Introduction

LapMaster is a computer program that handles and controls the execution of a slot car race event.

*  It supports tracks with 1 to 8 lanes.

*  It times and counts the number of laps for each lane and contestant in the race.

*  Every lap is timed with the precision of 1/1000 of a second, and high scores (Track records) are recorded.

*  It times the duration of each stint and intermissions.

*  It manages the execution of an entire race of up to 256 participants, and with all the stages of:
- Registration.
- Qualification.
- Heat racing (Several different modes.)
- Final results and statistics, celebrating victory etc.

*  New lap-records, start-of-race and other features of the race are commented vocally using the audio speakers of the computer.

*  Temporary interruption of the race, “Track calls”, can be activated using the onscreen “Buttons”, the “space bar” or a Remote control.
This interruption can both be on a running race (Track call), but can also be used to extend a timed intermission between stints.

*  The screen layout is optimized to be readable from a distance of several meters, and supports resizing.

*  Supports optional use of dual-monitors.

*  Celebrate victory by printing result lists, Statistics, diplomas and/or publishing the result on the internet. 

*  Optional combined ScoreBoard with additional information for the entire race, not just the current heat.

*  Ability to publish real-time status directly to internet (LiveTiming).

*  Ability to store results and statistics directly to internet or print.

*  The ability to WEB-Connect multiple LapMaster systems via TCP/IP (Local LAN or Internet) to form gigantic slot racing events, and display all information on a combined scoreboard.

*  Point’s system makes it possible to directly race against other tracks in real time, despite the differences in tracks and car performances.

*  Track time seller mode for commercial race tracks.
