Become a better driver

The data provided by SmartRace Connect helps you to improve as a driver. You can see all your lap and sector times for the current session, as well as your average lap time (with the option to easily exclude individual “outliers” from the calculation).

Did you know? If you wish, you can also have SmartRace Connect send you lots of information directly to your ears via the pit radio add-on (ideally with headphones).

Built-in “Chaos Button”

Full control

To allow any connected driver to quickly interrupt the race, SmartRace Connect has a built-in chaos button. Best of all, you can also set whether drivers who interrupt the race in this way should automatically receive a time penalty, which they must then serve in the pits (requires the penalty add-on).

Questions about SmartRace Connect

Which devices and versions are supported?
SmartRace Connect runs on tablets as well as smartphones. However, to keep an eye on the race at all times and to use the vibration alarm, you should use a smartphone that you can hold comfortably in your hand. You can use the app both upright and sideways. SmartRace Connect is available for Android and iOS.
What requirements must be met?

In order for SmartRace Connect to connect to SmartRace, both devices must be on the same wifi and the devices must be able to see each other. The devices on which SmartRace Connect is running do not need to have Bluetooth, as the connection runs purely via wifi. Therefore, you should make sure that you have a stable and fast wifi connection where your track is located.

What does SmartRace Connect cost?

SmartRace Connect itself is free of charge. In order to use the SmartRace Connect server in SmartRace, you must purchase the corresponding add-on once. You can see the price for this in SmartRace.
