Recentely LowFuelMotorsport added rFactor2 to their daily hosting.
While there's a fixed setup Renault Alpine series, there are also GTE, LMP or GT cars that certainly require some mechanic skills.
We reacted quickly and implemented rFactor2 to our structure.
Right now we can upload Setups, Replays and motec files. Our tool needs yet to be updated to support our own visualization and the track maps and driving line you are used to. We are working on changing this, so in the mean time we rely on motec data. A workbook can be found on the discord in #workbooks for the motec files to display correctly.
We are working on clearing the blanks in the data base for all possible rf2 track and car combos, but it might take some time to fill. Keep using the request function, so we know what to focus on!

People using Popometer and recording many laps makes us very happy. However, we are simply running out of storage. This means we are making saving laps part of the subscription to be able to on our end subscribe to more storage. It will still be FREE to save up to 3 laps per car/track combo. The subscription is now available here.
The 5.00 € Pro subscription will allow you to save up to 10 laps per car/track combo. A future Ultimate subscription will allow even more laps to be saved.
Automatically we will be saving your 3 (or 10 respectively) fastest laps per combo. With the subscription you can select to save specific laps in your laps list. Then we will only overwrite the remaining slots with faster laps.
We are not going to charge without new features, though. We always want to bring more value when we go for your pocket (well, not want to but have to, let’s face it ;) ). That’s why we’ve been working to create the new Team/Group functionality.
Once you have become a subscriber, you will be able to create/join one team or group via the new “Teams” button in the menu. Once the team is created, you will find an invitation link on top of the teams page. Pass that on to your mates. Whoever clicks the link will appear as a request to the team owner, before being allowed access to the group’s laps.
Members of a group will now also see a share icon next to their laps in the laps list. Clicking that will share that lap immediately with your team. Your shared lap will automatically also count towards your 10 saved laps for that combo.
Once you are reviewing a lap of your own you will now also find shared laps of team members on the same track in the compare dropdown. Or you can go to your Team and click on the “laps” tab there to view a list of all shared laps within that team.
Expect the possibility to join multiple teams in the ultimate subscription. That’s still a while out, though!
Also the subscription is a needed revenue stream for the project. Our aim always is to make it viable for the creators to offer their setups and data here instead of elsewhere, which is why the creators get a large share of every purchase you make - that’s before tax and fees kick in. In light of the latter, we will hopefully soon add the option to charge your account with data pack activations up front in order to reduce the number of transactions, which should allow us to save fees and pass on the lowered cost of each transaction.
As always, let us know if you come across any issue, we hope the new feature comes in handy!

What is Popometer.io?
Popometer.io is a new telemetry and setup platform for Assetto Corsa Competizione (PC). Its aim is to help drivers improve by showing them exactly what they are doing differently than faster drivers. We will provide tutorials on how to read and interpret the data, so you understand how to spot the problem.
How does it work?
We provide a small recording tool that will run in the background. It will collect basic information while driving like speed and driver inputs. Just run the tool and forget about it. All laps driven with the tool running will appear in your profile and are ready to be reviewed after a small processing phase.
Creators: Comparing to Pro Drivers
We are working with many known professional drivers on ACC, who will create “Data Packs”.
A “Data Pack” always includes at least 1 Setup and a reference lap with that setup. Once you purchase a “Data Pack” you will be able to compare your laps against those of the professionals. Similar to other software like Motec you will see:
Unlike other software you will be able to see exactly where the pros are placing the car on track, where they are starting to steer, brake and accelerate.
We are combining the best of other similar services out there:
Creators are free to create whatever data they want or how many setups will be included in a package.
For example they can create packages with fast and unstable setups for the competitive drivers, yet they can also provide setups catered towards drivability and endurance, or simply for less experienced drivers - ideally there is a setup available for everyone. The platform shares the bigger part of the revenue with the creators.
As opposed to motec, Popometer.io does not need any understanding of the software and only takes seconds to set up, while reducing information to those relevant for driving. Because we do not know what car/track combinations are most desired, you can request certain Data Packs and our creators will see which are asked for the most.
Features in the future
While the platform is rolled out to the public with the most basic function, we already have a roadmap ahead, including but not limited to:
- Intra-team comparison
- More pricing options
- More payment options
- Quick zoom into specific track sections
- TC/ABS readings
- Automated hints based on your driving patterns
- Notifications about requested Data Packs becoming available
- Coaching bookings
- Adding support for more games
- More languages
- General improvements to usability and visualization
Become a creator and earn
Right now we are already working with several experts on specific cars like the AMG, BMW, Porsche or Bentley. However, to cover all cars, if you are an expert on a certain vehicle (setup and driving wise), let us know and we’ll see if you can become a creator.
If you are very good with setups, but your driving isn’t the best of the best, feel free to reach out anyway and we’ll have a pro driver pick up your setup to create a Data Pack.
Like with any software we expect to experience issues and come across various bugs. Please let us know on Discord under the Popometer section in #bug-n-issue-reports if you come across anything that needs addressing.
