Default Laps Free

I have a couple of questions for those who are using Laps Free

I am a race director in a club in Malta we had slyfox the old version and are now using Laps Free with AMB RC - this program is well written and works superb - what i'm finding difficult is that our fellow drivers love to warm up their tyres that is a parade lap but at the same time not all manage to - this is resulting in a problem

ie who did the parade lap at the race start when the car passes on the amb wire it registers as his first lap - whilst who didnt just registers (thats the way it should be who passes the first time it registers than the subsequent passes are the laps done)

Any help would be appreciated.

Default the issue

If the issue is that some racers aren't crossing the counting loop before the start of the race, just make it mandatory that they cross. Simple solution. At our club, all racers have to cross to check in for the heat. Simple solution.

In terms of the software, you are using free software. If it works well, that's great, but I certaintly hope you don't expect your issues to be corrected in free software? Free software doesn't pay the bills and is usually done in spare time.

Good luck.

Default the loop

why not move the loop? or make a cut thru so the cars that take the parade lap don't cross the loop Laps free is good software,it works great. Don't expect to much help here i have tried in the past,most love to hate on laps free.

I'm playing around with Laps Free and find it to be a great program. Can anybody tell me how to delete past events? I have the manual, but can't find it in there or by just playing around with the program. Thanks!
