Tyres display configuration
To open the tyres display configuration, click on Event and then Tyres.
A new tab will appear:
There are two ways to create new tyres. Tyres could be created one by one or tyres could be created via bulk set creation.
A single tyre can only be added via the event tyre worksheet for each specific car. To do so, click on the Add Tyre button:
A window will then pop-up to ask for the specification of the new tyre. Only specifications available for the event will be displayed as options as explained in the Event Management articles.
Once created the new tyre will be displayed at the bottom of the list of tyres with an arbitrary name that can be edited:
Other parameters that can be modified are:
- Tyre Name
- Initial Mileage
- Initial Wear Measurement (by default this will be the default value from the tyre specification)
Both the tyre specification and # of wear measurement are linked to the tyre specification selected and can't be modified once a tyre has been created.
To save time during an event with a lot of tyres, tyres and sets can be created in bulk. For more information, please visit the Tyre Sets article.
The only option to delete tyre is to use the Delete Selected Tyres button from the event tyre worksheet:
Deleting tyres will remove them from the database and delete every single reference linked to them. To remove tyres from an event without removing them from the database, please refer to the Tyre inventory articles.
Global tyre name vs event tyre name
By default, when creating a new tyre in an event, the event tyre name will be copied to the global name in the tyre inventory. Looking at the example from above, tyres created in the event were added in the inventory with their event name:
However, it is useful to store a new name under a global name (tyre number for the year, barcode number,..) while keeping a different event name.
When changing the name of the tyre in the inventory, only the global name is changed but not the event name:
The tyre mileage for each individual tyre can be tracked on an event by event basis.
First of all, an initial mileage for a specific tyre can be entered in the Event Tyre worksheet:
This initial mileage should be in kilometre (km) or miles (mi) depending on your Global Options on your account.
Then a summary per set can be found in the Tyre Sets worksheet:
Set Laps represents the number of laps that the specific sets did in the event.
Tyre Laps represents the "calculated" number of laps that each tyre has accumulated.
Tyre Laps = Set Laps + (Initial Mileage / Event Track Length)
A summary of the number of laps as well as total mileage of each tyre can be found under the Mileage worksheet.
