    Yes, EMRA is still going to use their own Zoomius System (Now Tag Heuer), at their new home next year. Castrol Raceway. It will be interesting to see how that holds up. CMRA at Calgary could not get the zoomius system working well due to how wide their track was. Strat was not very wide, so Zoomius would work well there. Only time will tell. We are excited to be on a new system like WMRRA and OMRRA.
