A look at the ACO's free LM24 App

Sunday, June 12, 2016

Launched just a couple of weeks ago by the ACO, this free to download and free to use '24 ON SITE' application has been designed to help spectators fulfil as much as a viewing experience at the 24H race as possible.

With the circuit, amenities and events spread over such a vast area sometimes, and particularly for new attendees, finding out where to go and when is sometimes just down to luck or by just following the madding crowd. This application helps with that predicament by listing all of the events both at the circuit and even in some of the surrounding villages with times and locations for shows like the great British Welcome at Saint Saturnin on the Friday.

Having a brief look through the others services offered by the app most sections can be considered as either being practically useful or t least make for good, informative reading whilst you are waiting in the lulls in-between events.

The map function is particularly useful, being able to zoom in so that you can find your position and work out your path to the next vantage point or circuit crossing tunnel/bridge.

The million dollar question is of course the quality of mobile signal your device can receive at a circuit that has 250,000 other users at it, so signal maybe an issue. Other than that, and simply because its cost free its well worth the download onto your Apple or Google device.
