New Pitstop System for 2016
BRKC races feature one compulsory pitstop to add a tactical element to the racing.
Pitstop strategy is crucial, and BRKC 2016 will feature an all new technological innovation for precise measurement of each driver’s pitstop.
As the driver enters the ‘stop box’ in the pitlane, a laser activates a red traffic light instructing the driver to stop. After a pre-determined time on ‘stop’, the system activates a green light allowing the driver to continue.
A false start will trigger a separate warning light, notifying both officials and drivers that they must pit again to complete a full stop.
