Countdown timer for Formula 1 Races. Completely customisable. All race dates and times are stored in an customisable XML file. It will countdown to all sessions by itself. There is no need to refresh the page – the counter will automatically update.
The counter is currently set up to countdown to every Formula One session at each Grand Prix. It will count to both Friday Practice sessions, Saturday Practice, Qualifying and the Race. When each session is in progress, the counter will show ‘Event In Progress’ and this will automatically start counting down to the next session once the current one is finished.
After the Race, the following Grand Prix’s Friday Practice session will start counting down.
The counter can be used to countdown to any event or time you wish. You just need to make a few adjustments to the code.
This counter is updated to v2.5 with better XML calendar file and customizing direct from XML calendar file feature. Now you can edit size, position, font, font size, font color etc. direct from XML file without need to open Flash file.
Added message “SEASON OVER ” when counter reaches end of the last event in XML file.
Current race track images, including USA Grand Prix track layout at Austin, were added on the left side of counter. Images are country flags with race track layouts for cool effect.
