Many of you will have read on the internet about the introduction of RaceRecievers, we brought these in for Junior Rods during 2019 but the ORCi want them on all formulas for 2020 onward.

In all formulas drivers must have a RACEceiver device fitted, The RACEceiver device for Drivers is being mandated at ORCi tracks all over the country. This small communication device is revolutionising the industry, making the sport safer for both the drivers and officials. It saves time by allowing officials to talk to all the drivers at the same time and lets you get on to more racing. The officials can warn drivers about accidents or debris on the track and to ensure the correct driver is excluded should a black flag be needed.

The suggested Raceceiver is the "RACEceiver Fusion+" or the "RE SwitchR" available at many outlets on the internet, they are not usually supplied with earphones, so you will need to supply a set of in-ear earphones with a 3.5mm plug.

Spedeworth Store

That information will be written into the 2020 Rules for each formula, it is a requirement that ALL drivers have them - it is YOUR responsibility to have one, just like it would be with a helmet or overalls, please look them up on the internet where there are deals to be had - "RACEceiver Fusion+" or "RE SwitchR" is what you need to look for.

You will be informed which channel you need to tune into upon scrutineering.


Transponder Compatibility for Buxton Raceway is as follows:

Currently, the 1300 Stockcars use Transponders for lap scoring and timing, but other formulas may have to use them in the future.

Types that are compatible:

Red car/bike 260DP [direct powered]
Red car/bike 260 [rechargeable]
Yellow 160 kart
Red car/bike Flex
Yellow karting Flex
Yellow X2 kart
Red X2 car/bike
TR2 [red car/bike]
TR2 [yellow kart]

NOT COMPATIBLE are the Motocross types, these are usually ORANGE in colour - DO NOT BUY THEY WILL NOT WORK.

Not sure? please contact Nik Eastwood before purchasing.


Additional Info/notes
Some of the new types are subscription only, they are cheaper to buy but will incur a monthly fee, should one of those fail, it can be replaced by mylaps as part of your sub. BE AWARE that subscription transponders will need to BE ACTIVATED before use, otherwise they will not work, activation is by a laptop/pc or tablet with a cable and transponder cradle which will be part of the package, some of the very new ones can be done by bluetooth. WE CANNOT activate transponders at the track. You will need access to your mylaps account to activate them and all instructions will be supplied with a new unit.

The Transponder must be mounted in the car in the orientation as in the pics above, a large hole must be put into the rear floorpan [6inchx6inch] and the transponder needs to be mounted so that its bottom edge is level with the original floor pan, the transponder needs to have a clear, unobstructed view of the track surface so that it can send its signal to the track pick up loop.

Mounting Suggestion
