GrandPrix Race Manager 2019 Released

Post by gpraceman » Tue Sep 03, 2019 11:34 am

We are kicking off the 2019-2020 racing season with new versions of our GrandPrix Race Manager, RaceFX, DerbyDMV, and DerbyWeb software.

GrandPrix Race Manager 2019 Highlights

New or Improved Features for All Users:
+ A button has been added to the Overview tab to go to the tutorial videos page on our website.
+ Improved search features to be more intuitive and flexible. Can do a simple or complex search. Includes a “find next” feature.
+ Added support for groups that have run a differing number of rounds to be included in the Grand Finals Round. Only applies when advancing based on an equal number from each group.
+ Added an option to disable the “Major Warning” sound effect.
+ (Windows Only) Added a custom PDF viewer to display reports, instead of depending on the user’s default PDF viewer. It’s easy to use and has an easy to find print functionality.
+ Fixed issue with the software not starting up for some macOS users.
+ Several other improvements and fixes were implemented.

New and Improved Features for Pro Version Users:
+ Added the ability to select a Light or Dark theme for the application. Dark theme can reduce eye strain.
+ If scoring by times, you can now move a racer to a different race group, after racing has started. This does not affect the schedules or results, just the rosters and standings.
+ Added auto scroll feature to the Rosters, Standings and Awards audience display screens.
+ Added the ability to flag an award to be voted on, if using DerbyWeb. Voting is done via DerbyWeb.
+ Added default options for Title 1 and Title 2, which are used on most reports. These are applied when creating new race data files.
+ Several other improvements and fixes were implemented.
