The subjective assessment of the performances follows specific testing criteria focused on steering, stability and grip area. The output of the test is a detailed evaluation sheet with numeric ratings and qualitative comments. In addition to the subjective evaluation, the lap times are automatically recorded and reported. The overall result reflect both subjective judgment and average lap times.
