RaceAmerica introduces affordable Large Digital Displays to bring the crowd into your racing action. Available in 24in/61cm, 15in/38cm, and 8in/20cm Tall Digits Combinations of 6, 5, or 4 Digit Displays and optional Internal Wireless Data Communications. These Large Digital Displays are microprocessor based intelligent displays using the latest technology Ultra-Bright LED's (Light Emitting Diodes). These are no ordinary LED's. By incorporating the latest LED technology, RaceAmerica's Displays can be seen clearly with full sunlight shining directly into the front of the displays!

All RaceAmerica Large Digital Displays are designed to connect to standard 110VAC or 230VAC power using our AC Adapters or many can be powered by a 12 volt DC power such as an automotive battery. The low power consumption level of these displays makes it possible to run a full day and night event on a single battery charge. With no moving parts to wear out, the solid state design increases reliability significantly and reduces the cost of owning displays at your autocross race event. RaceAmerica's Large Digital Displays are available in three digit heights to match placement on the track, in front of the drivers, and to show the race results to the crowd.

For the programmer, custom features can easily be incorporated into the software program.
