I discovered the value of predictive lap timing last Thursday during a test day. Watching the lap times click off was great but when I switched the AIM screen to PLT I managed to find missing time in the corners where I needed it the most. Great tool for driver development.

Watching the Japanese GP last night I saw the Marussia drivers taking later apexes than the leaders as they came through. The misconceptions exist at every level of motorsport.
Korea turn 3, big time and easier to find on youtube. Hamilton was "doing something special" in the >90* corners that Vettel and many other's weren't at the 2012 USGP.

We've used a TraqMate for about five years now. Its predictive lap is very powerfull, but I most like running multiple cars on the screen around the track and see the ebb and flow of different driving styles.

Me and a teammate had almost identical times at Rockingham, NC. Looking at the data, he had a better line coming off the back straight to the infield. I had a better line through the fishhook. Bottom line, we both went faster!
