    I appears their web site has multiple race trackers. I just checked...they've got at least 4 different links showing results. The leaderboard in the tracker doesn't work. Well, it's a newer race so I'll go easy on the webmaster. A tracker using YellowBrick or Spot tracking system would be nice. We'll find out who wins when it's over I guess. :confused:

    They're using SPOT trackers but their system is not good at all. Failure after failure, drop after drop.
    Unreliable. I hope nobody's life depends on it during the race.
