Run plan

The run plan view can be accessed from the event tab of the ribbon bar:

To open the run plan of a session, click on the + icon on the left-hand side of the session name:

There are three levels to the run plan:

  • run plan
    • planned run
      • planned lap (only available of the run plan mode is lap)

Run plan mode

There are two modes available for the run plan: run or lap.

  • Run mode: a number of total laps must be defined for each run and all calculations will be based on the average lap time and fuel consumption defined in the event data view.
  • Lap mode: each lap can be customized using lap markers. The lap marker allows setting a different lap time, fuel consumption, and mileage multiplier for each lap (Out, In, Push, ...etc.).

The run plan mode can be defined in the global options, in the event details, or the session details.

When a new event/car association is created, the run plan mode for the event data is set based on the setting in the global options. By default, the session data run plan mode will be inherit, which means that the value is taken from the event data. The run plan calculation always takes the value from the session data, and then if this is set to inherit, the event value will be used.

When a session is live (i.e. the current session takes place at the current time), depending on the mode either the current run or lap is highlighted in red. "Current" is considered as the run/lap where the start time is before and the end time is after the current time.

Add a run plan

To add a run plan, select a session, and click on Add Plan. A new run plan will appear:

Edit the name of the run plan:

A previous run plan can be chosen so that the tyre mileage can be correctly calculated.

Several run plans can be associated with a single session. You can switch from one to another by selecting the run plan in the Combobox:

Add a run in a run plan

After having created a run plan, you need to add runs. To do so, click on Add Run. It will create a new run in the run plan. If runs are already in the run plan, it will add it at the end.

Then enter the following information:

  • #Laps: number of total laps for the run (including in and out lap)
  • Driver: select among the list
  • Tyre Set: select among the list
  • Brake Set: select among the list
  • Description
  • Pit Time: the total time between the end of the previous run (or the start of session) and the start of the current run
  • Full Tank: select the checkbox if the tank if fulfilled

All the other cells will populate automatically based on the information provided.

Alternatively, it is possible to add in the run plan:

  • a time break: this can be useful for a planned break during the session or a red flag for example.
  • a time filler: in that case, the session time is not stopped (example: lunch break,...) and the car is not running.

To add a run between two existing runs, click on Insert Run or Insert Time Filler or Insert Time Break.

To delete a run, select the run and click on Delete Run.

Add laps in a run (lap mode only)

When in lap mode each planned run can be expanded to show the laps for the run.

To print the selected run plans of an event/car, click on Print Run Plan. A window will popup. Select the session(s) to print and click OK.

To export to pdf, click on Export Plan To PDF. A window will popup. Select the session(s) to print and click OK.


There are many calculations being performed in the run plan. The two most important input parameters are the assumed lap time and the fuel consumption per lap. Those two parameters can be defined in the Event settings or Session settings. Afterwards they can be adjusted depending on the Run Plan mode (see Customise calculations for an explanation of LapTimeMultiplier and FuelConsMultiplier).

  • Run mode:
Lap Time = LapTimeFromEventOrSession * LapTimeMultiplier  
Fuel Cons = FuelConsFromEventOrSession * FuelConsMultiplier
  • Lap mode:
Lap Time = LapTimeFromEventOrSession * LapMarkerLapTimeRatio * LapTimeMultiplier  
Fuel Cons = FuelConsFromEventOrSession * LapMarkerFuelConsRatio * FuelConsMultiplier

Customise calculations

HH Data Management allows to customise the run plan calculations in a very flexible way. There are two approaches that can get combined.

  1. Lap Markers

This can be defined for a track configuration, event or session and the parameters that are taken into account are "Lap Time Ratio" and "Fuel Cons Ratio".

  1. Math Parameters

In the PlannedRun and PlannedLap definition there are two math parameters that can be used to customise the run plan calculations. The parameter LapTimeMultiplier will be multiplied with the lap time and the parameter FuelConsMultiplier will be multiplied with the fuel consumption.

Tyre set

The ribbon bar provides the possibility to create mixed tyre set. To do so, select a planned run with a tyre set, click on Create Mixed Set, enter a name and select a tyre from the list for each corner.
