NIGERIA AUTO SPORT ASSOCIATION ACQUIRES TIMING SYSTEM FOR MAIDEN NIGERIAN GRAND PRIX.

As preparations for the Nigerian Grand prix (NGP) get into top gear, the Nigeria Auto Sports Association has secured the purchase of its electronic timing system from MYLAPS Sports Timing (the Official Moto GP Timing System supplier). The Association received the multimillion Naira timing system on Friday 13th March, 2020. The equipment which will be the first of its kind to be used in Nigeria features Transponders, Detection Loop and Servers/Decoders to capture, process, and display drivers lap time and positions real time during the Nigerian Grand Prix race.

MYLAPS timing systems are designed to time and score different kinds of racing events. A transponder is mounted on a race car. The signal sent by a transponder is picked up by a detection loop installed in the track surface. The detection loop is connected to MYLAPS decoder. The decoder timestamps the received transponder signals and sends this data to a connected computer.

Transponder

MYLAPS transponders enable you to give each competitor a unique identification. The transponder is fixed to the vehicle with a transponder holder that is secured with bolts, screws, rivets or zip ties. When passing over the detection loop in the track, the transponder sends its signal to the loop.

Detection loop

The detection loop is embedded into the track surface and picks up each transponder passing. The unique signal of the transponder is picked up by the loop and transferred to the MYLAPS decoder. Several transponders can be picked up at exactly the same time. This ensures no transponders will be missed, even if 7 or 8 vehicles pass the loop at exactly the same time.

Decoder

The MYLAPS X2 decoder is connected to the detection loop via a coax cable and receives the transponder passing data from the detection loop. It reads the unique transponder signal and gives the transponder an exact passing time. When received, it sends the passing information to the MYLAPS X2 Server to which the computer running the Orbits5 program is connected to.

The timing system will also enable race officials monitor the time and speed of each race car; to allow for uniformity and proper track record keeping.

Each car will be armed with transponders that transfer data to the main server for compilation by race officials.

MYLAPS Sports Timing specializes in the development of timing and scoring solutions for different kinds of racing sports. The software is developed for use in combination with MYLAPS timing hardware.

MYLAPS Sports Timing is staffed by the same group of engineers who have developed programs like Timegear, ChronX, PractiX and Orbits, the software supplied with MYLAPS timing and scoring systems. MYLAPS software is distributed by MYLAPS offices in the Netherlands, the USA, Japan, Australia and Malaysia.

The timing system is paramount for the Nigerian Grand Prix and goes to show the readiness and commitment of NASA NG to organise and promote motorsport according to the international standard.
