RE: Grandstand scoreboards consultation announced
I think there is room for both traditional and new.

I sat in the grandstand for the 2014 Superbike race and it was great to see the scoreboard in operation. However, it must be said that's it is a huge undertaking and the information wasn't up to date after lap 1. In fact some of it was only completed just before the sidecar TT.

I would prefer a manual (scout operated) scoreboard to remain in place, but would also like a digital option too which would allow for all sorts of content possibilities - for which income would partially be a driver.

Tradition is important, but not necessarily at the expense of improvements. Ultimately though, how many people (as a percentage of spectators around the course) ever see the scoreboard in action?
