The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC)’s App has been heavily revised ahead of the 2016 season, with a new design and features, better integration and new content.
WEC organisers state that fans of the championship can follow it in its entirety, no matter where in the world they are, and from 2016 they will profit from an all-new Home page with dedicated content which will match what’s happening on the timing screens; the chance to see replays of WEC action; new timing screens and displays and the opportunity to have Live Timing on rotation on iPhones; Chromecast integration; a new Exoplayer for Android devices.
Available for any device capable of running iPhone or Android applications, the FIA WEC second screen App can now be downloaded for free from the iTunes Store or the Google Store. This offers all news from the WEC, classifications, circuit information, team and driver information, highlights, basic live timing and much more.
A Premium Season Pack is available on a race-by-race or full season basis as an In-App purchase. This latter package gives fans access to all nine races in the 2016 season including the Le Mans 24 Hours, and all Premium Season purchases offer full live coverage of each race as well as full data timing, exclusive content, on-board cameras, full race replays available on demand up to 3 weeks after the race and the possibility to personalise and follow your favourite drivers and/or teams.
“Today the quality of the digital devices we use is vital, and we have therefore put a lot of focus on the quality of the App because, among other things, this device helps our fans to better understand our championship,” commented Gérard Neveu, CEO of the WEC. “We try to constantly innovate, and we are sure that fans will be very pleased with what they find on the new version of the App.”
