MXGP to innovate in timing and race control solutions with MyLaps Sports Timing
Infront Moto Racing is thrilled to announce a 5-year cooperation with MYLAPS Sports Timing, helping to promote the most diverse MX series in the world. A new year presents a new opportunity to bring MXGP to a next level. From the 2021 season the world’s best motocross riders will benefit from the latest innovations in timekeeping and race control.
Next to the most reliable and accurate timing system in the industry, MYLAPS will provide the series with 2-way communication and live tracking. This new technology, called X2 Link, will be rolled out soon, allowing race officials to send the flag status (like yellow flags) to the riders on their bikes or to signalling devices alongside the track in order to improve safety. Also, it will additionally give the opportunity to capture live data during the race and in the future, it will add the possibility for the teams, officials and for broadcasters to get more information, allowing the fans to have an unprecedented experience of the race.
Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo: ‘We are glad to partner with the worldwide expert and leader of timing and race control solution. The system will allow all the MXGP stakeholders to get more detailed information about the racing but also for us, as promotor of the sport, we will be able to develop more tools to bring new data to the fans during the event. We are very excited to start this new collaboration with MYLAPS and hope for a bright future together in MXGP.’
MYLAPS CEO Camiel Slaats: ‘We look forward to work together with MXGP and participate in the development of the sport. Infront is a reputed promotor in motorsports and we feel honoured to be their technical supplier. Our X2 platform offers enhanced race control, timekeeping, and telemetry features in one solution and we can’t wait to see it integrated in the MXGP operations.’
