Just a thought. We'll all be using transponders for the event, right? If so, timing and scoring will be able to verify that all karts will have at least two laps that are at least 2 mins and some odd seconds long. This is how they police the SCCA endurance races with mandatory length pit stops. Before the race, the officials time a car (kart in our case) from the instant it rolls into the pit entrance, comes to a stop for 2 minutes and passes the pit out line. This time- say its 2 mins and 25 seconds long- will be what timing and scoring is looking for during the scrutiny of the event. In other words, each kart will have to show where they've had two instances of a lap time that ranges above 2 mins and 25 seconds. Let the transponders do the work for timing and scoring officials.

Besides, in 100 laps, I sincerely doubt the winners will be separated by the length of green flag pit stops.

This idea reduces the tower-to-pit marshall-to-individual crew member relay to a minimum.

We will have to look into that but just first impressions the lap charts show who is leading and your fastest lap. I didn't see any where that it timed each lap and gave a total for a lap.
