How to use AiM data when you never get a clean lap!

Recommended Posts



A couple of weekend's ago, I raced the ChumpCar World Series race at Watkins Glen in the BimmerLine #336. I had an absolute blast! 


As I walked the pits, I couldn't help but notice how many people were using AiM Solos in their car. We were too! 


I don't know about you all, but as a 'data guy' who uses AiM to figure out how to go faster, it was really tough due to never really getting a clean lap.


Whether being passed or passing, the traffic prevented me from getting a true read over a single lap as to how well I was doing compared to my co-drivers. Plus I was super guilty of saying after my stint "I was on a fast lap but I caught traffic just in the wrong place!" (guessing some people may have said that too?)


Outside of ChumpCar I do a lot of work with racers using AiM, so I prepared two videos (triggered by my experience at Watkins) to help figure it out.


They are as follows;


PART 1: Getting your AiM data into a format ready for analysis



PART 2: Analyzing the data and finding improvement 


If you have any feedback on these, I'm always open to learning how I can help more.


I think it's important to note that this data analysis comes from just an AiM Solo so anyone using one can do this.
