Some racers who react quickly off the line
when the gate drops get passed by the rest of the pack three
quarters of the way down the start straight because they don’t
carry their speed up to and through the first turn.
You need to practice quick reaction off the line, proper
power shifting down the straight and carrying your speed through
the first turn in order to be up front.
Here’s how the start feature works.
While on the starting line you press the function button
on the VictoryLap Performance Timer to start the “get ready”
sequence. You now
have fifteen seconds to position yourself on the bike for the
start. After fifteen seconds the red light comes on which is the
simulation for the thirty-second card turning sideways.
After seeing the red light it is now time to turn up the
throttle and get ready for the green light.
The green light simulates the gate dropping.
But guess what, it’s just like the real moto start.
The green light will vary anywhere from two to five
seconds before turning on. When the green light comes on the
VictoryLap Performance Timer starts recording your time off the
line and through the first turn where the trackside infrared
transmitter then stops the timing sequence.
The patented Performance Light system will
give you instant results on how well you carry your speed
through the entire start section.
Each start is compared to the previous. The red
performance light will indicate a slower time while the green
light will tell you that you are improving.
I guarantee you will start holding the gas on longer
going into and through the first turn when you see the red
light. You will
only want to see greens.
The exact times of each start in the session are held
in e-prom memory for your review after each start. You can also review the times later in the pits.
We suggest you record your times in a logbook for future
practice session will be devoted to improving your times off the
line and through the first turn. That is our commitment to you.
The VictoryLap Performance timer never lies by giving you
the information you need to get up front and win races. Now
we’re having fun!
