2014 Timing Season Underway
|Fremont, MI - February 24, 2014 - This is the time of year when I really start to see a pickup in activity related to Race Director. At this point, there are close to 200 timers using Race Director 2014 with hundreds of races scored with the new release. Keep your ideas for improvements coming my way. I'm developing quite a list for 2015.|
New Chip Timing Partner
I'm pleased to announce that Race Director now integrates with the race result chip timing equipment. At this point, we have imports of timing data from this system working under both the standard chip results import and the lap results import. Next, we'll be working on creating a Direct Connect option for this system. For more information about this system, visit www.raceresult.com, or contact their US sales representative Mark Bockmann - email@example.com.
2014 User Conference
It's not too late to register for the the March 19 user conference in Chicago. I've had over 40 timers express interest in the conference - at this time there are 25 officially registered. The conference will be held at the Chicago O'Hare Hilton Doubletree and will include a thorough run-through of Race Director 2014 - concentrating on all of the new features. We'll also see in-depth demonstrations of the Race Director integration with CT Live, Run Sign Up and Xact. Use the Race Director "Buy Now" button to secure a spot at this conference.

2013 Holiday Message
Fremont, MI - December 24, 2013 - Happy Holidays to all my Race Director friends. What a wonderful year 2013 has been. A little scary retiring from a "secure" job I liked a lot to concentrate fully on the "fun" job that I really, really love. What it comes down to though, is not the work, but the people. I've got such a wonderfully loyal, friendly, easy to work with customer base. I really appreciate all of you.
I'm really happy about the improvements that we've been able to deliver for next year's release. There are over 50 customers using RD 2014 now and all seem to be producing excellent results.
Rejoice in the spirit of Christmas which is Peace,
the miracle of Christmas which is Hope,
and the heart of Christmas which is Love
