Cool video. Tony is indeed a legend. And hilarious to watch his dance to receive his trophy.

Is the BASE race just based on forward speed? First to cross a certain point on the ground wins?

Here you see the WBR finish line system. Two plumbed lines, and when you lay under and see one, you see straight up.

First person to cross the finish line win his heat, and goes on to next round, until there is no more competers to beat!

Timing is just a reference or we need to fill inn with jumpers who is disqualified. This year it was two who had less than 30 seconds canopy time, and we had to fill in the bronze final with the two best loosers from the quarter final.

We also use photo finish for close races https://www.facebook.com/...ype=3&permPage=1

Indeed! I think I saw it before but didn't know it was eyes and camera (if necessary) that did it.

How do you deal with false starts?

Disqualification false starts.

False start is when last feet leaves exit before startsignal!
