The software is designed by racing drivers, for racing drivers, with none of the complexity normally associated with analysis software.

DB-sd-cardEasy to use

To analyse your track data, simply insert the SD card with your recorded data into your PC and select a file.

Huge track database

The software automatically detects the country, circuit and track configuration from a database of 400 circuits and uses the start/finish line information to separate the laps contained in your recorded file.

The fastest lap from your latest session is automatically chosen and displayed on the graph window. You can compare runs from this session, or from previous ones simply by clicking on the relevant lap time shown in the session window.

Delta-T-lbLap time difference channel

Time difference or 'Delta-T' is a very useful channel that shows the lap time difference between two different laps.
