How To: Drag and Top Speed Racing with Track Attack App

January 12, 2014

Track Attack is just for going around a track lap after lap? Think again.

With Track Attack, you can set up a straight line course for 1/4 mile, 1/8 mile, half mile or even air strip attacks.
Here’s how:

  1. Create your new track on the phone. You’re essentially creating a point-to-point track, similar to Auto-Cross, Rally Stages and Hill Climbs. Your new track will show up under User-Created section of the tracks when the app searches for nearby tracks.
  2. While pulled over, create a new “Drag Racing” session. Select your track and hit ‘Start’ when you’re ready. Recording has started and timing will reset after you cross the Start Line. This is great so you can focus on driving and works even better for rolling start races.
  3. Drive!
  4. Track Attack will stop a few seconds after you cross the finish line and flash the time for the race.

Here is a quick video on how to record a Drag Racing Session:

That’s it! You can immediately watch your race with data overlay. You can the upload the video and a few minutes later, you can share that session online for everyone to see.

You can upload when you connect to a reliable Wi-Fi connection.

Once the video has been uploaded, you can share from the phone or your profile on www.trackattackapp.com – this is the above test video on www.trackattackapp.com:

So, get out there and tear up the strip!
