TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 21, 2017) -- The Sports Car Club of America® has unveiled a new, free Tire Rack National Solo mobile app for smartphones just in time for the 2017 Tire Rack Solo National Championship. The app, available for Apple and Android devices, replaces the text notification system utilized the last few years.
The primary purpose of this simple mobile app is to provide push notifications. Competitors will receive information on the status of heats so drivers know when cars should be on Grid, or when participants should check in for work assignments. Updates will also be provided about groups that do not have enough competitors to make a class, and keep people abreast of impending weather. Along with push notifications, the app contains links to live scoring, the event schedule, and Run/Work order.
The app can be downloaded through the Apple App Store or Android Google Play Store by searching for “SCCA National Solo.” Once downloaded, be sure to turn on the notification functionality. For Solo Nationals, users then select from a list of 10 different notifications they wish to receive on smartphones, including general Solo Nationals information and ProSolo Finale updates.
For those without an Android or Apple device, announcements will still be made over public address systems on each course. However, it is highly suggested that those without an Android or Apple device communicate frequently with other participants who do have said devices.
