Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch is proud to be the first race track in the United States to implement a revolutionary new Track Warning Light Module System, known as the Track Marshall.  The state-of-the-art system,438 designed and implemented by Gary Hardesty, Charter Member of Club Spring Mountain, was designed to warn the driver of hazards on track, far faster than the original flag method.  The systems are completely wireless and are powered by battery backed solar or generator systems.  The benefits are numerous….the high powered lights are much easier to see than the traditional flags, and the system can instantaneously warn the entire track of potentially dangerous situations. 

The systems receive commands via a long-range wireless network that is highly encrypted and secure.  At the 439master control, operated in our new sky-high timing tower, a software program controls the system.  Each Light Module location can be controlled independently, or in sync with the others.  For example, we can allow a yellow flag condition at a specific area of the track, while the remainder of the track remains in a green condition.

The Light Module can produce a wide variety of warning colors, including the standard colors commonly used in racing.  We use extremely bright proprietary LED’s in our systems (not traffic lights as other systems use) allowing for viewing at greater distances and a wider range of color output.  The units are housed in a fire- and weather-proof enclosure and have been tested in very high temperature operation last summer, as well as high wind and rain conditions.
