Accurate to 1/1000th second, the Precision Scalextric Lap Counter & Timer is much superior to the standard Scalextric model. Compatible with any modern computer that can run a web browser. Produces a graph of lap times, not just the basic info produced by the standard Scalextric model. And, you can try it here (see further down this article for instructions)
Note the software has been designed to be operated using a keyboard (although you can still use a mouse if you wish). Key controls are: 1 = simulate Track 1 lap ("a" also works) 2 = simulate Track 2 lap ("q" also works) n = new race (you need to press this before the software will start counting laps) t = about e = settings f = show times for the 10 fastest laps for each track Note that the first time you press "1" or "2" on a given race, the software doesn't actually record a new lap - it just starts the timer. This is intuitive when used on a real Scalextric track (ie the cars cross the start line) but not so when "testing" the software on a keyboard. Also, note that the "Vroom" noise indicates a new "fastest lap"
