[xt] timing presents TAG Heuer Motorsport Timing Systems

TAG Heuer, the official timekeeper of Formula One, has long been respected in the motorsports community. [xt] timing and TAG Heuer have assisted car clubs with their timing needs. We specialize in lap timing (one car at a time), rally, rallycross, and autocross.

All TAG Heuer electronic timers work in time-of-day. This method is different from what you may have used in the past. Most older timers simply started at zero and counted up until the car finished and then reset to zero after giving the ET (elapsed time). The downside to that is if someone cross the finish line by accident(we all know it happens!) while a car was on course or the operator didn't know which car was to finish next due to an on-course occurrence.

The result of that is a lost time which no one is ever happy about. The use of time-of-day timers allows much greater flexibility to the timekeeper. When timekeeping begins, you simply enter the time of the day (9:00.000). Every event (car passing through the start or finish line) will be recorded as an event in time of day (Car #19:01:31.123).

Therefore, if a car is on course and a volunteer crosses the line, no big deal. You will already have the cars' start time-of-day on the tape and stored in memory. The volunteer will NOT stop the time for that car. You can "false finish" the volunteer or you can use the real time-of-day when the car does pass and calculate the ET by hand. It takes more time to do that but at least you didn't miss the time. Also, all events at the start and finish line are recorded for later review on the print out and stored in the memory of the device.

If your timer doesn't use time-of-day, give a TAG Heuer timer a try and you will quickly realize the benefits of no lost times at your event.
