P1TS SRO Fact Sheet    September 10, 2020 http://p1ts.com/docs/factsheet-sro.html

P1TS is a web service that helps SRO Motorsports competitors understand their live race, practice, and qualifying sessions. Its clear interactive displays help engineers and strategists make critical real-time decisions.

This Fact Sheet briefly illustrates how P1TS can be used to assist engineers and strategists to solve many of the strategy problems they face by understanding data such as: lap times, gap times, driving times, pit times, and their deltas and trends. For a detailed description of P1TS, please refer to the following guides.

Requirements

There is no software for you to install or update since P1TS runs on Amazon Web Services. P1TS is easy to use and master, and race proven by championship-winning teams and manufacturers. It requires only:


Leaderboard

The Leaderboard table displays key data about each competitor.
  • Your Hero car (#55), Sister cars (none shown), and other cars you want to closely Follow (#77, #28, #89, #29, #27, #33, #22) are highlighted.
  • Quickly see if your completed and estimated lap times, or those of others, are improving.
  • See how close competitors are to minimum pit lane times and how many laps they have driven in their current stints.
  • Select which classes and columns you wish to Show or Hide.

Track Map

The Track Map individually models car movement using their earlier sector times.
  • Hero (#55) car can be immediately located by a Target Box and Radar Line.
  • Follow cars are larger and have Data Boards circulating with their car markers, showing their Class Position as well as their start/finish Gaps and Closing Rates relative to your Hero.
  • Non-follow cars are smaller reducing noise.
  • A Hero Tail configured with your pit delta shows you position lost for a pit stop.
  • Target Boxes also highlight class leaders.
  • A Circular map (not shown) may be used to easily visualize the circuit by time.

Track Order

The Track Order panel accompanies track map to help visualize the ordering behind overall leader or SC. This is particularly useful when cars are overlapped on the track map. Ordering is updated at every intermediate timing loop crossing.


Sectors

The Sectors panel details sector and lap times for the selected car.

  • The Working lap's (L19) sectors times are recorded as sectors are completed.
  • Faster and Slower arrows show how each working lap's sectors compares with his Best, Rolling, and Theoretical lap's sector times.
  • E-prefixed (estimated) lap times, predict the working lap time, by using remaining sector times from Best, Rolling, and Theoretical.

Pits & Stints

The Pit In-Out Stints panel displays both the session chronology and summary of driver and pit lanes times for the selected car. The pit-in and pit-out time line crossings divide the chronology.


Race Gap Chart

The Race Gapchart visualizes the race via a lap-by-lap (x-axis) view of time gaps to the Hero car (y-axis).

  • Cars ahead of the hero are above his Y=0 line while cars behind appear below.
  • Faster cars have upwards slopes while slower cars have downwards slopes.
  • Pit stops are indicated as circles.
  • Yellow flag periods are displayed as bands.
