Resultsman is the slightly misnamed website belonging to Roger Warren. I say misnamed as it doesn't actually contain results (see the disclaimer below). I am the Technical Support Person and van driver for a group of Speed Event Timekeepers collectively known as Malvern Motorsports Timing Services (MMTS). MMTS provides electronic timing for Hillclimbs, Sprints and Record attempts mainly in the Midlands area of the UK
Over the past 2 years the concept of Live Timing for Speed Events has been developed, starting in 2010 with events at Shelsley Walsh, Loton Park and Prescott plus events organised by the Jersey Motorcycles and Light Car Club ,In 2011 this was expanded to cover Northern Ireland, Scotland and Guernsey plus some of the rounds of the British Sprint Championship. An Android App, innovatively named ResultsmanTouch, was developed to access the Database. Sometime soon if I have time I will update it to be a little more user friendly and also to enhance it for use on a Tablet.
I have to thank a number of people for their cooperation, mainly the MMTS timekeepers,Ben and his team for the Jersey events, Jim Reid, for Doune and Barbon, and Roger King, for Guernsey and Alderney. Declan McAleer over in Northern Ireland has also been using the system and his events are available via his Website. Also a big thank you to the various organising Clubs for allowing me to experiment and in some cases use the their broadband.
2012 will see a move into the world of social media. For those of you who use Twitter I will be Tweeting any record breaking runs plus the Run off runs as they happen .If you are interested then you can follow 'TheResultsman' or click on the Twitter follow button on this page.
Blatant Plug. Timekeepers for speed events are becoming an endangered species. If you have an interest in Sprints and Hillclimbs, are vaguely computer literate and would like to get involved then why not try timekeeping. You don’t have to be a electrical genius or a mathematical wizard as the computer does most of the work. If you are interested introduce yourself to the timekeepers at an event or you can contact me via the contact page.
Disclaimer The Data in the Live Timing Database is purely the timing data from event.It is uploaded direct from the timing system. The official results, including Awards and final positions are issued by the Organising Club and are available via the organising club. Whilst every effort is taken to ensure the data on this site is accurate in the event of a discrepancy the times issued by the Organising club ( and the timekepers on the day) will be taken as the definitive time.
