Yes, they have done so for a number of years.

On some events the live timing also incorporates a 'tracking' system that shows vehicle locations on the circuit in graphical form. But I think that depends if the organisers have requested / paid for it.

If it's still the same process the system updates from the transponder signal as it passes the control line and any sectors that are provided and then 'guesstimates' the position between sectors based upon their lap times, then corrects any differences at the next sector and so on.

At the moment the HSCC don't appear in TSL's 'Results' section where you can search for results according to the organising club rather than the 'Diary' section where the meetings are in chronological order . The other issue of course is Live Timing but I'm fairly sure TSL do now offer Live Timing .
They have done for years provide live timing.Along with commentary aswell.The layout mostly the same mabe a little clearer.

Having the timing screens on line is one modern development that is most welcome at historic events. It makes a huge difference to those like me who only stand and stare, particularly for keeping track of the longer races which I enjoy most. TSL do a great job and it transforms the experience. Now just need all tracks to have general wifi like Brands do

Agree. The timing available at most meetings I attend nowadays is superb, in this country and across the channel, it’s all so far removed from 10 years ago.

As for WiFi, seems a lot of circuits have now ‘switched on’ to charging for the service, but with a good data package on an iPad we usually manage without.

That’s the other thing, our TV monitor doesn’t even get to the pit wall nowadays- so much easier with a larger screen tablet!

Just learnt to turn my phone into a personal hotspot so I can use my iPad without a connection! Even an old un can learn new tricks. Sometimes

Well done that man! Because I’m a cheapskate my phone contract doesn’t allow it to be used as a hotspot when out of UK, which was a pain, but when I complained I got a really good deal on big data for the tablet instead!

Sometimes it works. We have two systems in use in karting and they don't take compatible transponders. Pain in the derrière, double the cost for the same output. Alpha Timing is superb run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, TAG is, well, the big monolith with the rubbish web site.

But I'd agree, timing is brilliant these days. We look at sector times and can compare our drivers in real time. Awesome.

Regarding WiFi, many kart tracks have it but it's normally rubbish in the outer paddock so we use my "all you can eat" hot spot.

Does anyone know what's In a transponder? Can't be much . . . . Just struck me they they're bloody expensive, why not just use a mobile phones and gps, like Harry's lap timer does. It's far more detailed and accurate anyway.

What I see is that over the years we've been encouraged - if not obliged - to use Chronelec and/or Tag Heuer both working fine but if we go at Spa we will have to rent another type, same thing at PA events. Uniformisation?
Not sure wonders like Harry or V-Box are allowed in historic other than during free practice tho…

Our karts have a digital dash either Mychron or the French Alfano. They show lap times in real time, splits, revs mapped against the GPS, water temperature, tyre temperature if you want and throttle position. Download via WiFi to the laptop of course. All for under £500, an absolute marvel of modern engineering.

But they don't transmit to the organisers hence we need the transponder as well. Shame.
