[edit] Session Mode

Session Mode is used when there are a small number of cars on the track in each timed qualifying session. The current session count is 5 minutes when running in Session Mode. It is recommended to have judges and extra tower workers in place to help the session move smoothly.


To use Session Mode:

  • Set timer to the desired length using the Time up/down Image:Updownnav.png buttons. (right mouse click on the button changes time +/- 1 second; middle mouse click changes time +/- 10 seconds; left mouse click changes time '+/- 30 seconds).
  • Press the start/stop Image:Startnav.png button to start the session.
    • Times will then be recorded for all cars as they pass the loop.
  • Press the pause Image:Pausenav.png button to pause the timer in the event of a red flag.
    • Times will stop being recorded on pause
  • Use the start/stop Image:stop.png button to end the session.
    • The session will stop recording after the cars pass the loop if they are on the track.


[edit] Single Mode

Single Mode is used when only one car is on the track at a time.

(Note: in Single Mode, only one car is recorded at a time, despite the appearance of multiple cars on the screen, assuming there is only one car on the track.)


To use Single Mode:

  • Press the Green Flag button when the flag person is about to give the green flag but before the car crosses the line.
  • Press the checkered flag button when the flag person is about to throw the checkered flag.
