The unique capabilities of Autosport Labs Race Capture Pro allow users to log their racing time on track:

  • Downloads and stores race car actions in real time, with 10Hz GPS and up to 100Hz on all other sensors.
  • On-board precision digital accelerometer and yaw sensors detail the traction available for the race car.
