Mclaren-casy-study-Video-VBOX-WaterproofVideo Logging for all

Every McLaren GT Sprint track car now has a Racelogic Video VBOX data logging system fitted as standard

Last year McLaren GT launched the 12C GT Sprint, a track-only version of the 12C, to satisfy the needs of a proportion of their enthusiastic clientele who frequent track days.

What kind of customer buys a 12C GT Sprint? It is likely to be someone who already owns a standard road-going car but doesn't want to use it on the track. And increasingly, it will be somebody who, whilst they don't necessarily want to go down the path of a full-blown GT3, will be pretty serious about their circuit performance.


New Video VBOX Software and Firmware released

on .

New versions of both firmware and software are now available for the Video VBOX range (Lite, Waterproof, and Pro). You can download the firmware here / software here.

New features include:

Digital Event Marking: by configuring the scene for Event Marking, a start/stop logging switch can now be used to insert an event marker. This is especially useful for those instructing on track, giving coaches the ability to instantly refer to moments during the session that need examination and analysis.

Multiple Needle Rotations: ideal for elements such as a steering wheel graphic that need to rotate fully more than once. By setting the number of rotations you can now replicate how the wheel actually performs.

Apple updates iOS 7

on .

The last versions of apple software to be released (7.1 and 7.1.1) contained Bluetooth issues which stopped data transfer between our Performance Test and LapTimer iOS applications and the VBOX Sport. This caused some issues for our customers – our newly released apps contain a workaround which solves these issues.

Apple has also released a new software version which removes this Bluetooth issue. Users can continue running 7.1.1 or update to the new 7.1.2, both should now function without any issues.
