Colour Codes

Yellow

Default display colour.

Red

Indicates cars exiting and entering the pits. When a car leaves the pits the word OUT is displayed in the time column. The car number and driver name appears in red until that car goes through the first sector when it will revert to its normal colour. When a car enters the pits the words IN PIT are displayed in the time column. The car number and driver name is shown in red and reverts to its normal colour after a short period of time.

White

Indicates the most recent information available for that driver (e.g. a white sector time is the information for the sector just completed).

Green

Indicates a personal best for that driver and may relate to individual sector times as well as a lap time.

Magenta

Indicates the overall best in that session and may relate to individual sector times as well as a lap time.

Grey

Used in qualifying only. Indicates drivers who have been knocked out in the first or second qualifying phase and are therefore no longer eligible to participate in the session.

STOP

Appears in place of the sector information in the event of a car not completing that sector, indicating that in all probability the car has stopped on the circuit.

OUT

Appears in place of the sector information to indicate that a car has just exited the pits.

IN PIT

Appears in place of the sector information to indicate a car has just entered the pits. A line showing the personal best time in each sector for that car in the current session is displayed in yellow after the car has been in the pits for 15 seconds.

Race Info

The screen appears at the start of the Race with the cars in grid order. On the first lap of the Race the screen will update the order as the cars cross each sector position.

Column Descriptions

Position (P)

Current position in the session.

Car Number

Car number.

Name

Driver's name.

Gap

Difference between that driver and the leader the last time that driver crossed the finish line.

Interval

Difference between that driver and the driver immediately above the last time they crossed the finish line.
N.B. If the interval the last time they crossed the finish line is less than the previous time then it will be shown in white (i.e. the driver is gaining on the one in front). If the interval the last time they crossed the finish line is equal to or greater than the previous time then it will be shown in yellow (i.e. the driver is either static or losing ground to the one in front).
N.B. The Gap & Interval column for the leading driver always shows the number of laps completed, rather than the Gap and Interval information for that driver.

Time

The last completed lap time.

Sector information

As a car laps the circuit its time is recorded at three positions, known as Sector 1, Sector 2 and Sector 3 (Finish line).

Sector 1

The time taken from the finish line to the first sector position.

Sector 2

The time taken from the first sector position to the second sector position.

Sector 3 (Finish line)

The time taken from the second sector position to the finish line.

Pit

Indicates the number of pit stops currently completed in the race by that driver.

As each car crosses the finish line the car number and drivers name is shown in white. When the leader crosses the finish line all other names revert to yellow.

After 10 laps if a driver has not completed 90% of the distance covered by the leader then the position number does not appear.

While the Live Timing System should run without major issues in older browsers, we have not actively tested them and generally do not fix bugs that may appear in them.

If you are having trouble viewing the Live Timing System you may find the following information useful:

Q: I see old data on the Live Timing System page.

A: Once a session is finalised the data remains on the page and is no longer updated from the feed. Generally the data is cleared down and reset 5 minutes before the next session starts.

Q: The race has started but the data is not updating.

A: The page requires JavaScript to function so please ensure that you are using a browser with JavaScript enabled. The Live Timing System works best in the latest browsers so if you are using an old browser then please update it to the latest version.

Q: The page was updating regularly but has suddenly stopped updating.

A: The page may have lost connection to the Live Feed - try refreshing the page to see if reconnection fixes the issue. Please be aware that during high traffic the page may be slow or experience slight delays in updating.
