ATVMX Series Announces New Transponder System
Racers competing in the AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series will be using a new transponder system in 2012 – the MYLAPS FLEX transponder.
“The new MYLAPS FLEX technology allows a racer to decide how long they want the transponder to be activated for, thus introducing a lower cost for racers purchasing a transponder,” says Drew Carl of eScore.
Previously using Trackside’s WEER transponder as the primary source of scoring races, the ATVMX Series will now require racers to use the MYLAPS FLEX transponder while competing in the 10-round national series.
“MYLAPS has taken into consideration that many racers have made an investment in their old transponder from WEER and MYLAPS will make a special exchange offer for those racers,” says Carl.
There are two different options available for racers who have already purchased a WEER transponder. Option one allows racers to exchange their WEER transponder for a MYLAPS FLEX transponder at no charge. The new MYLAPS FLEX transponder will expire on December 31, 2014, and more time can be added to the transponder via the Flex Manager software. The second option allows racers to exchange their WEER transponder for the MYLAPS CLASSIC transponder for $40. The CLASSIC transponder does not have an expiration date and can be used after 2014.
The 2012 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship Series kicks off its 10-race series March 24 and 25 at Aonia Pass MX Park in Washington, Ga.
