And the faster guy behind would know a race vehicle was up ahead even if he doesnít see it. This doesnít completely solve the dangerous driver problem, but it could significantly lessen the risk since the guy ahead would know something is coming, and have time to move over.

Whatís holding me back is that the idea of such a warning device doesnít seem to interest enough of the decision makers. It would also add some cost to the event, maybe $50 to $100 rental fee per vehicle per race (with many additional useful features besides the pass warning). As always, Iím interested in feedback on this concept.
A great proximity alert has already been developed here in Australia and is in use, if you want the contact who has done it and is looking at getting them out to events PM me, pretty sure the cost is lower than you think as well
