The technology of today is very extensive and constantly evolving. In recent years, it is not uncommon to use this technology in different sports and racing events. This report describes the process of developing a visualization system that enhances the experience for the spectators present at the event. This system is designed and customized especially for motorsport events. The GPS-based system is developed to follow the participants’ progression on the track. It is designed to give the user the maximum experience when attending alongside the racetrack, and to overcome complications related to limitations in viewing. One of the foremost complications in viewing the racetrack and most importantly the vehicles today is that the racetrack often is obscured by hills, buildings, trees and other items. This report describes the choice of hardware and the development of software which forms a system that helps the spectators to digitally follow the participants position on the racetrack in real time. The work has resulted in a system where the one can take part of the Graphical User Interface by a monitor that receives information from the database. The database receives its information from cellular phone with GPS-transmitters located in the vehicles of the participants. Software, hardware and systems were developed based on the requirement specifications and demands from spectators and participants at the STCC in Falkenberg the ninth of July 2017. The system was developed in close cooperation with the company Cetrez Group AB, which is engaged in the production of similar products.
