Smart Phones Become Tactical Resources For Performance Kart Racers

With the age of the smart phone reaching into the consumer conscious at a rate of 36 million Android units and 35 million iPhones annually, chances are fairly good that karting competitors are packing one of these in their race suit pocket. As is common with these two phones, downloading applications that personalize the userís experience, motorsports has gained traction with some important tools that can be applied to karting.

Cantrell imageCantrell Motorsports Lap Timer for the iPhone Ė This lap timer is best used with the second and third generation iPhones or in conjunction with an external GPS antenna. The phone needs to be mounted with a bracket/holder. The system requires that the driver make one full lap once the satellite connection is confirmed to establish the start/finish line. This can be purchased through the iTunes store.

Trackmaster Ė Trackaroo has a number of Android motorsports applications. The Trackmaster system records the following track data: position, speed, acceleration, altitude, bearing, absolute time, split times, elapsed times, and lap times. You can record your track data using multiple trigger modes: immediate, by movement, delayed, or by first split marker. You can even view your lap times and split times with graphical analysis on your phone. According to tests, Trackmaster is within .05 seconds in accuracy against AMB transponder times. The cost for this Android application is $7.99 and is available through the Android Marketplace.
