Title: Faculty of Engineering Public Lecture Formula One Technologies used in the McLaren 12C and P1 Supercars
Date: Mon, 10 Jun 2013 18:30:00 BST
Lecture presented by Dick Glover, Director of Research, McLaren Automotive
Registration Opens at 6pm and lecture starts at 6.30pm
Lecture Theatre K325, John Anderson Building, Strathclyde
The McLaren 12C and P1 supercars are the first two of a range of products that are being launched by McLaren Automotive. In McLaren’s 50th anniversary year it is appropriate to reflect how our heritage in Formula One has impacted the development of these vehicles. In this talk, Dick Glover will focus on the Formula One technologies used in the 12C and P1 and explain how these technologies have been adapted for road car use. Specifically the talk will cover: suspension systems / vehicle dynamics; aerodynamics / cooling; engine / transmission / hybrid; composite structures; and finally the Formula One driving simulator, which is also heavily used for road car development.
