Free Lap Simulator

Post Thu May 31, 2018 11:03 am

Hey guys,

I saw some posts asking for the Bosch LapSim which is of course very good and has some quite complexity to it.

Some time ago I stumbled with OptimumLap:

It's free, it's basic. According to them "OptimumLap is a free, simplified, vehicle simulation tool designed to estimate a vehicle’s performance within 10% of reality."

I have no association with them, just thought it'd be cool to share.


BTW, Optimum's website has a blog with very nice information that is always backed by a lot of data.
Come back 747, we miss you!!

Very interesting. I have worked already with ChassisSim and Racesim in Motorsport teams and I would like to create my own lap time simulator. Probably I would try to program the software with Matlab or Python. ChassisSim and Racesim are nice softwares but sometimes some vehicle model parameters don't work in the way you would have been expected when you change the inputs.. :)
