The timing system is AMB. They specialize in race timing and scoring systems. With a transponder you will be able to see your lap times to 1/1000th of a second. I think the real cool thing is that the times will then be uploaded to MyLaps.com. I am not sure how often the times will be uploaded but to go back later and see your times is very cool. Transponders are on all rental track bikes and the transponders can be purchased at the velodrome for $100.
