Question why light activated

I found it works for me about 90% of the time, and when it doesn't, it usually just needs a readjusting on the bike, or old batteries in the beacons.

As far as using this timer for GP8, yes, you need two beacons, set up on both sides of the start/finish line.

Those beacons are nothing more but an infrared light bulb. You can probably just get it at Radio Shack and strap it to a battery.
Why not use something like this, so nothing has to be mounted to the bike?
You can call me TKO
