Including database of racetracks

In 2019 features to load and analyse different driving lines calculated out of on-car recorded GPS data were created.

The V2020 version of LapSim contains a database of LapSim compatible driving lines determined out of graphical data.

This may seem a small difference, but it is a major shift compared to the past, were driving lines were determined out of on-car data.

Combining these two developments, provides an outlook of the next development:

Driving line optimisation

The next step is to enable altering of the driving line, creating an option to analyse and subsequently optimise the driving line for a certain vehicle at a racetrack.

We are excited about this new development and are convinced that being able to alter the driving line, will help you to improve your performance at the track.

Make something complex, feel easy
Extensively tested in DTM and LMP1

We are just asking your time

We believe in our approach and are confident that if you are looking for simulation software and are willing to invest your time, LapSim will convince you. Also in the licensed versions, the software will remain the same. So if you subsequently purchase a license you will know exactly what you are getting.

Available since 2004

A free version has been available from 2004 onwards, due to which no other race simulation package is so extensively tested and used as LapSim for the widest variety of vehicles.

Simplification by definition

From our perspective simulation is always a simplification of a complex reality. Simplification does not automatically mean less accurate. Most important is awareness of the simplifications used in the model and if these simplifications might have an effect on the conclusions one draws out of the simulation results.

Able to correlate to the real vehicle

One should see the free version as a clear exponent of this thought. Although very limited in the amount of parameters one can edit, one should still be able to get the simulation close to the behaviour of the real vehicle, proving the statement that a 'simple' model can still generate a surprisingly good correlation.
