As we're cruising through the 2020s, we celebrate and will continue to celebrate some of the famous tracks in motorsport history that are turning 100 one by one. The reason? Roaring 20s!
100 years ago after surviving the First World War, the world lived a decade in which music, sports and entertainment peaked. The "driving" force of this decade was undoubtedly the excitement lived in the automobile industry. Since the beginning of the century, cars that have swept people off the ground were now reaching serious speeds, and not only that, they were competing with each other. Entrepreneurs and automobile clubs, who wanted to respond to the crazy need for competition, built amazing speed venues such as Monza, Nürburgring and Le Mans (Yes, Le Mans actually is a country road but you get it).
As of the publication date of this blog post, this weekend we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Monza, and the Italian Grand Prix. We will witness a great race where Tifosi will paint the entire grandstand red and Ferrari drivers (if the pit crew allow it) will sweat to win.
I believe there could not have been a better time to include Monza in the application. Dear drivers, with the release of the 1.0.4 version, I present you the Monza track map. Apart from the Monza, Racetrack Notes has a couple of other important features and improvements. Finally, a zoom feature, which I can call the "beta" version, has been added to the application. I'm pretty happy about it because it was primarily a big need of me as a user.
In addition, I slightly improved the Settings screen. I added a button that directs users to write a review in the App Store. In addition, the application will remind you to write a review from time to time. Apple has strict guidelines about how frequent a developer can ask for a review, so don't worry about it.
What awaits us in the upcoming releases? I will continue with the track map updates. A new, accurate, highly detailed version of the Le Mans circuit map has just been completed. iRacing added Fuji Speedway last month so I will. While continuing to work on the Zoom feature, I started experimenting with the iPhone version. So this fall might come with some surprises 🍂
