Simple Lap Timer

hope this is the correct section to post this in.
I'm looking to buy or build a simple, single car, single lap timer that goes out to 1/100th second. Ideally, it would be a break beam system of sorts, a moving car trips the clock, and stops it when it completes the lap.

I've been all over the web trying to find something similar but no real luck so far.

will do, want to try the aforementioned zip zap timers first.
Thanks Dan, I looked at your site, very interesting device.
I'm being sent a zip zap (Radio Shack) version from a member on here to try out, will post info, results, etc. as I get them.
Tried a zip zap timer, decided to try a microsizer timer as well. The microsizer worked like a charm, perfect for my needs. Thanks much Gary and Al!

Unfortunately, our Spanish timekeeper Manual Stopwatch was forced into retirement. We wish him well.:D
