The Banana Joe's MkIIIC (former Jim Mathews Racing) is equipped with a Megaline sequential paddle-shift mechanism located on the steering wheel.  The paddle shifters control a pneumatic unit which actuates the gear change. 
The pneumatic unit is located behind the engine on the right hand side of the engine bay.  Based on input from the paddle shifter, it sends the air charge that then initiates the correct gear change. 
This valve on the gearbox actually completes the change.
