iBeacon Technology to Track Nearby Drivers at Official Pikes Peak Hill Climb

The 99th anniversary of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) will have a mobile app for the event for the first time. The app will provide heaps of customizable information before, during and after the race. Designed for any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that runs at least iOS 8.2, and complemented by a dedicated Apple Watch version, the PPHIC app has a lot to offer to the race fan.

Real time race results classified in vehicle divisions, racer profiles and a detailed spectator guide will keep fans well informed, regardless whether they are attending the race or just following it from the other side of the world. On site interviews and videos from vehicles equipped with an on board camera will be posted in-app as soon as they become available.

Especially for those who will be attending the race, the iBeacon-compatible app has some more features on offer. During the Fan Fest, to be held in the evening of Friday, June 26 at downtown Colorado Springs, and the race day on Sunday, June 28, your iOS device will identify every vehicle bearing iBeacon technology that is near you, even if you are not connected to the internet at the time.

If you have specific competitors you want to keep a closer eye on, the customizable Favorites section will cater to you with push notifications relating to your racers of choice.

The PPIHC app is already available in Apple’s App Store, costing €4.99 (US$5.5) in Europe. Unfortunately, It is not available for any other operating system.
