be extremely close. And, with the overtaking that takes place at motorcycle races, it can be difficult to keep track of everyone’s race position.

Motorcycle Racing

Kart racing events are often packed with training sessions, qualification runs and races. Making sure every racer is classed in the right category and racers receive the correct results is a challenging task - and requires a great timing system.


MX racing is one of the most popular racing disciplines. And we can see why: it is all about speed, dirt and jumps. Timekeeping can be tough in difficult weather conditions, especially in sports such as mx racing, lawnmower racing, snowcross and enduro, where racing takes place in mud or snow.

MX Racing

Why X2

 Automatic upload to MYLAPS.com

The X2 system automatically uploads practice data to a personal MYLAPS account on mylaps.com.

Supports multi-loop setups

A multi-loop set-up makes sector timing at the track possible. Race data can be segmented for each sector, allowing racers to focus and improve on specific parts of the track.

One system for all sports

With the X2 system it is possible to time all motorized sports, like car, motorbike, kart and MX racing*. This makes it possible to expand timing services to other markets.

*One transponder type per session

2-way communication

X2 Link will bring 2-way communication to the race track: data is not only transmitted from the TR2 Transponders to the System, but it will be possible to send vital race data back to the racer, which is displayed through their own on-board displays.

Track analysis & remote control

The system offers insight to system performance. Diagnostics can be accessed and controlled remotely when connected to the Internet. Timekeepers are able to set-up and monitor the system from everywhere: a perfect solution for checking in on free practice runs and race days.

Live timing

X2 enables live timing which makes it easier to broadcast real-time race data. Data can be published on displays on the track, on websites or via mobile apps and third party applications.

Develop custom apps

A Software Development Kit is available with the X2 System, which enables developers to build custom applications.

Remote support

The X2 System is characterized by the high build quality and ease of use. Still, issues may occasionally occur. When connected to the Internet, online support via the X2 Cloud is at hand.
