The lights are on poles which might be mounted to the bottom, with the concrete sections added to the particles fences on the highest for stability.
DZ Engineering provides the flood lights for the Singapore GP
F1 can put together itself for extra evening races due to a brand new flood itemizing know-how which has been developed by Swiss particles fence maker Geobrugg in partnership with lighting supplier DZ Engineering SRL. The cause this itemizing system is viable due to the associated fee — and the truth that it may be tailored by most race tracks world wide. DZ Engineering already provides lights to the Singapore GP. Its know-how permits the lights to be fitted on the particles fences which is able to permit evening races to occur in an economical means at most F1 tracks. The lights are on poles which might be mounted to the bottom, with the concrete sections added to the particles fences on the highest for stability.
“Geobrugg’s range of FIA-homologated debris fences have a ‘plug-in and play’ philosophy at their heart, so to develop a new, lighting-friendly system to simplify the process of hosting night races is another positive step forward. It also links into another key element of our ethos, which is cost-effectiveness. Night races can be expensive, particularly on temporary venues such as street circuits, so by combining the costs of those two systems together, we could see increased feasibility for these events to take place,” Jochen Braunwarth, Geobrugg’s Director of Motorsport options.
Both the businesses have already achieved a number of crash checks to make sure that the lighting system is just not compromised by the potential influence of a automobile on a particles fence. In one take a look at, a one-tonne automobile crashed into the barrier at 120 kmph and there was no motion within the lighting pole.
“We’re very satisfied with the system’s performance during both crash tests, and it’s been a great exercise to combine our resources with Geobrugg to open up a new avenue of development in this area. I hope this means that other championships get to benefit from spectacular night races that appeal to fans worldwide,” mentioned Roberto Grilli, GM of DZ Engineering.
