Chicago and Mil. regions are going to be using Transponders at Road America and Blackhawk. There is also talk of transponders being acquired to use at Mid Ohio, Grattan, and Gingerman.
Faced it folks transponders are going to become an everyday part of racing and there will be intital problems with personnel and equipment, as can be expected with any new system. Fighting and belly acheing about it will only make this transition even more painfully. I for one plan to be patient and help out in any way that I can to make this transition work smoothly.
