“Rowan Digital Side-wheel”

Dear WFTF RGB members,

Two weeks ago Rowan officially launched in the market the “DSW - Digital Side Wheel”.
At the same time a video about the device was published and suddenly I started receiving several emails from
everywhere questioning if the WFTF was going to allow the device or not.

One of my team committee members (Wyan) initiated a contact with Rowan to try to understand more about
the device.
Here the details:

The device can be Programmed to have
“approved competition MODES” with the
authorized functions:

Not applicable

So this means it is
possible to approve
functions

a.

b.

6

WFTF mode
(ex.function1, function2,
function 4)
BFTA mode (ex. Function
2, function 3, function 4)

If a “Authorize MODE” is selected a
symbol on the screen will be available so
that marshals or competitors on the
course can easily see that the DSW is in a
legal mode during a competition

Not applicable

Resuming all this matter is something too big and too important for me to decide so I ask you to help me clarify
this specific matter by giving your opinion.

Bear in mind the following:
a.

If we decide to approve the use of this device then we clear need to have a “WFTF Mode” to control
what are the functions approved or not.

b.

If we approve this device people will start spending money so this is something that we cannot “go
back” just because we are in a different mood….we need to have a strong reasons to go back.

c.

The device is already being used inside BFTA so there are people that can provide us extra information.
We can also try to get extra information from Rowan.

d.

If you have doubts then just say “don’t know”.
The result is the same as “NO” but with that answer we will be able to understand the difference
between a definitely “NO – Not Approved” and “I haven’t made my mind”.

We will start with a month for discussion and voting but if necessary we can increase the period.

Sincerely,
