MAXSpeed Group moves to makes “Starts” safer for all Competitors at the US Grands
It was announced today that the 2011 US Rotax Max Challenge presented by Ocala Gran Prix would benefit from yet another enhancement aimed at improving both the quality and the safety of the event. For the first time in the history of the event, races will not only be started by a Start Light System, but speeds will be carefully monitored via Radar Gun.
Garry Lobaugh of MAXSpeed Group, which promotes the event, expressed his enthusiasm for this development. “Firstly, I have to thank our Marketing Partners, including Ocala Gran Prix, DeFrancesco Racing, RDD Motorsports and Keane Racing with Homestead Karting, as without their investment in the event many of these exciting innovations that we’ve been able to announce over the past few days simply would not be possible. Along with the selection of the Rotax World Final’s Race Director Nigel Edwards and the introduction of Video Marshalling, the implementation of the Inis CIK Start Lights along with a Start Line Speed Gun and Display visible from 100m away should ensure much better and safer starts for all competitors – something that has not always been the case in the past. Racers, teams and families invest too much time, effort and money to see their race end at the first corner.”
