NEWSLETTER - Key Tools: Racing Driver Video Analysis

JB Data Engineering logo

Welcome to the February 2023 JB Data Engineering newsletter.

We’re planning on making this a monthly feature and providing you with an insight into how professional data engineering operates, as well as news and updates from the various championships we’ll be working in. Last year already seems a long time ago. However, if you’d like to read about how 2022 progressed for us, check out our 2022 Season Review. We had the opportunity to work with some fantastic teams in championships across the world and the highlights have been captured in our Season Review which you can read here. The focus is now firmly on 2023 and already the bookings are coming in and the diary is filling up. However there is still time to discuss bookings – we’d love to work with you, wherever you are racing and which ever championship you are competing in.

Racing Driver Video Analysis

One of the key tools of the competitive racing driver is video analysis, and JB Data Engineering has been helping teams and driver with this key skill for many years. Video analysis helps drivers in understanding visually where they could improve their lap-times. It is particularly useful where an amateur driver is working with a driver-coach, who is then able to identify where improvements in times can be made. JB Data Engineering recommends Racelogic’s Circuit Tools data analysis software and Aim’s Smartycam video software which provide the provide the capability to run multiple laps side-by-side. This facility allows the driver to see the vehicle data alongside video of the lap. Using GPS to plot the driver’s lines, a coach can quickly understand and explain where the lap-time can be improved.

Contact JB Data Engineering to discuss how our video analysis tools will help your driver find those essential tenths over a race weekend.
