    Right now, the "waiting for a race to start" and "currently racing" are the same icon, an analog gauge with the needle on the right and the green 3/4 circle.

    We should have a different icon for "currently racing". My idea is that it the 3/4 circle should be orange/yellow and the needle should be in the middle.

    Thoughts?

    Green = Racing in progress
    Red = Racing completed

    Time until start/end shows in the information balloon...

    I would do it the other way around - green for 'currently racing' and amber for 'waiting to start'. But this would be a nice bit of information to see at a glance...

    Which is what the icons are for, but I think we should have 3 separate icons for 3 different conditions, 1 for race about to start, 1 for race in progress, and 1 for race complete.

    Agreed.

    Amber for wait.
    Green for go.
    Red for stopped.

    It's small, but handy.
    You can't see based on the icons when the race started.
    A yellow 'waiting to race' icon will turn green the moment you start racing and then you can go check how well you're doing on the track itself.
