And the faster guy behind would know a race vehicle was up ahead even if he doesn’t see it. This doesn’t completely solve the dangerous driver problem, but it could significantly lessen the risk since the guy ahead would know something is coming, and have time to move over.

What’s holding me back is that the idea of such a warning device doesn’t seem to interest enough of the decision makers. It would also add some cost to the event, maybe $50 to $100 rental fee per vehicle per race (with many additional useful features besides the pass warning). As always, I’m interested in feedback on this concept.
A great proximity alert has already been developed here in Australia and is in use, if you want the contact who has done it and is looking at getting them out to events PM me, pretty sure the cost is lower than you think as well

I looked up the RallyCat. Their website (www.rallycat.ca) doesn't seem to exist anymore. I did find this interesting discussion about it, from 2004:
http://www.specialstage.com/forums/a...p/t-2600.html?
Unfortunately I could not find any more recent information. Its function sounds similar to the Dakar Sentinel, IRC Pass Alert, and the Australian device.

How would it differentiate between a pass and two vehicles or riders following each other? Closing speed?

That's my approach. Anything less than say 5 or 10 mph CLOSING speed is just close racing, so no automatic warning would be given, only manual (push the button) warning if desired. Plus other automatic "smart" stuff, like indicating if the warning is coming from ahead or behind, so you know to either move over for what's coming quickly from behind, or watch out for what's ahead.

Ok gents.
Here is the "teaser" for the film project that Andrew put together while we were down racing the Mexican 1000 this year.

I just had the pleasure of watching the film. Its seriously awesome. The production quality is off the charts, and man it brought me right back to the race. Great job Team Austin + "Camera Guy" (Tim Morton refused to call him by his given name of Andrew, preferring "camera guy" moniker....) Too cool.

2014 looks to be a riot in the making!

Heads up to anyone that needs support Tim is in again for next year. We have 5 guys from Chicago, plus Vanscourt on the Triumph/Motoworks Tiger 800 Baja Rally edition that he'll be supporting, and he's capable of taking several more riders.

For any of you that are considering this rally for the 1st time I would highly recommend doing support with Tim, he's BajaBoundMoto on here, he knows the program, makes it easy, and is super reasonable on the $$$ side. Plus he's a good dude. And if you need to feel better about the size of your wiener taking a leak next to him and taking a peek is worth the price of admission. I didnt know they made em that small!

Jokes aside we are already waist deep in prep for next year. Dave at RMS sold my Dakar dream bike to some real rally guy that's doing some rally in South America so I'll be back on the DRZ. We have three more Chicago guys on DRZ's so the Lightweight Modern class will be hotly contested.

Later - Johnny
