OTH Timing & Scoring Explained

OTH Timing & Scoring Explained (Important please Read)

For 2012 OTH moved to RFID timing. It’s a great system for a number of reasons. We can offer lap
times, instant results, easy registration, etc.

A few things you need to know:

1. We score the race ONLY based on FINISH ORDER.
2. Lap times are ONLY for YOUR benefit. RFID is a great system, but there are occasions when a
chip won’t read correctly. It’s just the nature of RFID. So the lap times, and even overall time
may not represent the actual finish order.
3. We have several back-up systems in place to determine finish order if one of your laps fails to
read. That’s why it’s important to KEEP YOUR POSITION THROUGH THE FINISH CHUTE.
4. Typically there are some changes after the race. People in the wrong class, etc. We will make
those adjustments and repost the results (typically on Wed night).

If you have a scoring issue, please email us: info@overthehumpseries.com

Thanks for racing with us.
