LapTimingOnDASH4PRO2 / LapAndSectorTimeStatistics

Lap and Sector time statistics

Lap timing operation will start automatically when you pass a track marker for the first time with the Data Logger on, with GPS lock and logging data.

If the DASH4PRO is used with a DL1 MK3 or with a VIDEO4 it is possible to get a live indication all the way around the track of how much faster the current lap is than a lap made up of all the fastest sectors, this can be done with two variables:

  • Time slip rate: A live update how much faster or slower the current speed is than at this point on the fastest sector.
  • Time slip value: A continuous update of how much faster or slower the lap is than a lap made up of fastest sectors.

After this, when you complete each sector Data Logger outputs a time and DASH4PRO updates the following: -

  • Best sector time
This is the best sector time that has been achieved for the sector that was last completed. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Best lap time
This is the best lap time that has been achieved. This is updated each time that lap is completed (as the lap marker is passed).
  • Predictive current lap time 1
This is an estimate of the final lap time, and is calculated using the actual times from the sectors that have already been completed and assuming that all the remaining sectors are completed in the same time that it took you during your best lap. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Predictive current lap time 2
This is an estimate of the final lap time, and is calculated using the actual times from the sectors that have already been completed and assuming that all the remaining sectors are completed in the best times achieved for each individual sector. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Number of the current lap
This is the lap number that you are currently on, this starts at 0 and is incremented by 1 every time the lap marker is passed.
  • Number of the current sector
This is reset to 1 when the lap marker is passes and is incremented by 1 every time a track marker is passed.
  • Best sector delta
This is the difference between the time that has just been achieved for the sector and the previous best time for that sector. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Best lap delta
The best lap delta is the difference between the current lap time, and the lap time from the best lap at the same point. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Last Lap time
Last lap time is simply the time for the last lap to be completed. This is updated each time that lap is completed (as the lap marker is passed).
  • Last Sector time
Last sector time is the time taken to complete the last sector. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Current lap time
This is the time up to the last sector on the lap, also sometimes referred to as a “split time” for the lap. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Predictive lap time reference (Predictive lap time ref)
This is an estimate of the final lap time, and is calculated using the actual times from the sectors that have already been completed and assuming that all the remaining sectors are completed in the time that was entered into the configuration software as the sector reference time. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Reference sector delta (ref sector delta)
This is the difference between the time that has just been achieved for the sector and the previous best time for the time that was entered into the configuration software as the sector reference time. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
  • Reference lap delta (ref lap delta)
The best lap delta is the difference between the current lap time, and the times the that were entered into the configuration software for the sectors upto the same point. This is updated as each sector is completed (as each sector marker is passed).
