MARRS Bracket Racing in 2018

Last year, Chuck Edmondson did a great amount of work to get Bracket Racing off the ground at Summit Point.  Bracket Racing let’s cars of all makes and models go out and compete in time “brackets” instead of classes.  In 2018, each of the “home” events at Summit Point will feature a bracket race – starting with MARRS 1 next week!

I am pleased to announce that now supports Bracket Racing online!  Watch the bracket race in the browser on your phone, PC or iPad while you are at home or at the track.

You can also watch other races as they progress as well – but there is no need for that as Race-Monitor already does that well – and the data all comes from Race-Monitor anyway (aside from the bracket boundaries).

In general, the bracket racing system will not update unless it is a MARRS race weekend.  Today, I have it monitoring the Road Atlanta Porsche Club event that is going on so people can see it live.  I adjusted the brackets to fit the Road Atlanta times a little better. 

Thank you to Chuck for the bracket racing idea, and for asking me to see if I could build it into for spectators (and mostly the announcers) to see who was winning each bracket.  I hope the software helps, it was fun figuring out how to build it.
