That being said if the racers team or someone else had reported that he was seen to be driving miles the other direction I would expect a different response would have been provided by any reasonable promoter. I know many dont care for the IRC system but this is a good case that may have helped the subject be located faster. It may not be perfect but in the absence of perfect I will take anything that helps me find people that need me -
Motorsports Safety Solutions
During races we have issues with cars being gone IE "The car passed this checkpoint and then has disappeared" or "So and sos team can't find their car" We later find out they drove back to the pits and never checked in or sometimes they leave the car and are wandering around the desert. I have found racers 5 miles from their car. It gets busy at times for retrevals/checkpoints/emergency staff and when a car is not anywhere near the course it gets even harder to find. An improved version of IRC would really help everyone be safer, such as modified / required SPOT trackers.
May not be your issue but many cars that run high rpms for long peroids of time actually overcharge batteries. If this is the case you may need to install a larger pully on the alt. or a smaller crank pully. Disreguard this if you have underdrive pulleys already.
