Fun with the GPS tracker

March 22, 2015

Today Dave went to the track in Shelton to race about in his Infinity.  He had a GPS tracker in the car with him and was able to graph his speeds and location.  In the picture below you can see how accurate the GPS location is - and the shape of the racetrack in Shelton. The graph on the left shows his speeds around the track on each of his three runs.  The reason for the slower speeds is that the first run was on dry pavement and then it started to rain making the track increasingly slippy.  Top speed on the straight of way when the track was dry was 115 MPH.  That decreased to a mere 105 MPH in the rain.  Melissa says that is still crazy fast as far as she is concerned.
