RaceJoy on the Big Screen

Tour de Donut applied a creative approach with RaceJoy’s participant tracking at its recent donut eating cycling event in Troy, Ohio. Their timing company, Good Times Event Services (GT Races), displayed RaceJoy’s live tracking screens of the four cycling courses from their timing vehicle (shown below). This drew attention from the spectators and cyclists and added a level of innovation and activity to the event.
