Types of Records
Any vehicle that runs on land, water, or ice.
All vehicles will make two runs, then an average of those two runs will be the official time
All vehicles must start the 2nd run within 24 hr. The 24 hr time starts when the vehicle first enters the timing zone.
The two runs used to validate the record can be run in any direction.
Any acceptable timing organization may be used. Methods to obtain times may use timing clocks spaced and certified over a one mile distance, certified GPS (Global Positioning System) or certified GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System), or some future technology not yet invented. Prior to making a run, the team must contact the WLSRA® to verify that the equipment they will be using is acceptable. Course layout for timing light systems will be based on accurate survey points and must be set by a licensed surveyor.
WLSRA® Timing Protocol (Click on Link)
Speed, per WLSRA®, is the distance traveled over two points in time. The location of these points, geometrically, is indeterminate, but can be calculate.
A Licensed Surveyor will be required when conventional light beam technology is used. The Licensed Surveyor shall hold license from the following countries:
- United States
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
Records may be certified based on the following categories:
- Thrust powered, multiple engine, 4 or more wheels.
- Thrust powered, single engine, 4 or more wheels.
- Thrust powered, multiple engine, 3 or fewer wheels.
- Thrust powered, single engine, 3 or fewer wheels.
- Wheel driven, multiple engine, 4 or more wheels.
- Wheel driven, single engine, 4 or more wheels.
