Roger Normans (SCORE) tracking problems Trump Steve Myers (IRC) money problems, with Free IRITRACK sytems offered to SCORE racers for BAJA 500

After years of SCORE tracking problems and Steve Myers money problems, Roger Norman is offering IRITRACK systems for the BAJA 500 racers, for Free. 

Roger Norman just said: 

"SCORE will be running the Iritrack tracking system by Air Bus Defense & Space in conjunction with Spot 3 and a data logger on each 4 wheel vehicle for this years running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500. There will be no additional expense for racers. One of the goals of this test is to have results at the finish line with penalties calculated. We will be testing the ability to tabulate penalties as they happen live and automatically tabulated for results at the finish. What is learned from this race may be incorporated into the new tracking systems being designed now and will be tested at the Baja 1000 in November. SCORE will also be testing a system designed by Brad Baker who happens to be rider of record on bike 329x. Among many other important goals for the new systems being designed is to have built in systems for warning a bike that a vehicle is approaching and to warn the vehicle that a motorcycle is ahead. The new systems will have many other innovations. Chase crews will be testing a new text number that will give updates on any rider or driver at this race."
