From a press release issued by USGPRU: Fairfax, VA. The USGPRU is pleased to welcome Yoyodyne as a new contingency sponsor for the 2008 season. They will be providing a contingency support program for those USGPRU 125GP racers using any Starlane laptimer/instrumentation system on their race bikes. What’s more, the USGPRU will equip several bikes with the new battery-powered Starlane Athon GPS3 lap timers. The extremely easy-to-use system uses GPS to determine lap times without the hassle of beacons or underground loops. In addition, the system replaces the tachometer, shift lights, and speedometer and integrates several other features such as a hot-lap indicator and automatic track-mapping. The track-mapping feature allows the user to analyze individual corner speeds, splits, and lines taken in every corner. Comparing different racers’ lines and resultant speeds creates an affordable way for our youth racers as well as the more seasoned veterans to look at how other riders attack a course in a more quantitative manner than previously available to them. We will be demonstrating the ability of these systems as an instructional aid for all of our racers. The equipment will help racers learn tracks faster and learn how to dissect a racetrack to put together the optimum combinations of lines. We are excited to have Yoyodyne join our team in helping to support true GP racing in North America!
