“I simply have no clue where to start with racing car data analysis!”
You know that buried in your pile of racecar data are extraordinary insights. Astonishing knowledge that you could apply to increase your chances of winning races. Instead, far from giving yourself an “unfair advantage” you feel baffled. Staring confused at complex lines on a screen.
“I’m pretty comfortable with my knowledge and abilities on track but I think data can reveal my weaknesses.”
Your racecar data should be helping you to put together the puzzle of fast racecar driving. Like determining the best racing line, braking points or which gear to be in. Despite promises to help you “drive as fast as the pros”, data has so far not delivered.
Racecar driving is a hands-on sport, so how much value can data offer anyway? Is it even worth your time and effort to understand what the data is telling you?
Why should you even bother?
Data promises to be a solution. You know that every pro driver and team that’s consistently winning races use data. And so, if the pros are using it there must be something in it, right?
You KNOW that but you just don’t think YOU can do it.
On top of this, data systems can be expensive and complicated. They seem to have been designed by people who delight in hiding what you want to see, only to confuse you when you do find it.
With little idea of what “good” looks like, you jump back and forth from data scarcity to data overload.
Your sophisticated data system, with all its promise, all its hidden secrets, relegated to just being an expensive lap timer.
You bought a system thinking it would be easy and intuitive…wrong! Now it turns out that you need to have an engineering degree otherwise it’s just a confusing mess of squiggly lines.
“Come to our (paid) seminars if you like, but otherwise best of luck,” the manufacturers say … but you now know you are on your own …
“My biggest challenge is to find a way to apply all the stuff that I’m studying.” … could this be you??
The Promise Of Certainty
You know deep down that using a data system can help you to pinpoint critical improvements in your racecar driving. After all, why else would every single professional motorsports team on the planet be using data systems? – clearly, it is for good reason.
“I am convinced that I’m not always making full use of the brakes.”
Forget wishy-washy, hand-wavey folklore. You want precision, certainty and clarity so you can simply make the most out of every single precious second you get to spend out on the race track.
You know you could probably hire an expensive specialist to do this for you. For some, it is the perfect option but is that really the best use of your limited racing budget? Who can you trust and how will you actually know if they know their stuff?
For anyone fluent in interpreting racecar data, you know they will rapidly be going from finding seconds of lap time to honing in on the last tenths … you just don’t think YOU can do it.
“I’m thinking that the data will be less useful to me since I am a rather sh**ty driver.”
Driving Faster & Finding Lap Time
But what if you could?
What if you knew precisely how to develop your racecar driving so you were always improving? Always more competitive?
Imagine if every time you hit the track you were armed with a concrete plan of action. One where you knew precisely where you should be aiming to place the car, when to turn-in and where (and how!) to brake for each and every corner.
What if you knew, for certain, what the potential of your racing car was and how you could maximise it, every time out?
How good would it feel to know that your lap times are fully representative of the true pace of your racecar? Every tenth of a second extracted from the car.
Imagine knowing specifically how you could maximise your racecar’s speed, all around the lap, every time you hit the track – and all within a week.
Yes, racecar data analysis can result in immense frustration … but it doesn’t have to.

Part 1: Understanding Data Acquisition
Do you really need to bother with any of this? (Seriously! – this is a no BS class 😊)
What are different types data and what is relevant to you? What is a data logger and how do they work? People talk about GPS data all the time but how does it work and what do you need to know about it?

In this lesson from Part 1 you learn about Data Types:
Part 2: Data Evaluation and Analysis
You have data but now what? Where should you start?
What you can understand from lap times? What is the speed trace and how can you learn from it? Where were you gaining or loosing time around the lap and by how much? Could you have braked better for the corner? Got on the power better? Not lost so much time on your up changes?

You get the enjoyment of putting everything you learn into practise. This course will give you the tools to discover for yourself where and how you can use GPS data to improve. It will help you focus and form a prioritised plan. You will have the skills to know, for certain, what you need do to race faster.
Yes I can help you understand everything covered in the course. If you want personalised advice on interpreting your actual data then there are options for that. 😊
The course is self paced. You can take each part at your own pace. I would expect you to be able to complete the lessons within a week. You should be able to apply the knowledge immediately. This is only the start of your journey – the best never stop learning.
You should buy the one best suited to your budget. I do give you some guidance within the GPS introduction lesson on what to look out for with these systems. The popular systems are AIM, VBOX and APEX Pro (remember to pick up your discount code if you go for the APEX)
