The MYLAPS transponder will be used to score The Battle for Ohio Events at Malvern, Chillitown, and Briar Cliff . The event will follow the rental program described on this page. Each racer will need a transponder. Transponders will be available for racers to rent at the event only. To rent a transponder for the event, you may use cash, Visa, or Master Card. No checks will be accepted. There will be enough rental transponders at the track for each racer to rent. Transponders will not be available to rent online in advance for any event.
Renting a transponder:
A racer only needs one transponder no matter how many classes the racer is in. Transponders can not be shared between racers. Each time your transponder passes over the finish line, the scoring software will know exactly who you are, what position you are in, and what your lap time is.
Each transponder requires the racer to leave $120 for a cash transaction. When the transponder is returned at the end of racing you will receive $100 back if cash was used. If you use a credit card your card will be charged $25 up front and if you do not return the transponder at the end of the event you will then be charged an additional $100. The rental transponder must be returned at the event. Rented transponders can be picked up one hour after the gate opens to racers. eScore will be open at the same time as registration each day of signup for transponders to be rented. We will close the lap times kiosk and windows 1 hour after racing each day. If you want your lap times or wish to return you transponder please do so within these times.
Purchasing a transponder:
eScore will have a limited number of transponders available for purchase at the event for $120 cash and $125 credit. We rarely run out of transponders for sale but it is possible. All transponders received from eScore will expire one year from the day they are activated. At this time the transponder can be reactivated by connecting the transponder to a computer with Internet access using the Flex Manager software. More info on this can be found here. Transponders can also be purchased on the MYLAPS website.
Lap times will be free for any racer who rented a transponder. If you own your own transponder you must pay $10 for lap times. There will be a touch screen kiosk at the eScore trailer that you can enter your transponder number into. The computer will search our system and print the lap times for that transponder number as well as any other transponder that was on the track at that time. For practice you will get the lap times for your transponder as well as every one else that was in the practice group you were in. If your practice was split into groups you will only get the group you were on the track for. For racing you will get every class you are signed up for. If there was more than one division you will want to wait for all divisions to be complete so you get the times for all of them. The kiosk will only print each sheet one time. If some one else enters your transponder number you will not be able to print your times again. Knowing this please do not enter any one else's number or try to guess your own number as you may accidentally cause problems for some one else.
