IMSA announces Al Kamel Systems as new timing partner


The International Motorsport Association (IMSA) has confirmed a new partnership with Barcelona-based IT company Al Kamel Systems that will provide extensive timing and scoring for the 2016 WeatherTech Sportscar Championship.

Live timing and full results will be produced by Al Kamel’s timekeeping data, and will be displayed on the IMSA official website with session information also available.

Al Kamel is already endorsed by a number of high profile motorsport series, including the FIA World Endurance Championship, Formula E Championship, European Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Al Kamel system will be applied gradually over the course of the 2016 IMSA season, ready for its full-time application in 2017.

“Al Kamel Systems’ proven track record of excellence in international road racing was attractive to IMSA as we looked to improve the functionality and expansion capability of our Timing & Scoring systems,” said IMSA vice president Simon Hodgson. “This new technology will pay dividends in many different applications, and will improve the overall quality of how our data is packaged and distributed.”

“We are delighted to announce this partnership with IMSA, one of the most important sports car championships of the international motorsport scene,” said José Luís García, GM and founder of Al Kamel Systems. “It is fantastic to see Al Kamel Systems operating in the United States with such an established partner, and we are so proud to provide our know how in Timing & Scoring as a contribution for the IMSA brand and product.”
