Stage One Technology returns to WRC!

Former WRC promoter’s timing technology partner Stage One Technology returns to World Rally Championship in full capacity, starting with Rally Sweden. The company was absent from Monte Carlo because time for negotiations ran out so Monte’s organizers Automobile Club de Monaco used their own timing equipment and resources.

According to tweet by Stage One Technology’s managing director Simon de Banke, company will return to World Rally Championship operations on second rally of the season in Sweden. This is good news for competitors, media and fans, because of the advanced timing systems and technologies used by Stage One Technology.

“Stage One Technology to be in WRC Rally Sweden in full capacity, with our full systems!” de Banke tweeted today.

It also means lovely World Rally Radio host Becs Williams will once again be able to track down crews on stages and report on split times, possibly sparing Colin Clark from “distinctive sound” embarassment! ;)
