Yea, plastic box lids whatever. I made an aluminum copy like the one behind that fabulous cardboard one. But we hardly ever use it.

The main thing that's regulated is having your number displayed in your pit area, so that the officials can see who's pitted where. I used the lid from my toolbox and some duct tape, and ziptied it to my canopy each race.

That's the only thing that's regulated. I don't think you even have to have a pit board...

when I enduranced Chris Newhouse's ninja, he used a big yellow funnel to wave me in.

Yeah something big and bright. I have a tendency of forgetting to look out for the board.

We used the Digital version from http://www.blackandgray.com/

A Pit Board can be as simple as "PIT IN" written with a Sharpie on a card board or as complicated as a 3 lined digital board.

We told our riders their lap times, positions, lap difference +1/-2 from the competitors, gas stop, pit stop, extend etc with our digital board.

I can easily say it helped us win a position atleast twice n 2009 just by giving our riders vital information...

You be the best judge of how indept of a board you want !

For 2010 I'd like to experiment with in-helmet radio communications.

since we lack most comm skills and our first BBE coming quick,i think we will also go with some sort of radio comm.........maybe something like one of those chatter boxes......if legal to use.
its gonna be fun either way.

We used to have a 3'x5' dry earse board. Got some bright colored vinyl decals for our bike number for the rider to see. With the dry earse, we could write lap times, pit in, time out, or even short messages to the rider.
