If you have ever wished you could drive a Formula One car, you might be closer to your goal than you think. Racing car technology, developed for optimum power, speed and safety on the track finds its way into domestic cars more often than we might expect. This makes plenty of sense when you consider the financial investment made by manufacturers to develop world beating car tech and race tech. Where better to transfer the results of that investment in racing technologies than to sales in the domestic market.
There can be no doubt about it, racing technology, be it in-car technology, race engine technology or car development, has more impact on our domestic driving experiences than we think. We take a look at how racing car technology has improved our driving lives and made us safer on the roads.
