Maximum speeds reached by the riders, precise lap times and much more unique information will be provided to fans watching the broadcasts from the TAURON SEC 2022. The organizers decided to use telemetry to make the competition even more attractive. The first opportunity to use the system will come this Saturday.
Telemetry is the novelty for the Individual European Championship series. For months, it has been successfully used in the Polish Ekstraliga to gather information on the riders performances and to help resolve arguable situations.
Courtesy of the Speedway Ekstraliga, telemetry will be used for the first time during the upcoming competition in Rybnik. The data will include reaction times, the exact times of all riders, the speeds, the distance covered, the number of overtakes, and a photo finish to decide which rider was the first to cross the finish line.
The additional information will be a valuable source of data for the riders and their teams. What's more, it will enhance the TV coverage with a handful of unique statistics.
The telemetry will be used during all rounds of this year's TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2022, which will take place in Rybnik (Saturday), Güstrow (August 6), Łódź (September 3) and Pardubice (September 23).
