How does it work

VBOX Pit Lane Timer has different display modes depending where you are at the track.

Stint Time

When you are out on the track, the Pit Lane Timer will show your time from pit stop to pit stop.

Live Speed

When you enter the pit lane, the Pit Lane Timer will show your live speed value.

Countdown Time

When you come to a stop in your pit box, the Pit Lane Timer then displays a countdown to when you should leave your pit box.

VBOX Pit Lane Timer recognising the pre-set pit lane entry point as it is crossed, displays the velocity until the car comes to a stop and then counts down to zero to indicate when it is time to get out again.

In addition, the high brightness color LEDs change color and intensity, giving the driver an indication as to whether the pitlane exit will be reached too early, too late, or exactly right.

GO!

Leave the pit box now.

When it is time to leave the pit box, the LEDs light up GREEN for go.

SLOW DOWN!

You are 1.1 s under the minimum time.

As you drive towards the pit exit, the display will show the predicted amount you will be over or under the regulated minimum pit stop time.

If you are going to go under the minimum time, the LEDs will light up RED and the Pit Lane Timer will sound a continuous beep to let you know you need to slow down. The time displayed (-1.1s) is how much you will be under the minimum time if you carry on at this speed.

SPEED UP!

You are 1.7 s over the minimum time.

If you are more than 1.5 s over the minimum time, the LEDs will light up GREEN to say it is safe to go faster (if still within pit lane speed limit).

VBOX Pit Lane Timer logs stint and pit lane times to SD card.
