GVKC is excited to announce that our scoring system is getting an upgrade! For the 2016 season, the club will install a new decoder and MyLaps software to offer members a better user experience and access to the latest technology. The new software supports the latest MyLaps X2 Kart transponders, which come bundled with a subscription to a personal MyLaps account where drivers’ data is stored. The new transponders offer pit crews the capability of viewing lap times on a connected device in real time. X2 Kart transponders charge via USB, and are available at a significantly more affordable price point than previous transponders. The new scoring software will continue to support older MyLaps transponders. To help cover the cost of the upgrade, GVKC is adopting the model used by most karting facilities of offering transponders for rent. For the 2016 season, the club’s existing TX160 transponders will be available at a rental fee of $5 per day. Currently, X2 Kart transponders are designed as personal devices. We encourage all members who are interested in using this new technology to purchase a transponder before the race season starts to give yourself time to set up your new MyLaps account, register your transponder and activate your subscription. The new transponders are available directly from MyLaps.com for $115.89 plus shipping, or through online kart outlets....
