Laptimer for Coaches & Parents for Karting

Post by Arminelli » Thu Jan 11, 2018 9:43 am

Hi
has anyone an idea, if there is a solution available which allows to view laptimes of at least 1 kart driver from the racetracks grandstand?
As far as I understood works racesplitter.com like this but you have to press the button per each new lap and per each driver.
The Racelogic VBOX Sport is doing this automatically but is using a blutooth connection.
This will probably not have the coverage of the whole race track ?

MYCHRON or Alfano Laptimer are typically in use for kart races.
MYCHRON5 has WIFI included but this is also not permannentlyworking on a racetrack.

Has anyone of you such experice and can recommend any reliable setup?

Many thanks
Arminelli

Actually, this can be done with what LapTimer's online functionality is making available:
  • The kart driver needs to use LapTimer Rookie (or higher edition). The phone used needs to have a mobile connection.
  • The track needs to be a certified track set. In case you are driving a custom track, provide it using Certify Track.
  • To monitor lap times, get the watcher another smartphone running LapTimer Petrolhead (or GrandPrix) and use either Online View or Add-ons/your track to see the Hall of Fame in real time.

I have seen you are showing an apple watch on your home page. Can I forward Petrolhead data to the Apple watch as well?

thanks
