Typical of ACA

Listening to this interview, it strikes me that Chris states that ACA shouldn't be held responsible for the results yet they are mandating the use of a particular timing system that they own. If you don't want to be responsibile for results, you can't mandate the use of a timing system that is difficult to use in the field. Let the race directors choose the scoring method.

Not every race is required to use the timing system

I maybe wrong on this but aren't only the elite and mid-tier races required to use the timing system? That means the promotor CHOOSE to use the timing system. If haters REALLY hate then they won't care about BAR/BAT points and the promotor and not choose to be a gold level event but go bronze or lead instead and roll everything they way they want it to be. Wednesday crit series doesn't use the timing system.
