      One of the biggest problems when using interior cockpit lighting to illuminate Special Stage Pace Notes or Pacenotes, is the rigidity of the light fixing. This became very apparent when viewing in-car footage on a WRC World Cup Rally Championship, with 'works' Drivers and Co-Drivers battling it out for those vital split seconds. Obviously when the cockpit light is not rigid, it produces both flickering and dithering light patterns onto the Co Drivers Pacenotes, which could lead to a minor mis-read or mis-call resulting in a catastrophic result.

      Don Barrow set about testing various theories to produce such a light for reading Pacenotes to eliminate the above problems and after testing several prototypes and numerous lighting units, he finally found the exact solution. The key to it's success is the specially designed and built to order 'Special Lighting Unit, which is built into a 9.2 cm section of Safety Devices approved Roll Cage Padding and the 'Special Lighting Unit' is embedded internally, once embedded it cannot be removed without totally destroying the light body.

      To eliminate dithering and shaking of the light on Pacenotes meant strapping the lighting unit tightly to the cars non-vibrating Roll Cage, this is achieved with a Nylon tie which is supplied together with the appropriate switch and fitting kit.

      The end product was so good that Don tested it on a Historic Rally for illuminating a set of Don Barrow - Average Speed Tables, with great effect. The immediate obvious benefit for both Driver and Navigator was that there was little surplus light spilling into the car cockpit to distract the Driver, simply because the lighting is polarized or polarised and only illuminates the area which it comes into contact with. If you want more light on your Pacenotes - simply mount two units side by side.

      At least two of the major WRC Works Teams are using Don Barrow's Pro-Pacelights for their Team cars together with several private crews who also have seen the advantage of utilising such a clever device as the Don Barrow Pro Pacenotes light, and what's more, the total weight of the unit is only 42 grams.

      When ordering it is imperative to measure your Roll Cage at the point where you intend to locate it, the units are available in four sizes, 1¼" or 32 mm, 1½" or 38 mm, 1¾" or 45 mm, 2" or 50 mm and need to be ordered to suit your installation. Fitting a smaller unit to larger tubing will restrict the amount of light and impair it's performance, fitting a large unit to smaller tubing will totally destroy the light body. When not attached to Roll Cage tubing the units must be handled with care, but once attached they are as strong as Safety Devices Roll Cage Padding was intended. If you require more light for your Pacenotes, then simply use two units next to one another. Supplied with switch and approximately 1.4 metres of flex which is long enough to reach the switch mounted in your console panel.

      Pro-Pacelite is available for 6 -18 volt vehicles in various lighting unit combinations and has two modes of light, White for Pacenotes and Red for non-Pacenote duties like reading Tulip type Road Books or Average Speed Tables, Red lighting is more pleasing to the human eye than any other colour and is a welcome rest for tired eyes. All rollcage light models sometimes known as light bars will fit roll cages manufactured with certification or certified MSA approval and made by OMP, Autopower, Sparco, Whitbread, North Off Road, Custom Cages, PUV and more. So don't wait until it gets dark to find you cannot read your Pace Notes or Pacenotes clearly, get yourselves organised and fit your Rally car out before it's too late. Always check out the Pacenote Forums for tips and tricks for your next event.

Questions like, how to make Pacenotes, how to write Pacenotes, how to use Pacenotes, how to read Pacenotes, can be answered below.

Pacenotes are used to guide the crew of a Rally car through a Special Stage, Test, Prime, Selective or Selectif, hopefully in a quicker and safer fashion and are used in all Classes of Motorsport and Rallying, whether Club, Clubman, National, International or World Rally Championship WRC status.
Pace Notes are made prior to the actual event by a recce or reconnaissance crews, these can be either the Driver and Co-Driver or Co-Pilot or Navigator or by the event's designated Pacenote provider, e.g. Patterson Pacenotes. When Pacenoting, the recce car drives the Stage at a slow speed and whoever is the experienced member of the crew assesses the road in front and dictates to the Pace Notes editor, who in turn writes down the Notes in a clear and precise way. These can either be in the number or descriptive system, whichever the crew are happy at using.
Pacenotes can be made in Irish, English, Welsh, Scottish, German, Finnish, Swedish, Nordic, Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, Russian, American, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Cypriot, Maltese, Australian, Canadian, Swiss, Japanese, Chinese, Austrian, Austrailian, New Zealand, Madeira, Polish, Brazillian, Meican, Hungarian, Turkish, Indonesian, Estonian, Uruaguan, Indian, Taiwanese, Korean, Romanian, Malaysian, Israeli, Latvian, Colombian, Ukrainian, Latvian, Nigerian, Venezualian, Icelandic, Bulgarian, Peruvian, Slovenian, Yugoslavian, Bosnian, Tunisian, Ethopian, Algerian languages.
Which can then be used in the following Countries, Ireland, Eireland, Wales, Scotland, England, Germany, Finland,Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Netherlands, France, Italy, Russia, America, USA, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, China, Austria, australia, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, Hungary, Turkey, Indonesia, Asia, Estonia, Uraguay, India, Taiwan, Korea, Romania, Malaya, Israel, Latvia, Colombia, Ukrania, Latvia, Nigeria, Venezuala, Iceland, Bulgaria, Peru, Slovenia,Yugoslavia, Bosnia, Tunisia, Etheopia, Algeria countries.
Once the Stage is Pacenoted, certain Rallies allow the Competitors to have the option of trying out their Rally Pace Notes at a slightly increased speed, but no way at Rally speed. These sections are usually observed for any form of dangerous or excessive speed and this pre-practise allows the Competitor to adjust or upgrade their Notes, thus making it much safer at true Rally speeds. When the crew is satisfied with their modified Notes, these are usually re-written and compiled in order of Stage use, into a Rally Pacenote Book. Some of the more professional outfits have mobile equipment for producing 'easily read' Notes, but whoever or whatever system is used, it is imperitive they are double checked to ensure they read exactly as the original un-modified versions.

Naturally all Stages are not run in daylight, therefore you have to equip your Rally Car with the right equipment to be able to read your Pace Notes in the dark by lighting or illuminating your Pacenotes. So check out www.pacenotes.com
