Back at the beginning of 2022 I joined with Race Time Result as their GPS Tracking Manager to provide a high quality bespoke tracking service to event organisers and race directors across the UK.
Since then, and as the Events Industry continues to get back on it’s feet after a very difficult couple of years, things have got more and more busy for us. Most weekends a number of the team are out in a variety of locations to deliver both GPS Tracking and Race Timing Services to events across the country.
As things have continued to develop, there’s more and more work needed to be done behind the scenes and I’m delighted to announce that, from April 1st, my role with Race Time Result will be changing and I’ll be taking on additional work as their Race Timing & GPS Services Manager.
While I’ll still have a significant focus on the GPS Tracking services, this increased role will involve coordinating the maintenance, logistics and delivery of the timing services that the team offers.
After what has already been a very positive start to 2022, I’m really looking forward to being even more involved in this hugely exciting area of event support.
