I don't understand why changing a transponder and not notifying the race director (or the driver) resulting in the delay penalty is controversial. Can anyone explain?

Excerpt below from Neobuggy:

The 2014 Australian Buggy National Titles is in the books with 179 of Australia and New Zealand’s best drivers doing battle for the title. Kyosho sensation, Kyle McBride, would cruise his way to victory with the onslaught taking place behind him. Kyosho/Max Racing driver, Aaron Stringer, struggled in qualifying but was able to bump up from the 1/8 Final, to the 1/4 Final, to the Semi Final, and eventually into the Final. A transponder change before the start of the race penalized Stringer, moving him from 2nd on the grid to 15th (a controversial move by the race director). Stringer attacked the field working his way up to third. The battle raged between Stringer and Craig Laughton for second. Stringer eventually took over the position finishing a strong second behind McBride, with Laughton finishing third.

I would suggest it would be that with other timing systems when some one crosses the loop during the warm up laps its as easy as attach the new transponder to the drivers name and keep things rolling as its does on RC Scoring Pro, you can just add a transponder or even a new racer on the fly keeping things going with out delays.

Sam, I don't know much about timing systems but if Slyfox can't do this and the race had to be stopped, the race director's course of action would seem appropriate?

Yeah unfortunately I forgot to take Casey's book for him to sign. I was a bit disappointed that he did't show, could've been a draw card for the event. Imagine photo's of him on neo or somewhere else giving the sport excellent exposure.

I wasn't there, although I'd imagine he realised the transponder wasn't working just before the A-main commenced, then calling a 5 minute delay to change it out. The normal penalty for calling a delay is a pitlane start isn't it?
