Specific Events User Guide


Live Data Connection

3 type of connections will be available:

Both Al Kamel V2 connections will perform the same and use the exact same protocol. Currently, it is our understanding than none of the extended feature of this protocol available in other series (GPS information and additional sector line) will be available.

We are also expecting that the replay with all the sector lines to be available in the IMSA Timing protocol post-event.

To connect live to an IMSA event, you need to setup your championship configuration with the following parameters:

Protocol

Protocol IMSA Timing
Host 192.168.74.12
Port 10030

Additional Option

It happens that some wrong best lap time correction message get send on the IMSA Timing protocol. This can lead to laps not being displayed when replaying/activating a session. If this is the case the option can be set to True. By default, the option is at False.

Championship Filter

For any series, it is possible to filter the session that gets recorded on a project by using the Championship filter.

For example, for 2022 and for the IWSC championship, it is possible to use the following settings:

Championship Filter Enabled True
Allow String IWSC

This settings would only "allow" session that have the word "IWSC" in them. This would block any session that doesn't contain the word "IWSC" like all the IMPC or LMPC series for example. The advantage to use a championship filter is that your project stays "clean" of any other series categories and car information.

Championship Regulations

For 2022, the championship regulations should be set as follow:

Fuel and Tires in Parallel True
