How does that work when road cars don't carry transponders?

Who could blame them for doing so?

Soon they might find out the rules are simply made up as they go.

Doubt it - the rules and penalties around speeding in pit lane have been in place and well-known for many years.

That has been in question for a number of years, as has the race administration. I agree the horse has bolted, as the protest period is long gone. But nothing wrong with proving the penalty was assigned erroneously, as it might prevent further poor snap decisions....like the penalising of drivers in the Phillip Island round who crossed a white line painted on the pit entry road, only after they had been spotted transgressing on the tv broadcast.

Capacitive sensors, same as they have at traffic lights to sense cars stopped for example in a turning lane to control turning arrows Etc.

The original question was how can a car be identified on a point to point speed camera without a transponder.

Number plate, combined with type of car, combined with time to travel the distance

Point-to-point cameras in NSW are only used to monitor the speed of heavy vehicles.

Yes, correct.

Do any states still use the painted lines and the light plane method?

Maybe bring back Ivan's speed humps to control pitlane speeds.
