Thank you for your time, and we appreciate your cooperation in this process."

October 7; UPDATE:
This email was just received by some racers:
"A brand new system will be sent to you for pre-installing of the brackets and hardware.
Coming soon is a installation video for your team to attach the equipment properly."
In order to receive your kit for tracking, we need a shipping address to your team's shop or location of the race vehicle. Please send the address information to Krista via email or phone call, 775-852-8907.
It is important to get the information as soon as possible so that you can install the kit to your vehicle before the race. Kits will not be mailed until entry and kit is paid in full.
This kit is a one time fee that is yours to keep on your vehicle.
There will be a video for installation instructions will be released in the next two weeks.
October 5 UPDATE:
"SPOT", Globalstar comments: "What SCORE did with our units was strictly a test. SPOT was never designed for desert off-road racing controls, under the conditions anticipated and experienced in Baja California, Mexico".
Roger Norman received the SPOT units at no charge. That's the reason he used the system. Not because they performed to meet any standards.
Norman also has kept, without returning them to the rightful owner, a number of IRC units. Steve Myers of IRC said to a reporter for BajaRacingNews.com: "Norman has not returned IRC units for years! Maybe he's still trying to figure out how they work? Or how much they cost to manufacture?"
What hasn't been said. It'll take two years to finalize the set-ups for this service. They HAVE NEVER been used on a platform like desert off-road racing before!
Look how long it took 'Forgetten' Norman to figure out his "Official SCORE" "trademarked" tracking system - failed.
Three Years! Two years to complete all the set-ups and one full year of proven negligence.
Do we have to mention who was killed and/or died, because Roger didn't know where they were?
With only days before the Baja 1000, the first race event this service has ever tracked, the shakedown, the test, the crash test dummies...are the Baja 1000 racers themselves!
October 2, 2016, Pomona California: In a stark admission today, from what usually is a celebration of off-road motorsports, the President and Owner of SCORE International admitted his choice of a tracking service for the last three years...SUCKED and cost lives.
Why did he keep an unsafe system after it killed racers? It was FREE!
By announcing a new service for the November Baja 1000, his admission is complete.
