Don't Just Take Our Word For It.


We chose the Alpha Timing System because we have witnessed first hand the level of passion, support and development which has gone into the system over the years to get it to the stage where it is now.

It is the most comprehensive, flexible and robust system out there. It beats the competition and our old timing system hands down.

I have also known the two Wills for more than a decade and I know that their support will be second to none.

We have been running the Alpha Timing System since the early days in 2008 and it has made the running of the events far easier than the old system we used to run. It is such a simple system that even I can use it! We run so many different formats, qualifications schemes etc and the timing system can cope with them all. It is invaluable to us.

In 2012 we took delivery of the Alpha Championship System and it has revolutionised the way we manage our bookings and communicate with our customers for both our arrive-and-drive and MSA championships. It doesn't pigeon hole us into a way of doing things, rather it gives us the flexibility to run the business how we want to. I cannot imagine going back to the old way of doing things.
