On Friday 18 March 2016 CBS Tasmania will be completing the final set up on the new gate operating system.
The gate will be operational ready, but will be mechanically disengaged by the manual leaver so it will still have to be physically opened as is current.
Once this happens the padlock will be removed from the gate so it is important that the gate is NOT manually forced as damage may occur.
There is a safety system on the gate in the form of a eye beam so the gate will NOT close should some object ie car/ trailer be half in/ out. There is a small possibility if raining that water dripping on the eye may be mistaken for an object and the gate may remain open.
This is only a very slight possibility but all members should be made aware of this to ensure they exit the gate, and monitor that the gate does close before they leave the track. Should they neglect to do so, the system will log who was last out and the club will know who is responsible.
Please understand there are likely to be minor technical difficulties as there always is with new systems and everyone needs to be patient and help to deal with them in a positive manner to work through them.
