Default Comparison study LRP TCM 2012 and VRC Pro Worlds Ronald Volker

We have compared Ronald Volker's laps at the LRP TCM 2012 with his laps at the LRP track in VRC Pro, the outcome was surprizing!

On the 2012 LRP TCM track, Ronald qualified about a lap faster than at the VRC Pro World 2011: 24 laps in 5:06.056 vs 23 laps om 5:09.810. That's 0.68 sec per lap faster! So where is the difference? Well, it actually turns out that the 2 chicanes are a lot easier this year (the VRC Pro track was modelled last year) and that's where this time was lost.

In the video below you can see that we have shifted the 'real car' video back so both cars cross the finish line at the end of the lap at the same moment. At the end of the second chicane he has already caught up with the virtual car, from there the cars run exactly synchronized.

Amazing study, you can check out the video:

That is sick

Now I want a laptop that is capable of playing the program so I can take it to work and practice during my lunch hour.

It would be nice if you could produce one video with both cars in it, like Roland chasing virtual Ronald

I cannot believe how fast the 'modified' VRC racers are. I almost have a chance in Spec classes, but the 'open' classes w/ the nearly indefinite set of setup options that don't 100% align to the real world are just a PITA

No kidding. The best I can manage at LRP 2007 is a 15.2.

That small turn doesn't seem to make up for 0.68 a lap.
