RacePad for rFactor and rFactor 2
After many months of development, Antti Hyytiäinen and Edward van Rijn have released the RacePad app for rFactor and rFactor 2. While we have not tested it yet, the app is also reported to work on Reiza’s Game Stock Car and Automobilista.
RacePad app comes absolutely free of charge. No ads and no in-app purchases. The app can be downloaded from the App Store and is supported on any iPad running iOS 8 or later. The app will enable you to use your iPad as an external comprehensive dashboard displaying all things telemetry, such as Laptimes, Track position, Tire and Fuel info, Track map and more.
For those who want to give it a try, Antti and Edward have published an intuitive Installation and setup guide.

The timing view provides real-time updates on the drivers lap times. In practice sessions, it indicates when a driver is in the pits, when they improve their sector or laptime, what the difference is compared to the leader, and how many laps they have done. During the race it displays the best laps, the number of pitstops and the gaps between the drivers.
The dashboard combines multiple elements into one view, providing many essential details while on-track.
On top, the dashboard displays player-centric timing, indicating how each sector and laptimes compares to the driver’s own and the direct opponents’ times. Below, the dashboard shows strategic data, a car status complete with visual tire temperatures and wear, and an interactive track map.
The map view displays a large version of the track map with all drivers updated in real-time. Different colors are used to indicate whether a driver is on an out-lap, in the pits or previously lapped. The map is generated automatically for any track.
The strategy view is essential in preparing the best race strategy or adjusting it on the fly during the race. RacePad keeps track of your fuel and tyre usage, allowing it to pinpoint exactly when your next pitstop is required.
As RacePad keeps track of every single lap you have done, you can review the details on a lap by lap basis and see how they have affected your lap times.
