We are a Father and Son team.
Ted (the Father)
KitSt started as Teds 'hobby' with the aim to produce economic clocks to meet the needs of race organisers.
“As a race organiser I found that there was no easily available clock that would support the timed start requirements for Orienteering. The first project was to supply a set of Start Clocks for the Scottish Orienteering Association. Details of this project can be found on my home page.
If the SOA clocks are a Rolls Royce then KiST are the Ford Escort or perhaps VW Golf of clocks
The KitST clocks are built around an embedded micro processor and so can be customised to users requirements. User feedback has led to a number of added features such as the SLOW option to delay the time and the Start Beeps option in the Stop Clock.
I welcome comments and feedback and any requests for new features.
Ted has competed at the highest level in Orienteering and has been involved in organising more than one World championships. He continues to reach the podium in events around the world in his age group.
Ben (the Son)
Ben joined KitST when we introduced the chip timing service.
“As a race participant I was often frustrated that the smaller good quality races couldn’t provide chip timing as it was too costly. The technology exists to make this available to everyone. It just needs a little technical know how to make it work.
If we provide accurate timing and good quality results we can reduce the stress in organising events.”
Ben is keen participant in Obstacle Course Racing and is often found up to his ears in mud and aims to reach a high level within his age group at the UK Champs.
