SCTA/BNI timer 1983 to 2004, Retired,. Crew on Tur



« Reply #15 on: October 22, 2011, 02:43:55 PM »

Joe, the SCTA / BNI clocks are certified each year. The timers go to a standards lab and run for 24 hours to assure accuracy to 7 dec.points. The lakes clock is certified at the beginning of the season and has a back up clock in case there is a problem/question.

A certificate comes with each unit and is on file at the lakes/salt as well as well as FIA/FIM/AMA during their events.

The timing traps on the salt are surveyed by Bingham Engineering out of SLC. The lakes 132 ft. trap is measured by tape for length, width, and diagonal two ways. If the wind is blowing they are re measured to assure as the tapes can move and this is done in the early AM when it's calm.

The Rice Bros. have their own laser surveying equipment but for the salt it is contracted out as I mentioned above. Hope this makes sense. The battery voltage is also checked for each sensor @ 12.4 VDC If they drop to around 12.0 they are replaced and charged.

It seems Texas had clocks and a lighted speed display at the 1/2 mile and this is where Bill's 238 mph showed. There was no time for the mile but the timer thinks it can be retrieved. 238 is about right for a 270+ mile run so we will see. This is second hand information but from reliable people. I talked to Bill today and he is really beat up but still up beat. Already plotting and planning.    larry

TFA photog was at the mile, saw bill wheelie a bit maybe 500' from traps, recover and come boiling thru the end on throttle.  Photog got seq of 6 pix of the traps one with Bill right at the 1 mi marker no issues.

The displays show 1/2mi results, then 1 mi results.  only one number was apparently shown.
Spectator told me it was 1/2 mile.

Anyone who watches those cop/law TV shows knows witness reports are all over the map.

How fast was Bill going?
maybe we'll find out, maybe we won't
huh

Bill has an onboard video of the run. It did wheely before the traps but it settled down and he completed the run. The bike flopped over on its' side as he was slowing. The video will show what happened and end all speculation; we all have to wait until Bill recovers. I know my thoughts about the accident were wrong. Now on to the timing mystery.     Larry

Those who know Bill know him as... a humble and proud guy who would do anything for you, eager to help, yet reluctant to ask for help. What started as a few of us close to Bill helping out a friend in need has expanded as word leaked out of the huge financial burden his injuries have caused. There is a paypal account set up through Trillium Muir- trilliummuir@hotmail.com for anyone that wishes to contribute. I thank you in advance for your kindness.  Written by Scott Horner
