Well, I have never even operated a scoring system, and I figured out RC Scoring Pro without even reading the instructions....

And tell me any company besides RC Scoring Pro, that has the software writer ANSWER his cell phone, to help you with any issues (once,was not even software related) and then rewrites the program to include a new feature! Doug has done it...

We use Autoscore at our track at the moment. We are going to have an AMB system that supports personals by the spring. But I have played with the latest version of Autoscore and RC Scoring Pro. By far, RC Scoring Pro is the better one. Easier to use, more functions, and tech support. Doug even gives you his cell phone number in the program so that if ou are really stuck, call him. If you need something that isn't in the program, let him know. He'll write it into the program and send it to you. The local onroad club, as Kerry has stated, has purchased it as well. It's better than what they used to run as well.

xxxkat. If I have to read the instructions to be able to use the program then it can't be very user friendly. Can it?
And I was talking about user friendly-ness not features or service.
EddieO could, but can any beginner sit down and operate the program. If you send me the newest version and I can use it without reading the instructions I'll withdraw my statement.

Go to www.rcscoringpro.com . Doug will send you a working Demo of the program. Put it on your computer and try it out. It's the easiest of the three programs that I use/have used. Hands down I think it's the best program on the market today.

RC Scoring Pro. Look at how many major events have used it:

The Novak Race
The Reedy Race
IIC- Vegas
Wisconsin Touring Car Series
The All-Star Carpet Series
And, while not 100% sure, but I believe Snowbirds used it, as has ROAR, and IFMAR. Also used at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for timing and scoring during the Indy Spectacular races in May and August.

I downloaded the BBK one and spent a few hours playing around with it. I didn't use it for any races, just trying to get it set up and enter in some drivers. To be perfectly honest with you, it has some nice thing like entering what car the guy is driving but actually trying to set that stuff up was a royal pain in the butt. I entered information in one section and it wouldn't come up in another section when it's looking for the same things.


No offence Terry but I'll stick with RC Scoring Pro.

If you take the time to learn to use bbkRC you will find it can do just about anything you want it to. It's not just a race scoring program but a championship points system and a sophisticated 'backroom' with driver membership details, web updates, personal bests, track records and more...

The concept is to enter driver details in the 'drivers and cars' database and when you set up a meeting it 'reads in' the details for that meeting from the main database. If the main database is updated those details can be 'called in' to the competitiors database or it can be left for that particular meeting.

I've tried various programs over the years but none can do everything that bbkRC can do. To do so much it does need to be more involved. I'd rather have a 'royal pain in the..' that can do everything I want, than a simpler program that can't. If you want 'simple' and 'basic' then there's a lot more programs to choose from, but only one that can do it all. It too has been used by many major events and there is also excellent customer support available.

It's your choice. I choose bbkRC.
