American Endurance Racing at NJ
Flagger had a super time at New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend. The Flagger In-Car Alert System worked flawlessly for the 14 hour American Endurance Racing 2020 finale. We supplied a special "Turn Lights On" flag at the request of AER. It was fun to see all the drivers switch their lights on all of a sudden. The new golf cart is a really nice tool to have. At the end of the race we gave a little preview of the newest feature with a simple "Nice Race" message to everyone. Can't wait to be back with AER on the Charlotte Motor Speedway roval in February for their 2021 season opener!
Spec Miata Race at AMP
Flagger was installed installed in every race car at AMP for a race! It worked great and the drivers and track management want it... now!!!
Racers are informed of track conditions via flags. Each flag has a meaning. We all know "green flag" mean go. "Checkered flag" means the race is over. There are many other flags which convey information to the drivers. They convey important safety information. A great example is a "yellow flag" which tells the driver there is some sort of incident on track. Drivers know to beware when they see a flag like that. They must slow down and are not allowed to pass other cars. You can imagine the mayhem if they fail to see a waving flag!!! Drivers frequently miss flags because they are focused on the job at hand... they are watching where they are going.
Flagger puts the information in front of them... in car... in their line of sight. Hard to miss that flag!!
The system is GPS enabled so the racer gets the information only at the portion of the track where the they need to pay heed.
Look at the comments of the driver who just finished his event and see what he thinks of the system.
Also, notice the picture of "track control" which shows everything occurring on track. The notes at the bottom log everything.
You can see the in-car mobile unit in the race cars.
NASA at Summit Point
More testing, more units! We placed FlagStations all around the track and sent thousands of flags all day in the brutal heat. Officials are excited about the technology, the usability and simplicity of the system.
We are working hard to create the best system by listening to the people who use it!
Atlanta Motorsports Park Testing
Tested Flagger technology during today's race at Atlanta Motorsports Park. Racers had the device in car and FlagStations (for corner workers to activate flags) were placed at various points around the track.
Racing stakeholders (racers, track owners and sanctioning bodies) are embracing Flagger and look forward to its rollout. You should see the smile on racer's faces when they understand what it will do for their safety!!
