2015 update in progress. This page will be updated when complete and a comment made below.
Last year saw a big update, this year I don’t forsee any major changes or additions to the roster of calendars.
I am trialling the addition of a round number in the title, e.g. R5 for Round 5. This might yet be moved to the Description. I’m not sure how many services pick up the Description field.
Pros & Cons
Why should you use the IWTMR Calendars? Here are the positives – and some of the things I haven’t been able to include. I happen to think those are positives as well because they keep the feeds tidy!
– One calendar per series.
Sign up to the racing you are interested in without getting loads of dates you don’t care about. Just pick the championships that interest you.
– For guidance only.
Use this service to find out which weekend a race is happening or what’s on this weekend. Then go to the series website to find out the details of other sessions and the race start time.
- Race Events only.
Practice & Qualifying sessions clutter up the feeds and they are prone to being rescheduled, more so than races. I’ve therefore chosen to set up Event dates showing the date a race is being held. What’s important is the racing! Once you know that you can look up the up-to-date event timetable on the series website.
– No TV times.
I don’t know where you live!
- Multiple Races
If a series has 2 or 3 races in one day I set up ONE event date and note ‘2 races’ or ‘3 races’ in the title.
If a series has 2 or 3 races across two days I set up an entry PER DAY. The exception to this rule is for rallying which receives one entry for the whole event.
- Endurance Races
24-hour races have one Event spread over both days.
– ‘Misc’ calendar
Catch-all calendar for standalone events such as the Dakar Rally, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival, Isle of Man TT, Nurburgring 24 Hours, Bathurst 12 Hours.
– ‘Other Sport’ calendar
I made for my own benefit in 2012 for the Olympics & Paralympics. It is useful in its own right as well as to check for motorsport clashes against other big sports events.
I’ve been running these calendars since the 2011 racing season. I like to think I’m getting good at it but I still miss things, and dates are changed sometimes without me noticing. If you see any errors or would like to see any additions please let me know.
If you find these useful please do share them. Spread the word!
One last thing – please DO NOT add your own events to these lists. Make your own separate calendar for that. I will remove unauthorised items. I think I turned off the option for you to add items but I can never be sure.
I’ve included all three links provided to me by the system. Try them and pick the best one suited to your app.
For Google Calendar: click the HTML link then click the +GoogleCalendar icon on the bottom right.
For Apple devices (iPhone, iPad): click the ICAL link
The series official website is on the left, the name in the middle and three calendar options on the right, and if you aren’t sure which to use try them one at a time until one works the way you want it.
