Calendar

* 2015 Ready! *

In order to watch too much racing you will need to know when it is on. Keep up with your favourite racing series by adding IWTMR Calendars to your Google Calendar, Apple iCal (iOS/iPhone/iPad), Microsoft Outlook, or any other service which supports the XML, ICAL or HTML formats.

Just click the link for the series you want to import and it will appear in your calendar.

Scroll down to the table below to pick your championships!

2015 update complete.

I’ve updated all calendars for the dates announced as of 31st January 2015.

Not announced:
– Super Formula

Series Added:
– Pirelli World Challenge

Series Deleted:
– (none)

I’m trialling the addition of a round number in the title, e.g. R5 = Round 5. Let’s see if it works or if it makes it too cluttered. At the moment I’m using the event number not the specific race number.


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 these are positives as well because it keeps 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. You can also colour-code them whichever way you want, e.g. brown for rally, green for endurance.

Dates only.
Sorry but I don’t have the time to track race start times. You’d be surprised how late some of them are confirmed, often not until race week and quite late in race week. I cover over 30 series and I can’t monitor them on a weekly basis. They can vary from their published schedule for reasons of weather or force majeure – I don’t like being held liable for you missing a race because the series moved it! Please use these calendars for guidance and check your local or online coverage.

- Races only.
Races are more important. Please use these as ‘event reminders’ rather than ‘session reminders’. With experience, I found if you enable more than seven or eight calendars at once the sheer volume of practice & qualifying sessions overwhelm it and you lose sight of any Saturday races. It becomes unreadable. Clarity is better. This system allows you to note a race is happening this weekend and look up the schedule on their website. As with the ‘dates only’ bit above, practice sessions are even more likely to be rescheduled than are races, so it is futile trying to keep up with them all.

No TV times.
I don’t know where you live!

- Multiple Races & Multi-Day Events
If a series has two or more races in one day I set up ONE event date and note ‘2 races’ or ‘3 races’ in the title.
If a series has two or more races across a weekend I set up an entry for EACH DAY.
Endurance events like 24-hour races and stage rallies have a single event spread across the running of the main event.

‘Misc’ calendar
Catch-all calendar. Includes such things as the Dakar Rally, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival, Isle of Man TT, Nurburgring 24 Hours, Bathurst 12 Hours and anything else that pops into my head.

‘Other Sport’ calendar
I made this for my own benefit in 2012 for the Olympics & Paralympics. I like to know that I’m not going to miss the Tour de France or the FA Cup Final or the Six Nations. With that in mind it is heavily biased toward things I care about!

I’ve been running these calendars since the 2011 racing season. Many of these decisions have been taken with experience to make the usability the best it can be and to reduce the admin overhead.

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. I think I have now turned off the option for you to add items but I can never be sure..


Calendar List

I’ve included all three links provided to me by Google Calendar. Try them and pick the best one suited to your app.

For Google Calendar:   click the HTML link then click the +GoogleCalendar icon at the bottom right.

For Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac):   tap the ICAL link

Some things may prefer you copy & paste the XML link.

If in doubt try all three until one works the way you want it.

Clicking the series shortname will take you to their website.

  1. Fantastic effort! I missed the first rounds of BTCC and WRC because I didn’t have a calendar. Thanks to these, I won’t miss anymore. Duly bookmarked in the hope you’ll do them for next year too. :)

  2. Wayne, yes I plan to do these every year and I start putting them together in February or late Jan, so keep an eye out then! If you stay subscribed to the calendars though, the new events should appear automatically in 2012. I hope.

    Nlque, I’m never sure what to include or not to include. I’ll see if I can get a BSB calendar on there over the weekend.

    Thanks for the comments. :)

  5. Thanks all, much appreciated. :)
    There will be a 2012 version, I’m waiting for some of the dates to become more solid because there’s a lot yet to be confirmed: will F1 and WEC go to Bahrain, will F1 go to Austin, when will IndyCar and LMS announce dates.

    I may make a start on some of the other series in the next week or two. I’m also considering merging the calendars so instead of one calendar per series there’s per theme, e.g. ‘Major Open Wheel’, ‘Endurance’, ‘Junior’, ‘Rally’ etc. I’ll see how it looks when I put it together.

    I may have to delete some of the existing ones so be ready to resubscribe. :)

    But I won’t ‘launch’ them properly until early January, I suspect.

    Sorry GNAZ I won’t be doing practice/qualifying this time, except for Indy and Le Mans. For all other events the qualifying sessions are either the same day or the day before, so I thought showing the race day was enough of an indication. For further information see the series websites or local TV listings.

    Euro F3 iCal has somehow corrupted, I can’t make it work so I removed the link. I need to make a new calendar for it without screwing over the people who already subscribed to the current one by other means. Might have to run an identical pair just for this year.

  44. Hey Pat,

    There was one other question that I have. Do I need to re-add the calendars each year or do they automatically update (I’m using the html link and adding to my Google calendar)? Does me renaming them break them?

  45. It depends how you use them. If you import into an online calendar like Google then just scroll along as it ought to update by itself (I hope).
    If you use them offline you will need to re-sync or re-download not just every year but every few months to make sure you have the most recent data..

    As noted above, this year everybody will need to re-download F1 because I changed it.
