RaceTec Toolkit

Toolkit is the first native Android and iOS app designed to be a tool specifically for race timers, race directors and race officials, providing useful functions to make your day easier, and valuable information at your fingertips live from the race.
It links seamlessly and securely to RaceTec via the internet and continues to work even when your device (phone or tablet) is offline.
It is a free download from the Android Playstore and Apple Appstore, however to fully appreciate what it can do you need to sync it with RaceTec.
Configuring of the various functions and screens is done from with RaceTec using the dedicated 'Toolkit Module'.
Details of each function are described below. Click the images for a higher resolution view.
