Xtra. driver information display

Driver Information DisplayThe Xtra.Driver Information Display is a unique steering wheel mountable display, designed to be used at rental kart centres. Apart from showing real time racing data, the system can also display race flags, (safety) instructions, active speed limits and penalties during the race. Commercial banners or personalised welcome messages can be shown to drivers in the pits while waiting for the race to start.

Information is displayed in large visible characters, providing excellent readability to the driver. A white backlight ensures perfect visibility even in cases of low ambient light. The backlight can also come on automatically at the moment new information is available on the display. The track operator can fully configure the display and decide which items on the display must be shown or not.
