TOCA to introduce onboard safety signage for 2022 »TouringCars.Net
TOCA will introduce a new on-board visual signaling system for all series that are part of the British Touring Car Championship package for the 2022 season.
The race control system software was developed by Timing Solutions Limited (TSL), a longtime timing and scoring partner.
The system will allow the BTCC Race Control to immediately notify all drivers, via an onboard dashboard, of yellow flag areas, red flag stops, safety car periods, black or black / white flag notifications and other important safety messages.

The system will be extended to all support categories, involving more than 100 cars at each race weekend.
“TOCA continues to take the lead in bringing technological, sustainability and safety innovations to UK motorsport, and we are proud to present this on-board visual signaling system from 2022,” said said BTCC chief executive Alan Gow.
“This is a very important safety improvement for our BTCC riders and indeed our marshals, and which I am sure will also be adopted by our valuable support championships.
“It is essential to stress, however, that this important safety tool will complement – and not replace – the traditional flag system deployed by the marshals, which remains an intrinsic part of the safety protocols.”
