The old timing equipment was manufactured in 1979 & donated to DLRA by the SCTA. in 1997. It was first used by us in 1998. It is a very costly system to maintain & very tempermental. Hence the new timing system.

I know what you mean about being pestered by people asking about speeds, my brother had a few people ask about runs that had happened hours before. When told he didn't have that information (he's the starter, he has no need to know) they expected him to radio Cookey and find out :? .

From memory, the donated equipment was first used here at the 1995 International Speed Challenge when several Americans, including Al Teague, turned up to try our salt. That was 18 years ago!

:D
