Introduction

Welcome to the Sim Racing Limited Venue Management System (VMS) API! You can use the API to access your customer's data for use in your internal business systems or for creating customer-facing applications, and to add data to your VMS database from your own systems.

Please ensure that you use proper parsing libraries to handle the API responses, as additional fields may be added to endpoint output in the future. We will aim never to remove fields from the output in a specific API version.

If you experience any issues, or feel that improvements could be made in either the API or the documentation, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Authentication

To authorize, use this code:

# With shell, you can just pass the correct header with each request
curl "https://api.simracing.co.uk/v0.1/api_endpoint_here" \
  -H "Authorization: SRL <your-API-key>"

Make sure to replace <your-API-key> with your API key.

Sim Racing Limited uses API keys to grant access to the API. For V3 customers, API keys may be generated via the API section of the Account Management pages.

We strongly encourage that each application you write that requires API access has a separate API key. This means that should an API key need to be revoked, only a single application will be affected. For the same reason, we also encourage that you reference the API key in a single location in your application.

Up to three API keys may be generated via the Account Management site. Please contact us if you require additional keys.

API keys may be revoked/regenerated at your request, or may be revoked if we detect that the key has been compromised. Wherever possible we will attempt to contact you before revoking a key.

The VMS API requires the API key to be included in all API requests to the server in a header that looks like the following:

Authorization: SRL <your-API-key>

Protocol Security

All requests made to the VMS API must be made via TLS (SSL) to the default HTTPS port, 443. This ensures the security and integrity of communications between Sim Racing Limited systems and your application.

Please ensure that the client or language you use to interact with the VMS API supports TLS 1.0 or higher. TLS 1.2 is recommended, as TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support may be deprecated in future API releases.

Compression

Gzip compression of returned data is optionally available for all endpoints. Gzip compression is recommended for applications that frequently transfer a lot of data (for example, a custom SWP replacement that may have to display several hundred laps at a time), or for applications that transfer data over unreliable network links such as a cellular network.

Gzip compression may be enabled by setting the following header in the request:

Accept-Encoding: gzip

If this header is set, your application will need to decompress the data before parsing it. Many libraries include inbuilt support for gzip decompression.

Rate Limiting

To prevent excessive load on the servers, and to provide good performance for all licensees, all API keys have associated rate limits for requests. Rate limits are reset at the start of every hour. Our default rate limit for API keys is 2,000 requests/hour.

Your current and historic usage may be viewed in the API section of the Account Management site, by clicking on the graph icon next to the relevant API key.

Please contact us if you find the default rate limits to be restrictive to your routine usage patterns.

Timezones

To authorize supplying your timezone, use this code:

# With shell, you can just pass the correct headers with each request
curl "https://api.simracing.co.uk/v0.1/api_endpoint_here" \
  -H "Authorization: SRL <your-API-key>" \
  -H "timezone-offset: <your-offset>" \

Make sure to replace <your-API-key> with your API key and <your-offset> with your offset from UTC, in hours.

API queries which check whether something is in the past or the future require knowledge of the timezone of your request in order to accurately determine this information. Currently this includes listing hotlapping events, and listing bookings. If you wish to use the 'past' and 'future' query parameters with these endpoints, we highly recommend providing your timezone, otherwise the current UTC time will be used to determine whether something is in the past or the future.

Your timezone should be provided in a header named timezone-offset, which takes a positive or negative value specifiying the offset from UTC to use. For example, if you are on the west coast of the US, and daylight savings time is not active, you should include a header that looks like the following:

timezone-offset: -8

You may include the timezone offset header in all API requests, to ensure that it is used when appropriate.

The timezone offset header does not alter the date or time fields of returned results. All date and time fields are considered to be in the local venue time, so are not translated.

If you do not wish to provide your timezone offset, it is highly recommended that you do not rely on 'past' or 'future' query parameters, and instead retrieve all data from a specific endpoint, and locally process the data to determine whether something is in the past or future.

Return and Error Codes

The VMS API uses the following return codes:

Return Code Meaning
200 OK -- Your request was successful.

The VMS API uses the following error codes:

Error Code Meaning
400 Bad Request -- Your request had invalid, missing or conflicting data. Usually, an error message will also be returned with more information.
401 Unauthorized -- Your API key is incorrect or invalid.
403 Forbidden -- The account licence does not permit access to the specified API endpoint. Contact Sim Racing Limited for upgrade options.
404 Not Found -- The API endpoint was incorrect.
405 Method Not Allowed -- Your request was not valid for the specified API endpoint.
429 Too Many Requests -- You have exceeded the API rate limit for your API key.
500 Internal Server Error -- We had a problem fulfilling the request. Try again later or contact support.
503 Service Unavailable -- We're temporarially offline for maintanance. Please try again later.

Retrieving Data

An HTTP GET request should be made to the appropriate endpoint, documented below, to retrieve information from the API. Ensure that you include your API key in all requests, as documented in the authentication instructions.

Bookings

Access to the booking endpoints requires the bookings feature to be enabled for your VMS account. If this feature is not enabled, you will receive a 403 error when attempting to access these endpoints.

Creating Data

An HTTP POST request should be made to the appropriate endpoint, documented below, to create a new record in the API. Ensure that you include your API key in all requests, as documented in the authentication instructions. A Content-Type header specifying the type is text/xml, and the character set is UTF-8, is recommended. Sending data in a character set other than UTF-8 is not supported.

Your request must include correctly-formatted XML describing the record you wish to create. Only one record may be created in the API per API request.

Only required fields need to be provided in the XML. Any optional fields that are not supplied in the XML will receive default or empty values, as appropriate.

Errors in XML formatting, missing required fields, or invalid data (such as a booking end date that is earlier than a booking start date) will result in a 400 error being returned. A message giving more details about the error will typically be included.

A successful request will return a 200 OK return code, and the record, including the assigned ID, will be returned in the body of the response.

Bookings

Access to the booking endpoints requires the bookings feature to be enabled for your VMS account. If this feature is not enabled, you will receive a 403 error when attempting to access these endpoints.

Notes

Updating Data

An HTTP PATCH request should be made to the appropriate endpoint, documented below, to update a record in the API. Ensure that you include your API key in all requests, as documented in the authentication instructions. A Content-Type header specifying the type is text/xml, and the character set is UTF-8, is recommended. Sending data in a character set other than UTF-8 is not supported.

Your request must include correctly-formatted XML to the appropriate endpoint for the record you wish to update, and providing the updated data. Only one record may be updated in the API per API request.

All fields are optional, and any fields that are not supplied in the XML will remain unchanged. To clear the value currently in a field, include an empty XML tag for the field.

Errors in XML formatting or invalid data (such as a booking end date that is earlier than a booking start date) will result in a 400 error being returned. A message giving more details about the error will typically be included.

A successful request will return a 200 OK return code, and the updated record will be returned in the body of the response.

Bookings

Access to the booking endpoints requires the bookings feature to be enabled for your VMS account. If this feature is not enabled, you will receive a 403 error when attempting to access these endpoints.
