Starting Line

RCP Wide L track with Radio Shack XMods cars in distinct colors.

Easy Lap Counter is simple way to track your R/C races. It uses a standard external web camera to watch a section of your track for movement. Moving cars are recognized by color, and laps counts and lap times are tracked.

Easy Lap Counter is free to use. Future development is supported by your donations.
