RaceDay Timer Newsletter: February

Race Timers’ Monthly Update

We are pleased to shine the spotlight on Steve Turrisi, co-founder of Race Day Professionals. Steve is a RaceDay Certified Timer who truly embraces new technology. Recently, Steve took the initiative to offer RaceJoy for one of his important Florida races. The event organizers weren’t that familiar with RaceJoy and initially not that engaged about the product. That quickly changed on race day when they realized the value of RaceJoy. Steve shared his experiences with us and we thought other RaceDay Certified Timers would benefit from his experience.

RaceJoy Virtual Certification March 31

Tuesday, March 31

 3pm to 5PM (ET)

A one-time virtual RaceJoy Certification training is now available for those timers who are not able to attend the Summer Symposium training or have a race prior to then. Space is very limited and the cost is $500. The training is from 2pm to 5pm and will require your full attention and engagement. 

Note: Only one person per timing company needs to be Certified in order to offer RaceJoy. That person can then be responsible for training those in the company who will be performing the map building for RaceJoy. Of course, you always have the option to have multiple people receive the formal training.
