TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 28, 2017) -- The Sports Car Club of AmericaÂ® has unveiled a new, free SCCA Road Racing mobile app for smartphones just in time for the 2017 SCCAÂ® National Championship RunoffsÂ®. The app is available for Apple and Android devices, and offers helpful information for competitors, workers and spectators.
This simple mobile app will provide push notifications to drivers and workers. Competitors will receive information regarding their car classes, and workers will receive notices about schedule changes, changing weather conditions or end-of-day activities. Along with push notifications, the app contains links to live scoring, the event schedule, and supplemental regulations.
The app can be downloaded through the Apple App Store or Android Google Play Store by searching for â€œSCCA Road Racing.â€ Once downloaded, be sure to turn on the notification functionality. For the Runoffs, users can choose to receive updates on any of the 28 competition classes, and there is a selection for worker notifications.
For those without an Android or Apple device, announcements will still be made over the public address system in the Runoffs paddock. However, it is highly suggested that those without an Android or Apple device communicate frequently with others who do have said devices to make sure theyâ€™re aware of the latest updates.
