When you participate in a race timed by RaceTec, you are required to own and wear a RaceTec chip in order to receive an official time.
In addition to recording your time, your RaceTec chip also stores and provides us with real-time access to your personal information in the event of a race day emergency.
Your RaceTec chip is linked to you for life and is therefore not transferable.
You can buy a RaceTec chip at the registration or start line of any event we time, and online chip purchases can be collected at any RaceTec-timed event.
The cost of the chip is R140 if bought online through our entry system and R150 when purchased from our stand at the registration of an event timed by RaceTec.
Using Your RaceTec Chip At A Pedal Power Association (PPA) Funride: As from April 2016 all riders who participate in PPA funrides, using their RaceTec chip, will now be able to view their results on the RaceTec and Pedal Power Association websites.
- All riders who participate in PPA funrides, using their RaceTec chip, will now be able to view their results on the RaceTec and Pedal Power Association websites.
- Your chip can be collected from the RaceTec stand at any event timed by RaceTec. Please note that the chip will not be packed into your race pack unless otherwise stated.
- Please note that once a chip has been used, it is not transferable. If you find a RaceTec chip and want to see if it’s pre-owned, simply visit www.racetec.co.za, and enter the chip number (displayed on the chip) on the results page. If you are certain that there are no results, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a change of ownership. You may also hand a lost chip to the RaceTec crew at any event.
- Wear the chip around your ankle or mounted to your wheel when you participate in any race timed by RaceTec to receive accurate race results. RaceTec will not be held liable for results if it was proven that a chip was incorrectly used or worn.
- Results will be publicly displayed on www.racetec.co.za but will not be handed to other parties without your personal consent.
- RaceTec and Cycle Events (divisions of RaceTec Event Technology (Pty) Ltd) will, however, use this data to seed you correctly into events where these two companies are contracted to provide a seeding solution.
