A cheap XT Racing lap timer. I am definitely going to upgrade to a GPX Pro

the XT Racing Ultra Lap is the pretty standard one used... Then again it has been around for some time... I love mine, it does exactly what I need at the level I am in

Id suggest not getting one. Just ride and focus on your technique and you will get faster. When you get to the point that nobody is passing you, and you get in the zone at the top of lvl 2...then you will be consistent enough to bother with a timer.

Worrying about your lap times being fairly new to the track is not a good thing. Dont distract yourself with one.

instead, get a bike cam...review your video and critique your riding and lines. Find places you can improve and work on things one at a time with each track day. You can also estimate your lap times with the video (after the fact). That way you dont worry about it while at the track, and you can compare each time you go out. Thats my 2 cents
