VBOX products are frequently used by our customers to validate acceleration times, top speeds and fastest lap times. Over the years, our products have been chosen by automotive manufactures, race teams and individuals to authenticate results from various record attempts, most commonly top speeds (Vmax) and lap records… you’ve probably heard of the Nürburgring, right?
The VBOX is one of the most accurate ways to validate these sorts of results, and it’s all done via GPS. Time is calculated via the atomic clocks located inside GPS satellites, and the doppler shift effect of the GPS carrier frequency is monitored for an incredibly accurate measurement of speed
Here’s the latest record achievement, authenticated by VBOX…
April 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Road America Lap Record - 2:15.17
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS has set a new production car lap record at Road America, completing the 4.048 mile road course with its 14 turns and multiple elevation changes in just 2:15,17 minutes. 24 Hours of Daytona and Le Mans class winner David Donohue took to the wheel of the 911 GT2 RS and only needed two laps to do so, underscoring not just the track capability, but also the approachability of the car. All captured and validated using VBOX products and viewed here in the intuitive Circuit Tools software.
