Live data from a race car running on the track is a highly valuable car tuning and driver training tool. Until now, getting this sort of data access and control has been out of reach for most racers. The creative folks at Autosport Labs have built a product called Race Capture that gives even LeMons racers like me the ability to have high level live telemetry running on our cars.
I can’t wait to get my hands on this magic box. Having the ability to have this device do things like flash warning lights on the dash when the oil temp gets too hot, or simply transmit temps, boost, rpm, and fuel level back to the pits will be incredibly helpful when running Pujo! at events. The fact that we can also set Race Capture up to record lap times, display track position using GPS, and even overlay data onto our in-car video is icing on the cake. That all of this costs less than a pair of tires is astounding.
Race Capture is being released through an Indiegogo campaign to crowdsource funding for production.
Make the jump for a video update with an interesting competition where folks can get one of the first Race Captures next week – before the Indiegogo campaign is closed.
