In 2008 FS Series purchased a Winning Time timing system so they could not only race direct but time our events as well. FS Series can provide start/finish times and up to 5 splits for multi-sport events. Results are produced on-site for awards and age group competitors in a timely fashion. This move has made FS Series a full service event production company.
