Race Timing & Scoring

Race Works Gruppetto is the premier race timing and scoring service in the region, if not the country. We combine cutting edge electronic timing, leading high speed camera scoring, and extensive experience to offer you fast, 100% accurate timing/scoring.

We can, an routinely do, handle pretty much any event that is scored by time. Any event up to 100,000 participants can easily be handled by our systems.

We offer a number of different timing systems and a large selection of different RFID chips. These allow use to configure a timing/scoring solution for any event with any need, and still achieve 100% accurate scoring.

NOTE: The main reason why we are the best timing company - We put on 15-20 of our own races every year, including road cycling races, mountain bike races, cyclocross races, trail running races, and even a stand up paddle board race. So, every-time we add a new system to out timing arsenal, we come up with a cool new service to offer, or a great new way to time a race, we are able to test it to perfection at our own races. When we set up our gear to time your race, we've already perfected everything needed to get the job done perfectly.

Timing/Scoring Services

We utilize the highest quality timing hardware, cutting edge software, custom software, and extensive know how & experience to bring you the following services.

Eco-Friendly Green Energy - We run on the Sun

Race Works Gruppetto is the only solar powered Timing and Race company in the country.

Our race equipment trailer is covered with solar panels. When the trailer is parked, these panels charge multiple battery banks that are used to power our equipment. They also charge small portable "solar generators" that we use at remote locations. Just on battery alone we can power an entire race for a minimum of 12 hours. This offers you:

Electronic RFID Chip Timing and High Speed Camera Scoring

Race Works Gruppetto is the only timing & scoring company in the country that combines RFID chip timing with high speed cameras.

The RFID systems that we use are the best on the market. In combination with our timing software, we can routinely achieve accuracy of less than 1 inch. Compare that to every other chip system on the market, the best of which is accurate to 6 feet (i.e. 72 inches) at their best. Give me a call at 240-364-4910 and I'll explain how it works.

We also run a high speed finish line camera with advanced number plate reading software. This system can be used alone for some events, but we commonly integrate it with the RFID system. If there is a dispute, or just a very close finish that we want to check, we can easily check finishers with the camera system.

Timing/Scoring Capabilities

Our Announcer System

The Announcer system links to the to the timing systems and feed racer information to your announcer, or to video screens.
