This system can send you an SMS/Text alert each time a racer you've subscribed to completes a lap as well as respond to commands with other information.
There are two ways to quickly subscribe to your racer - the first is to visit the Racer Search/Profile page and click the "Notifications" button. The other method and functionalities are detailed below.
To use the system, you text codes from your mobile device or send an email from your computer. Instead of texting to a phone number as you normally would, you text to our email address: - or use your computer to email our responder address if you would like to receive notifications on your computer. If emailing, be sure to send the codes in the BODY of the message, not the subject.The following codes are available:
sub <transponder nbr> - Example: sub
Using this code will subscribe you to a transponder for the duration of the event - this causes you to receive an automatic notification each time the racer completes a lap. The notification will contain current position, laptime, and various other info. The system will text you back a code to verify & activate your subscription. The code will be the letter 'S' and two digits - for example: s15
Texting the word 'unsub' to our email address will cause the system to either cancel your subscription in the case you only have one, if you have more than one, it will respond back with codes to unsubscribe from all or a particular racer. Unsubscription codes will be the letter 'U' followed by two digits - for example: u15
<racing nbr> - Example: 199
Texting the system a racing number causes it to respond back with details about the racer's latest lap. If the system finds more than one racer using the requested racing number, it will respond back asking you which racer you would like and provide codes for each racer. The code will be prefixed with the letter "L". Example L12
<transponder nbr> - Example: 4523427
Texting the system a transponder number causes it to respond back with details about the most recent lap completed with that transponder.
<racing nbr> R - Example: 199 R
Texting the system a racer number followed by the letter "R", or the word "results" will cause the system to find the most recent results for that racer and text them back to your mobile device. If duplicate racing numbers are found, the system will respond back with codes and racer names. The code will be prefixed by the letter "r" - Example r19
<transponder nbr> R - Example: 4523427 R
Texting the system a transponder number followed by the letter "R", or the word "results" will cause the system to find the most recent results for that transponder and text them back to your mobile device.
