We are thrilled to announce that the beloved ACC and iRacing live timing application, Pitwall.live, is now a part of the SimGrid family.
Pitwall.live has established itself as an indispensable tool for sim racers worldwide, offering real-time race tracking that enhances strategy for drivers, teams, and managers alike. Beyond race organisation and broadcasting, community owners have leveraged Pitwall.live to offer an immersive experience to viewers with live timing features that allow viewers to follow the action even closer.
Joining SimGrid marks a new chapter for Pitwall.live, adding to our wide suite of applications that cater to sim racers of all levels, from enthusiasts to professional esports competitors. The inclusion of Pitwall.live into product lineup reflects our commitment to broadening what we offer in the world of sim racing.
When Toon and Kris reached out to ask if we’d be interested in taking over the platform we jumped at the opportunity because we really believe we can bring a ton to the platform in combination with what we are building on SimGrid and Delta.
We have always had a strong relationship with Pitwall.live and its founders – Toon and Kris. Collaborating from the early days of SimGrid and Pitwall, we have always been in constant communication with them. Running a site like Pitwall requires a lot of dedication, both in terms of development and community management.
We are fully committed to using our experience in sim racing and tech, to ensure that Pitwall continues to grow.
What Does This Mean for Users?
Initially, the transition to SimGrid signifies minimal change for users, aside from the need to accept updated terms and conditions to facilitate data transfer, users can carry on using the platform as they have been. Rest assured, the service you know and love remains unchanged at its core.
What is Pitwall.live?
If you don’t know what Pitwall.live is or you have not heard of this application before it’s a must-have app to elevate your racing experience. A simple run down of Pitwall.live and its features are as follows:
Pitwall.live allows you to link your YouTube, Twitch or Facebook live streams directly to the app in real-time, meaning viewers can keep up with the action live whilst working through the live data provided in Pitwall.
Pitwall.live tracks every single car and driver on the grid. You can see the driver behind the wheel, the car they are driving, their lap times, their overall laps, their sector times and the live deltas between each driver.
Pitwall.live operates a live track map so you can track where each driver is on the circuit, the track map is broken down into sectors and it will show you if there is a green/yellow flag active in that sector. It also shows you live temperatures and if you click on a driver, it will show you their live speeds.
Stints & Pits
The stints and pits feature is one of the most valued application tools. This is particularly useful for endurance racing. It allows you to strategise as a team to make better calls for your team. You can see every team’s stint times, how many laps they are completing in a stint, how long a pitstop took and more.
There Is More
Pitwall.live has a whole host of other features to its name including things such as gap charts, sector time history, speed rankings and more.
The best part is that Pitwall.live has a totally configurable interface meaning you can create as many different layout options as you wish. You can move, resize, remove and add widgets to your UI, making it as complex or as simple as you like and all of your layouts get saved for the next time you use Pitwall.Live.
Our vision for Pitwall.live is ambitious. By integrating it with SimGrid and Coach Dave Delta, we aim to explore some really cool features that will enhance your experience with the app.
This acquisition ensures that Pitwall.live not only continues to serve its community but also evolves to meet future demands.
We share your excitement for this new journey and invite you to stay connected for further updates. Together, we look forward to making Pitwall.live an even more integral part of your sim racing adventures.
