GNCC Features Live Laps Texting
Off-Road's Only Real-Time Updates
Morgantown, W.Va.- GNCC Racing is proud to announce Live Laps Texting Service, off-road's only live text alert for a mobile device.
By texting to email@example.com, fans can choose from three different codes to receive lap-by-lap real-time updates from their favorite GNCC events.
The first code allows fans to subscribe to a racer for the day, meaning they will receive alerts each time the racer completes a lap. This message will contain the rider's hometown, number, bike brand, class and class position, overall position, laptime, and elapsed time.
The second code allows fans to periodically check on a rider or several riders at once. This system will respond with information on a rider's position, laptime, and other race data.
The third code provides information on the overall top 20 or a particular class. Using specified class codes, fans are able to follow unofficial class results as they happen.
"We are excited to provide our GNCC fans with real-time updates on what's happening throughout the race. Since our courses range from ten to 12 miles, fans can know what position their riders are in no matter where the fan is," said Dan Reinhart, GNCC Systems Manger. "It's also a great opportunity for fans that aren't able to make the race to keep up with what's happening during the races."
