Adding Youtube videos to your laps means that all of a sudden, your laps are a lot more interesting even to people who are not racing themselves. So we figured you might want to share your laps with people who don’t have a Serious-Racing account, and now you can!
The shared lap will look a lot like the lap interface you are already used to:
Check out one of Tom’s shared laps here.
Lots of people have asked us to be able to compare with more of their friends’ laps, rather than just the fastest one. While this is not yet possible with share right now, it will be the very next thing we work on, so stay tuned!
Read more about sharing on our Help page.
If you have videos of your laps on Youtube, you can now add these to your laps. This is what it will look like on a big screen:
Simply select the lap you want to add video to and tap ‘Edit’. Fill in the Youtube link and exact time where the selected lap starts in the video and save. Read more about how it works in our Help section.
Please note that at the moment you don’t get speed and graph updates on mobile, because of a bug in the Youtube API. We hope this gets fixed soon so that we can show you your speed and video together from any device!
Next time you log in to Serious-Racing you’ll see we’ve added a list of what’s new to your home page. This will include things like friend notifications and lap uploads.
This way you’ll be able to keep up to date with what your friends are doing on Serious-Racing – take a look now.
When you next log in to Serious-Racing, you might notice some changes. We have been very busy for the past couple of months to simplify the interface, making it quicker and slicker. Let me take you through some of the new bits and explain what has changed and why.
1. Track search
In the tracks dropdown menu, you now find a track search bar. This makes it easier to find tracks you haven’t been to. Plan for the future is to add a lot more information about tracks so that you can prepare for your next track day on a track you haven’t been to before.
2. Your laps
We now have the weather! This makes it easier to select laps with similar weather conditions for comparisons.
Click on each day to display all the laps, and click again to hide it and focus on a different day.
The new buttons at the top are ‘View’, for viewing up to four of your own laps, and ‘Compare’: select one of your laps to compare with a friend. The buttons ‘Your laps’ and ‘Track info’ let you easily switch between the two.
3. Profile page
Your profile looks a bit different now, with more space for your pride and joy, your cars or bikes. If you are lucky enough to have more than one vehicle, your primary one is displayed bigger. To change your primary vehicle, click on the vehicle you want to change it to, then check ‘This is my primary vehicle’ on the edit page.
These are the three biggest changes. We hope you like them and that you will convince even more friends to sign up. For all your feedback and ideas, please talk to us on Facebook or Twitter.
