VBOX Pit Lane Timer

The VBOX Pit Lane Timer takes the guesswork out of the crucial pit stop period of an endurance race.

  • Avoid pit stop penalties
  • Get prompts when to leave the pit box
  • Get warnings before crossing the line too early
  • Log your data to SD card
  • Low power consumption: 1.5 W



10 Hz Data Logging

VBOX Pit Lane Timer logs stint and pit lane times to SD card at 10 times per second.

Avoid pit stop penalties

You will be prompted when to leave the pit box, and warned if you are likely to cross the line too early.

Delta-V LED Indicators

Two high brightness color LEDs give you real-time guidance on speed, and time in the pit lane, showing you when to speed up, slow down or leave the pit box.

Display Options

VBOX Pit Lane Timer display has the option to show font as a high contrast outline or inverse screen colors for use in different light conditions.


Secondary display for the pit crew

You have the option to add a secondary display to the VBOX Pit Lane Timer (not Mini Pit Lane Timer), which mirrors the stationary countdown time and makes this information easily available to the pit crew and driver.

The OLED Pit Display (RLVBPITDSP) will keep the team informed of how much time they have left in the pit lane and exactly when to release the car with minimal time loss.

VBOX Pit Lane Timer requires firmware version 1.1.22 or later to use an OLED Pit Display, and a standard OLED display cannot be used instead of an OLED Pit Display.

Powerful Analysis Software

Circuit Tools is designed by racing drivers for racing drivers, with none of the complexity normally associated with data analysis software. The software is compatible with Windows, macOS and iOS devices, will automate many tasks and give you all the information required to improve lap times.

How does it work

Watch our pit lane timer demo video.

VBOX Pit Lane Timer has different display modes depending on 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.

Pit Lane Timer recognizing 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.

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.

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


Leave the pit box now.

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


You are 1.1 s under the minimum 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.


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).
