Spotlights VS (Visual Spotter) is a system developed from the ground up by iRacers, for iRacers. It was built with the goal of providing a non-invasive, yet always visible system to compliment existing in-sim spotter audio cues. Spotlights VS works with existing spotter packs so you don’t have to worry about having to trade off your favorite audio spotter if you don’t want.
Spotlights provide a visual system to indicate whether there are cars around you while racing. They work for both road an oval, and also indicate Green, Yellow, and Blue flags during the race. Flags are shown both during full course cautions and local yellows on road courses.
In addition to the flags and spotters, Spotlights now also incorporate a pit speed monitor and a fuel monitor system to prevent mid race mistakes from costing you down the road.
Adjustable: Spotlights VS can be adjusted to match the light in any space, and has multiple color choices to ensure the best visibility in all situations. Using Spotlights VS will also allow you to remove the spotter text from the screen to remove distraction and allow for a more immersive experience.
Dependable: It is our belief that Spotlights VS will provide a competitive advantage to any racers using them. By having an extra set of eyes on the track providing constant feedback to fill in the gaps left by audio spotters, drivers are able to make more confident decisions on the track.
Accessible: iRacing allows drivers of all abilities to enjoy sim racing. Spotlights VS can assist with drivers who may be hard of hearing to understand spotter calls without having to obstruct the screen with text cues.
Peripheral: The last thing anyone wants is to take their eyes off the action. Spotlights VS allows you to get the feedback you need clearly and discernibly without ever looking away from your screen. All of the indication appears away from the racing line but still within your view to ensure that all information is communicated when needed, but completely out of sight when not providing indication.
Timely: What good is a spotter if they are behind on the calls? After using Spotlights VS, I ask myself that every time I hear the audio spotter! Often times, the visual indication is provided before the audio cues play, and unlike the uninterruptible in-sim audio they are real-time and able to react instantly rather than relying on an audio file to finish playing.
**VR Note: In order to use the VR version of the Spotlights system, you will be adhering items inside your Headset.
