Steph has been talking with Jim Stride regarding possible hire of our timing kit for the Ringwwod 2016 race. Jim also cam up to Blackbushe and had a talk with (i presume) Phil in the timing cabin.
This is the email i recieved from Jim today after an IM last night on FB from Steph
So as per early email exchange today with Alan and Jes, i have posted this here to get the ball rolling.Thank you so much for your help with the lap counting.
Our maximum capacity for the planned 2 pedal car races is 72 cars, probably end up with 68 cars actually racing on the day, so that is say 34 cars per race.
There is a tight turn around so all cars will need to be fitted and tested from 8am to 10.30am on Sunday, do you have enough transponders?
Race No1 Starts at 11.15am
Race No1 Finishes 1.15pm
Race No2 Starts at 2.15pm
Race No2 Finishes 4.15pm
The pedal car organisation will be making a donation to your organisation for your trouble, do you have a figure in mind?
Will be changing ftp passwords etc next week and will forward on when this has been done.
Our plan is to collect from each team a £20 deposit for the transponders which will be repaid on their return after the race. Does this sound about right.

It appears that an offer has already been made for use of our kit. I assume this was verbally done at Blackbushe.
We need to discuss and decide how we proceed with this and what we will charge.
Jes has already suggested
To my knowledge the TC4S Cryptag are £20 each so that would be £1400 + expensesI suggest we find out how much 70 tags cost and that - plus expenses - should be the cost?
We will need to ensure that Phil or whoever will run the second laptop (we should really have a 2nd laptop ready to run incase Phils fails) is happy to attend Ringwood.
We will need to find out what mat width is required 5M or 7M and then sort out logistics of transporting that and Arthur/Guinevere and batteries.
