As part of our IN THE KNOW series we have produced a paper looking at ‘Applying the Tungsten Heavy Alloy Knowledge and Expertise in High Performance Motorsport to other Industries’.
The Demanding Dynamics of High Performance Motorsport
High performance motorsport represents a demanding arena for automotive engineering in terms of innovation, development, performance and safety. As such, teams require dependable, experienced suppliers that can deliver first-class solutions. They also need to meet exacting industry standards. In this paper we explore these demands, focusing on the important role of specialist suppliers. We also examine how a durable, high-precision material such as tungsten alloy meets the requirements of this relentlessly challenging sport.
The engineering requirements of top flight motorsport put teams under constant pressure to deliver high-performance race cars. The race cars must meet strict regulations throughout the racing season. These demands, alongside the need to innovate and stay ahead of the competition, have led teams to look for high-quality materials and flexible, reliable suppliers to help deliver design solutions and facilitate an agile approach in aggressively condensed timeframes.
