In order to watch too much racing you will need to know when it happens. 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 ICAL or HTML formats.
Just click the link for the series you want to import and it will appear in your calendar.

24H Series: Creventic now runs the 24H Endurance Series and the 24H Touring Car Endurance Series. I have included both series in a single calendar. I’ve not included the Proto Series because I usually wait a year before adding a new series.
Why should you use the IWTMR Calendars?
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.
– One calendar per series.
Pick the championships that interest you without getting lots of dates you don’t care about.
In Google Calendar you can colour-code each championship, e.g. you could make all the endurance series green, single-seater series red, or rally series brown (for dirt..!).
– Dates only.
This service is a guide only. Once you know the day of the event it is your responsibility to check the timing and your local TV or Radio coverage. Sorry, I don’t have time to track start times! These are announced much later than race dates, sometimes only a day or two before the race. I cover 30 series, I can’t monitor them on a weekly basis. And they can vary from their published start time. There is also the issue of timezone conversion.
– Races only.
Races are more important. Races are why we are all here. Once you know the date of a race you can roughly work out when qualifying and practice will be. Use these Calendar dates as a reminder to check the official timetable. I tried tracking individual sessions in 2011, you’d be amazed how frequently they got moved! They also add clutter, you couldn’t ever find the races, it was a messy nightmare. Clarity is better.
– No TV times.
The internet is global. I don’t know where you live!
– Round numbers.
Event titles include “R1”, “R2”, etc. This means “Round 1”, “Round 2”. I try to mirror the way the championship does it but sometimes I had to make it up. Some series might have two races in a weekend and call them “Round 1” and “Round 2”. Another series might have two races in a weekend and call them “Round 1 Race 1″ and”Round 1 Race 2”. Or, “Sprint” and “Feature”. This varies so much from series to series I’ve probably got this wrong somewhere.
– Multiple Races & Multi-Day Events.
If a series has two or more races in one day (WTCC, BTCC), I set up ONE event for THAT DAY and note in the title how many races are held that day. Example: BTCC (3 Races), WTCC (2 Races).
If a series has two or more races across a weekend (GP2, DTM), I set up a new event for EACH DAY.
Endurance events such as 24-hour races and stage rallies are listed as a single event spread across multiple days (not including Recce or Practice).
– ‘Misc’ calendar.
Catch-all. It includes such things as the Dakar Rally, Goodwood Festival of Speed, 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 for the 2012 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! Or that racing isn’t going to clash with it. It is heavily biased toward sports I watch.

Add these into your calendar systems or make a copy for your own personal use. Please make sure if you are editing the events, or adding other things, that you are doing so to your own copy and not the publicly-available lists! Those MUST remain unchanged. I *think* I turned off the option for editing, but I’m never sure..
Your usage does not imply that I endorse what you do with it, so don’t make something and then tell people I endorse it, if you haven’t asked.
If you’re with a race team you can use them in any way you like.
I receive no benefit from doing these, commercial or otherwise.
This service is only a guide. If you miss a race based on an error in the calendars, do not blame me! It is up to you to make sure.
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!
