Regular customers to the Coach Dave Academy, or viewers of any broadcast at the SimGrid will, no doubt, be familiar with the Race Sync product.
Race Sync is a live timing application for Assetto Corsa Competizione that gives you a detailed overview of offline and online races you’re competing in. You can use Race Sync to track strategies, motivate your teammates, and beat the competition.
When I first created Race Sync, my plan was to ‘fix’ the live timing interface in ACC. I felt that it was missing vital information, like live gaps and proper segmentation and ordering of leaders and backmarkers. I set out to design a new interface for the timing tower that could be used on a second screen when playing ACC.
As more and more users started to use the app we started to get requests for new features and bug fixes. As ACC has evolved the attention required to keep Race Sync up to date has become more difficult than I anticipated.
As a result, it has not received the same attention as our other products and this frustrated me.
I wanted to come up with a solution for Race Sync users, to give you a better experience with Live Timing. So I contacted Pitwall.live and have managed to come up with a solution that you will hopefully appreciate.
