    Hi,
    just wondering what that column was meant to be? The shown numbers cant be the vmax of the actual used Cars. The first one on P1 had a vmax of 296 on that lap, what does the 181.41 should be? My settings are kp/h and metric. I never mind about that, as i had allways the right numbers (vmax) from TrackMap in the DX9 version. But without TrackMap i really want to know, what that numbers are...

    By looking at it ,it would seem its using MPH .. so might be something going on with the kph/mph switch .. ?

    296kph converts to 183.9 mph ...

    It's average speed for the lap. Lap time divided by lap distance. Should be in the units you've chosen, kph in your case.

    Should be perfect for Indianapolis 500 and similar venues where laps are commonly reported as the average speed rather than as lap times.
