SplitTime is a utility that displays split times at every quarter of a track
while you drive. Not only are the current split times displayed, but also
the best split-times for comparison - just like in real F1. The only
difference is that this utility uses 3 splits (at exactly 25%, 50% and 75%)
rather than F1's 2 splits.
The purpose of SplitTime is to give you an indication of how good your
current lap is going to be, so you don't have to drive the whole lap before
finding out that you are off the pace. Normally, you would have your own
physical markers on the track at which you would look at the timer to see
how fast you are. But with SplitTime you can forget those and use these very
accurate splittimes instead.
Besides showing (best) splittimes it also keeps track of the best split
differences, calculated by looking at the time between two consecutive
splittimes. The four best differences are always remembered, and from these
a virtual lap is calculated - allowing you to see what time you could have
driven if you had only done a perfect lap. All these other times can be
seen in the SplitTime window, rather than from within the game itself.
As well as the split time display, an extra
indicator is added to the dashboard which lights up when you beat your
previous split time (it's colour-coded to tell you which splits or
differences you have beaten).
Needless to say, all times can be saved so you'll never lose your best
splits. This means you always have your best splits to improve on. The
splits can also be printed, if needed.
