Tony Kanaan is a record breaker. He is the first IndyCar Series driver to complete every possible lap in a season. Now, he’s probably also the first pro race car driver to use an iPad as a racing tool:

Tony Kanaan of Andretti Autosport describes how he uses Apple iPad during pit stops as electronic HUD to help better understand the competition and the race progress. Here’s Tony with his iPad during 2010 Grand Prix of Long Beach:

Regarding the Apple iPad, Tony Kanaan: “This is a great tool.”

He’s even thinking of putting the iPad in the multi-million dollar race car. Quick, someone get him an iPad car dash mod!

I wonder if he uses the “Grand Prix of Apps”: the F1 iPad App [itunes link]?

    COOL, but I just hope he never decides to use the iPad while driving 175 mph at the same time!
