As each car passes the finish line and the finish place is displayed on the screen, the lane number and race time
is sent to the computer through the USB link.  

To run another race, the start gate is placed in the up [closed] position.  It is optional as to whether the reset
button is used to clear the LED display as in Figure 2 and 2a.  If the display is not cleared, when the start gate is
opened to start the next race, the display will automatically show the race running as in Figure 3 and 3a and the
correct times will be recorded.
