Calendar

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.

Why Use These Calendars?

Agenda for 13th June 2015 and the following few days (click for large)

I’ve been updating these since the 2011 racing season. Many decisions have been taken with experience, such as to make the usability the best it can be and to reduce the admin overhead. I will always listen to feedback but that doesn’t always mean I’ll implement it!

One series = One calendar
Pick championships that interest you without getting lots of dates for things you don’t care about.

Customise
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 why we are all here. Races are most important. Practice sessions clutter the feed meaning you can’t find the races. Clarity is better.
When you know the race day you can go to the series website to look up other session times. Use these calendars as a tool to remind you which weekend a race happens.

Dates, Not Times
Sorry, it is a big job for me to track race start times! These are announced much later than race dates, sometimes only days before a race. I cover 30+ series, I just 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 streaming coverage is available where you are.

Event Titles
Event titles are as consistent as possible:

A short series name, the round number, the event title.

F1 [R1] Australian Grand Prix
IndyCar [R5]
Indianapolis 500
WEC [R3] 24 Heures du Mans

I sometimes have to remove sponsor names for brevity, especially for NASCAR, some of those race names are incredible, so
NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series [R22] Helluva Good Sour Cream Dips At The Glen
becomes
NASCAR Cup [R22] Watkins Glen

This is because I’m aware a lot of people, including me, use these on their mobile phone screensavers and you actually want to be able to read it!

Different series number their races in different ways. e.g. one series of 30 races may choose to have 30 individual round numbers (BTCC), another series of 20 races may choose to have 10 rounds and call them ’round 1 race 1′, ’round 1 race 2′, or ’round 1 feature race’ and ’round 1 sprint race’ (FIA F2). I try to mirror the way the championship does it but I’ve probably got this wrong somewhere, so just use this as a guide and consult the championship itself for the correct numbers.

Many series have two or three races per weekend. I merge multiple races in a day into a single entry, but if there are different races over 2 days they get one entry per day. A single race over 2 days, like Le Mans, will have one entry lasting 24 hours.

All rallies are listed as single events lasting 3 or 4 days.

Example entries:
Apr 3:  BTCC -R1,R2,R3- Brands Hatch

May 7:  DTM – R1 – Hockenheim
May 8:  DTM – R2 – Hockenheim

‘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 and isn’t updated very often.

  1. BSB and NHRA will be soon. My plan now is to fill the gaps alphabetically by championship because then I won’t accidentally miss anything. Every year I miss a series because I’m jumping up and down the list! I’m also taking breaks, because after doing all the above series it has become laborious.

    Since I last posted an update here I have completed:
    GP2, GP3, Formula V8 3.5 World Series, British GT, FIA World Rallycross.

    I’m next going to do, in this order:
    Britcar, BSB, FIA European Drag Racing, (I’m not sure whether to do European Rallycross), Global Rallycross, GT Open, NHRA, Pirelli World Challenge, Super Formula, Super GT, TCR International, VA Supercar (which was V8 Supercar).

    Once this is done I will be adding ADAC GT and maybe VLN.

    I may also make a ‘Major Races’ calendar copying the big races into one place. I think there might be people who only care about the Indy 500 or Le Mans 24 or Daytona 500 or Monaco GP, or whatever else, and who don’t really care about the rest of the season in the particular championship. You could argue such people wouldn’t be visiting this site, but you never know.. 🙂

    I really do appreciate all the support and thank you all very much – it genuinely does keep me going when I feel like giving up.

    I had the idea of moving this to its own site, or swapping it so Calendar was the main thing and the blog was the side project, but I’m not smart enough or dedicated enough to work it all out.

  3. Thank you Patrick.

    I just share this page on the facebook page of Roberto Gonzalez, Mexico´s only WEC series driver. I hope you get many downloads from there since Im Roberto´s community manager

    Thanks again!

  4. Troy – Sorry I’ve just looked at the World of Outlaws sprint calendar and lost count somewhere over 50 events, I’m not doing all of that..

    Deb – I worked on Supercars only last night, so hopefully you can see the dates now! It is listed 2nd in the Touring Car section.

    Aron – Nice, thanks! I hope it proves popular with Roberto’s fans. He should have a good season with Manor.

  6. Totally awesome site and information. It has made my days with my son, extra special as I never miss an event to spend with him. 🙂

  7. Can’t believe I’ve only just found this site, been manually adding calendars to my iPhone (except F1 which has its own) for the last 2-3 years.
    I’ll definitely be sharing this site with a few people, so thank you for your efforts in creating such a fantastic resource!!
    Awesome that the only races I’ll now have to add manually are is the UK Legends, as my partner races in this series (support to BTRC British Truck’s).

  8. This is quite possibly the greatest thing on the planet (for me at least!). I’ve done this manually for the last couple of years and never knew about this website.

    You are an absolute star Patrick. I genuinely think you should have a Donate by PayPal button on your site – I’d happily contribute something because I know from experience how much work you have put into this.

    Any plans to add the MSA British Rallycross Championship calendar? (If not I’m more than happy to give you the 2017 dates in CSV format, to create a calendar to add here?)

    Thanks so so much, and all the best,
    Yohan

    PS If you ever need any help, please let me know – this is a resource that cannot be allowed to die

  9. I was just looking for a Motorsport calendar in the App Store and cannot justify spending money to buy information that is freely available on the web. Thanks for putting this info up and thanks for all the work you do putting it together. I did do this myself for the past 10 or so years as a paper calendar. Paper doesn’t travel well so I need something electronic now. Thanks again.
