Dual Start Mode Races

A dual start race is an interval start race, except that multiple people start on each interval. This is simply a change to the start schedule to allow multiple people to have the same scheduled start time, everything else behaves the same way as any other interval start race.

  1. In the main race settings, turn “experimental settings” on
  2. Scroll down to find the “Allow multi-person interval start” checkbox and make sure it is checked.
  3. On the start list tab, under the Assign Start Times section, find the Number of Racers per Start field. Set this to however many people will be starting together. For a dual-start, this will be 2.

This feature was designed for dual-start, but there is nothing restricting it to 2 starters at a time, you can start any number of people together.

Note that this is not the same as a wave start race, as in a wave start one start time is recorded and assigned to all the people in the wave. In a dual start, each racer is still racing as an individual, they simply have the same scheduled start time.
