Why use the IWTMR Calendars?
First a disclaimer: I’ve been running these calendars since the 2011 racing season. Many decisions have been taken with experience, to make the usability the best it can be and to reduce the admin overhead. I will always listen to feedback!
– One calendar per series.
Pick 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..!).
– Races only.
Races are more important. Races are why we are all here. Once you know the race day you can work out roughly when qualifying and practice will be. Use these 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 find the races hidden among 100 practice sessions for different championships. Clarity is better.
– Dates only, not times.
This service is a guide only. Once you know the day of the event it is your responsibility to check the timing. Sorry, it is a big job for me to track race 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. There is also the issue of timezone conversion.
– No TV times.
I don’t know where you live! The internet is global. It is up to you to find out what TV, radio and online coverage is available where you are.
– “-R-” round numbers.
Event titles are marked “-R1-“, “-R2-“, etc. This means “Round 1”, “Round 2”.
Some series have two or three races per weekend and every race that year has its own race number. BTCC does this, so the final Brands Hatch meeting is for Rounds 28, 29 and 30.
Some series have two races in a weekend and call them like V8 Supercars “Round 1 (Race 1)” and”Round 1 (Race 2)”, or like GP2 it is “Round 1 (Sprint)” and “Round 1 (Feature)”.
I try to mirror the way the championship does it but I’ve probably got this wrong somewhere, again just use this as a guide.
– Multiple races & multi-day events.
Two or more races in one day have one event for the day.
Apr 3: BTCC -R1,R2,R3- Brands Hatch
Two or more races in a weekend have a new event for each day of competition.
May 7: DTM – R1 – Hockenheim
May 8: DTM – R2 – Hockenheim
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.
