Default Personal Lap Counter

Does anybody know of a personal lap counter? I saw one for sale at a old track that I used to go to, but now it's shut down. If anybody has any info on one please let me know.

I have one of the 'ORIGINALS' (before Orion had their name on it)

The original won't count as fast of a lap (I think it had a 4 or 5 second minimum, where the later ones were upgraded to do quicker lap times)

I loved it for getting practice times on Road Course tracks, but for the oval we run sub 4 second laps on too many tracks...so it spends most of it's life sitting in my pit box.

2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

I have the Orion Pro LCS, and I LOVE it! This is the only way to practice, because you can time your laps AND it has audible tones to tell you when you hit your target lap time, a tone for when you run a new "fast lap", etc. so that even during practice you can try something and get instant feedback.

I also bought the PCLink software and cable -- after a run I can download the details to a laptop and save them. You can compare two separate runs side by side, you can have it factor out "crash" (bad) laps and tell you what the run would have been if you stayed clean, it tells you your fast 3 laps, your fastest single lap, etc. If you have the software, you can add information to the run about your car, motor, gearing, tires, etc. so that you can come back later and see it. It also prints nice reports. You can even export the data into a file that Excel can read...

FANTASTIC tool! -- The TRACK is the ultimate dyno, and this is the dashboard...
