New live timing services coming to TT 2021

NTT appointed to provide GPS-based system

Technology services company NTT has been appointed to provide data and live timing tracking services for course cars, travelling marshal bikes, and competitors in the Isle of Man TT Races, the Classic TT Races and the Manx Grand Prix.

The Department for Enterprise made the announcement today.

Along with local firm SES, the company will deliver a GPS-based tracking system that will give real time data from any point around the circuit, which will be available to race fans via the official www.iomttraces.com website.

The Luxembourg-based organisation already supplies data and timing services for the Tour De France, and hopes to be operational around the Mountain Course by the 2021 races.
