Super excited to share some new features we’ve been working on! One of our goals is to push race data everywhere people want it. Race groups are becoming more web savvy and we know you want to direct racers, spectators, officials and sponsors to your website to build your brand and audience. That’s where our embedded website widgets come in!
Live Timing Widget
Organizers can copy and paste a short snippet into any web page to embed an automatically-updating live timing feed. If you’re not currently racing, we’ll show previous race results. Here’s an example from a sports car racing organization. They bundled our live timing widget with an announcer stream, play-by-play Twitter feed and Disqus forums to build a single experience for race weekends.
Our widget is responsive and automatically adjusts to your web page height and width. It does not require Flash or plugins meaning it works on any device – smartphones, tablets and computers.
Race Results Widget
Who loves coming home from a long weekend at the track only to have to update your website with all of your results? Didn’t you just print and publish them at the event? Why do you need to take an extra step?
We didn’t know either.
We created an obvious industry first – when you end a session in your timing and scoring software, RaceHero automatically publishes provisional race results within seconds to every device. And that now includes your website! As fast as results appear on your phone, they also appear on your website using our results embed.
Like all results, timing and scoring officials can mark results as official which instantly updates your website eliminating any Monday-morning duties for T&S or race directors while keeping anxious racers and spectators perfectly satisfied.
From trackside to racers and fans on the web – automatically and instantly!
If you’re a racer and would be interested in embedding a live timing widget whenever you’re racing into your website or Facebook fan page, let us know in the comments!
