This article outlines the process of building an entry list for a class in Race Management.
Begin by selecting the desired class from the dropdown menu at the top of the screen.
There are 5 primary ways to select drivers for the entry list:
- Searching by Driver Name - Click the Search field in the top-left. Enter at least two characters of a driver name and select the driver from the list of suggestions. This is also where you can create a new driver profile, if necessary.
- Filtering by Driver Name - The list on the left hand side of the screen will show you a list of drivers who have competed with your organization previously. Click the Filter field and begin typing part or all of a driver name or car number. The currently displayed list of drivers will filter down to only display those matching the entered criteria.
- Selecting from the previous drivers List - The list on the left hand side of the screen will show you a list of drivers who have competed with your organization previously. In the top-left, click the dropdown menu beside My Competitors. Choose Pre Entries, By Track, By Series or Last Event. Click the desired driver to be added to the entry list. Use the driver filter along with each list option.
- Scanning an MRP Card - Click Scan Barcode and use your connected barcode scanner to read MRP Cards or barcode from the drivers MyRacePass App. The system will enter the driver by reading the barcode number from the card or app.
Note: Read more about the hardware used for barcode scanning here.
- Importing from a Previous Race - On the bottom-left, click the button Import from Previous Race to open a modal window from which a previous event can be selected. The system will import the list of drivers who entered the current class at the specified, earlier event. You will also have the option of copying the pill draw and transponder numbers.
(Optional) Check the box for Speed Entry to streamline the entry process. Speed entry will save keystrokes and mouse clicks by only prompting for user input when it can't be avoided such as when a driver is being added without a car number.
When not utilizing speed entry, the Confirm Entry modal window appears when a driver is added to the entry list. Use this screen to confirm and edit driver details such as car number, team and transponder number.
The Confirm Entry window is used to enter and verify the details of a driver being entered.
