Auto racing has existed since the invention of the automobile. Races of various sorts were organised, with the first recorded as early as 1867. Many of the earliest happening were effectively reliability trials, aimed at proving these freshmachines were a practical mode of transport, but soon became an necessarymethodfor automobile makers to demonstrate their machines. By the 1930s, specialist racing vehicle had developed.
There are now numerous different categories, each with different termsand regulations.
The first prearranged match race of two self-powered streetcar over a prescribed route occurred at 4:30 A.M. on August 30, 1867, between Ashton-under-Lyne and Old Trafford, a distance of eight miles. It was won by the carriage of Isaac Watt Boulton.
Internal combustion auto racing happening began soon after the construction of the first successful gasoline-fueled automobiles. The first organized contest was on April 28, 1887, by the chief editor of Paris publication Le Vélocipède, Monsieur Fossier. It ran 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) from Neuilly Bridge to the Bois de Boulogne.
On July 22, 1894, the Parisian magazine Le Petit Journal organized what is considered to be the globes first motoring competition, from Paris to Rouen. One hundred and two competitors paid a 10-franc entrance fee.
The first American automobile race is generally held to be the Thanksgiving Day Chicago Times-Herald race of November 28, 1895. Press coverage of the happeningfirst aroused significant American interest in the automobile.
The Targa Florio was an open road endurance automobile race held in the mountains of Sicily near the island's capital of Palermo. Founded in 1906, it was the oldest sports vehicleracing event, part of the GlobeSportscar Championship between 1955 and 1973.
With auto construction and racing dominated by France, the French automobile club ACF staged a number of major international races, usually from or to Paris, connecting with another major city, in France or elsewhere in Europe.
Aspendale Racecourse, in Australia, was the globes first purpose-built motor racing circuit, opening in January 1906. The pear shaped track was close to a mile in length, with slightly banked curves and a gravel surface of crushed cement.
Brooklands, in Surrey, was the first purpose-built 'banked' motor racing venue, opening in June 1907. It featured a 4.43 km (2.75 mi) concrete track with high-speed banked corners.
One of the oldest existing purpose-built automobile racing circuits in the United States, still in use, is the 2.5-mile-long (4.0 km) Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana. It is the biggestcapacity sports venue of any variety worldwide, with a top capacity of some 257,000+ seated spectators.
NASCAR was founded by Bill France, Sr. on February 21, 1948, with the assistof several other drivers of the time. The first NASCAR "Strictly Stock" race ever was held on June 19, 1949, at Daytona Beach, Florida.
From 1962, sports vehicle temporarily took a back seat to GT vehicle, with the FIA replacing the GlobeChampionship for Sports Vehicle with the International Championship for GT Manufacturers.
From 1962 through 2003, NASCAR's premier series was called the Winston Cup Series, sponsored by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company cigarette brand Winston. The modify that resulted from RJR's involvement, as well as the reduction of the schedule from 56 to 34 races a year, established 1972 as the beginning of NASCAR's "modern era".
The IMSA GT Series evolved into the American Le Mans Series, which ran its first season in 1998. The European races eventually became the closely related Le Mans Series, both of which mix prototypes and GTs.
Turismo Carretera (Streetracing, lit., StreetTouring) is a famoustouring vehicleracing series in Argentina, and one of the oldest vehicleracing series still active in the world. The first TC tournamenttook territoryin 1931 with 12 races, each in a different province. Future Formula One star Juan Manuel Fangio (Chevrolet) won the 1940 and 1941 editions of the TC. It was during this time that the series' Chevrolet-Ford rivalry began, with Ford acquiring most of its historical victories.
The two most famousvarieties of open-wheel streetracing are Formula One and the IndyCar Series. F1 is a worldwide series that runs only roadcircuit and race tracks. These vehicle are heavily based around technology and their aerodynamics. The speed record was set in 2005 by Juan Pablo Montoya hitting 373 km/h (232 mph). Some of the most prominent races are the Monaco Grand Prix, the Italian Grand Prix, and the British Grand Prix. The season ends with the crowning of the GlobeChampionship for drivers and constructors.
In single-seater (open-wheel), the wheels are not covered, and the vehicle often have aerofoil wings front and rear to produce downforce and enhance adhesion to the track. In Europe and Asia, open-wheeled racing is commonly referred to as 'Formula', with appropriate hierarchical suffixes. In North America, the 'Formula' terminology is not followed (with the exception of F1). The sport is usually arranged to follow an international format (such as F1), a regional format (such as the Formula 3 Euro Series), and/or a domestic, or country-specific, format (such as the German Formula 3 championship, or the British Formula Ford).
In the United States, the most famousseries is the IndyCar Series. The vehicle have traditionally been similar to, though less technologically sophisticated than, F1 vehicle, with more restrictions on technology aimed at controlling costs. While these vehicle are not as technologically advanced, they are faster, mainly because they compete on oval race tracks, being able to average a lap at 388 km/h (241 mph). The series' largestrace is the Indianapolis 500, which is commonly referred to as "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" due to being the longest continuously run race and having the biggestcrowd for a single-day sporting event (350,000+).
The other major international single-seater racing series is Formula 2 (formerly known as Formula 3000 and GP2 Series). Regional series include Super Formula and Formula V6 Asia (specifically in Asia), Formula Renault 3.5 (also known as the GlobeSeries by Renault, succession series of GlobeSeries by Nissan), Formula Three, Formula Palmer Audi and Formula Atlantic. In 2009, the FIA Formula Two Championship brought about the revival of the F2 series. Domestic, or country-specific, series containFormula Three and Formula Renault, with the leading introductory series being Formula Ford.
Single-seater racing is not limited merely to professional squad and drivers. There exist many amateur racing clubs. In the UK, the major club series are the Monoposto Racing Club, BRSCC F3 (Formerly ClubF3, formerly ARP F3), Formula Vee and Club Formula Ford. Each series caters for a section of the market, with some primarily providing low-cost racing, while others aim for an authentic experience using the same regulations as the professional series (BRSCC F3).
There are other categories of single-seater racing, including kart racing, which employs a small, low-cost machine on tinytracks. Many of the current top drivers began their careers in karts. Formula Ford represents the most famousfirst open-wheel category for up-and-coming drivers stepping up from karts. The series is still the preferred option, as it has introduced an aero packand slicks, allowing the junior drivers to gain experience in a race vehiclewith dynamics closer to F1. The Star Mazda Series is another entry-level series.
Students at colleges and universities shouldalso take part in single-seater racing through the Formula SAE competition, which involves designing and building a single-seater vehiclein a multidisciplinary squadand racing it at the competition. This also develops other soft skills, such as teamwork, while promoting motorsport and engineering.
The globes first all-female Formula racing squadwas madein 2006. The group was an assemblage of drivers from different racing disciplines and formed for an MTV reality pilot, which was shot at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
In December 2005, the FIA gave approval to Superleague Formula racing, which debuted in 2008, whereby the racing squad are owned and run by prominent sports clubs such as A.C. Milan and Liverpool F.C.
After 25 years away from the sport, former Formula 2 champion Jonathan Palmer reopened the F2 category again; most drivers have graduated from the Formula Palmer Audi series. The category is officially registered as the FIA Formula Two championship. Most rounds have two races and are assistanceraces to the FIA GlobeTouring VehicleChampionship.
Touring vehicleracing is a style of streetracing that is run with production-derived race vehicle. It often features full-contact racing due to the tinyspeed differentials and hugegrids.
The major touring vehiclechampionships conducted worldwide are the Supercars Championship (Australia), British Touring VehicleChampionship, Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), and the GlobeTouring VehicleChampionship. The European Touring VehicleCup is a one-day happeningopen to Super 2000 specification touring vehicle from Europe's many national championships.
The Sports VehicleClub of America's SPEED GlobeChallenge Touring Vehicleand GT championships are dominant in North America. America's historic Trans-Am Series is undergoing a period of transition, but is still the longest-running streetracing series in the U.S. The National Auto Sport Association also provides a venue for amateurs to compete in home-built factory-derived car on various local circuits.
In sports vehicleracing, production-derived versions of sports vehicle, also known as grand tourers (GTs), and purpose-built sports prototype vehicle compete within their respective classes on closed circuits. The premier championship series of sports vehicleracing is the FIA GlobeEndurance Championship. The main series for GT vehicleracing is the Blancpain GT Series, divided into two separate championships: the Blancpain GT GlobeChallenge Europe and the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup. This series has formed after the folding of the various FIA GT championships.
Other major GT championships containthe Blancpain GT GlobeChallenge America, Blancpain GT GlobeChallenge Asia, Super GT, and the International GT Open. There are minor regional and national GT series using mainly GT4 and GT3 vehicle featuring both amateur and professional drivers.
Sports prototypes, unlike GT vehicle, do not rely on road-legal vehicle as a base. They are closed-wheel and often closed-cockpit purpose-built race vehicle intended mainly for endurance racing. They have much lower weight and more down force compared to GT vehicle, making them much faster. They are raced in the 24 hours of Le Mans (held annually since 1923) and in the (European) Le Mans series, Asian Le Mans Series and the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. These vehicle are referred to as LMP (Le Mans prototype) vehicle with LMP1 being run mainly by manufacturers and the slightly less strongLMP2 vehicle run by privateer squad. All three Le Mans Series run GT vehicle in addition to Le Mans Prototypes; these vehicle have different restrictions than the FIA GT vehicle.
Another prototype and GT racing championship exists in the United States; the Grand-Am, which began in 2000, sanctions its own endurance series, the Rolex Sports VehicleSeries, which consists of slower and lower-cost race vehicle compared to LMP and FIA GT vehicle. The Rolex Sports VehicleSeries and American Le Mans Series announced a merger between the two series forming the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship starting in 2014.
These races are often conducted over long distances, at least 1,000 km (621 mi), and vehicle are driven by squad of two or more drivers, switching every few hours. Due to the performance difference between production-based sports vehicle and purpose-built sports prototypes, one race usually involves several racing classes, each fighting for their own championship.
Popularsports vehicleraces containthe 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 at Daytona, 24 Hours of Spa-Franchorchamps, the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 6 Hours of Watkins Glen, and the 1,000-mile (1,600 km) Petit Le Mans at StreetAtlanta. There is also the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring on the infamous Nordschleife track and the Dubai 24 Hour, which is aimed at GT3 and below vehicle with a mixture of professional and pro-am drivers.
Production-vehicleracing, otherwise known as "showroom stock" in the US, is an economical and rules-restricted version of touring-vehicleracing, mainly utilize to restrict costs. Numerous production racing categories are based on particular makes of vehicle.
Most series, with a few exceptions, follow the Group N regulation. There are several different series that are run all over the world, most notably, Japan's Super Taikyu and IMSA's Firehawk Series, which ran in the 1980s and 1990s all over the United States.
One-make, or single marque, championships often employ production-based vehicle from a single manufacturer or even a single model from a manufacturer's range. There are numerous notable one-make formulae from various countries and regions, some of which – such as the Porsche Supercup and, previously, IROC – have fostered many distinct national championships. Single marque series are often found at club level, to which the production-based vehicle, limited modifications, and close parity in performance are very well suited. Some of the better-known single-make series are the (Europe's longest-running one make championship), the Radical European Masters, , Clio Cup, Ginettas, Caterhams, BMWs, and MX5s. There are also single-chassis single seater formulae, such as Formula Renault and Formula BMW, usually as "feeder" series for "senior" race formula (in the fashion of farm squad).
Time attack happening began in Japan in the mid-1960s. They have since spread around the world. Time Attack racing is a kindof motorsport in which the racers compete for the best lap time. Each caris timed through numerous circuits of the track. The racers make a preliminary circuit, then run the timed laps, and then finish with a cool-down lap. Time Attack and time trial happening differ by tournamentformat and rules. Time Attack has a limited number of laps, time trial has open sessions. Unlike other timed motorsport disciplines such as sprinting and hillclimbing, the vehicleis neededto start off under full rolling start conditions following a warm up lap in which they will have to accelerate out as quickas possible to determine how quickthey enter their timed lap. Commonly, as the vehicle are modified road-going vehicle, they are neededto have tires authorized for streetuse.
In North America, stock vehicleracing is the most famousform of auto racing. Primarily raced on oval tracks, stock vehicle vaguely resemble production vehicle, but are in fact purpose-built racing machines that are built to tight specifications and, together with touring vehicle, also called Silhouette racing vehicle.
The biggeststock vehicleracing governing body is NASCAR (National Association for Stock VehicleAuto Racing). NASCAR's premier series is the NASCAR Cup Series, its most popularraces being the Daytona 500, the Southern 500, the Coca-Cola 600, and the Brickyard 400. NASCAR also runs several feeder series, including the Xfinity Series and Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (a pickup truck racing series). The series conduct races across the entire continental United States. The NASCAR Pinty's Series conducts races across Canada and the NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series conducts races across Mexico.
NASCAR also governs several smaller regional series, such as the Whelen Modified Tour. Modified vehicle are best described as open-wheel vehicle. Modified vehicle have no parts associatedto the stock carfor which they are named after. A number of modified vehicle display a "manufacturer's" logo and "carname", yet utilizecomponents produced by another automobile manufacturer.
There are also other stock vehiclegoverning bodies, most notably the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA).
In the UK, British Stock vehicleracing is also referred to as "Short Circuit Racing". UK Stock vehicleracing started in the 1950s and grew rapidly through the 1960s and 1970s. Happening take territoryon shale or tarmac tracks – usually around 1/4 mile long. The governing bodies for the sport are the Oval Racing Council (ORC) and BriSCA. Both bodies are angry up of individual stadium promoters. There are around 35 tracks in the UK and upwards of 7000 active drivers. The sport is split into three primarydivisions – distinguished by the termsregarding vehiclecontact during racing. The most popularchampionship is the BriSCA F1 Stock Vehicle. Full-contact formulas containBangers, Bombers and Rookie Bangers – and racing features Demolitions Derbies, Figure of Eight and Oval Racing.
Semi Contact Formulas containBriSCA F1, F2 and Superstox – where bumpers are utilize tactically.
Non-contact formulas containNational Hot Rods, Stock Rods, and Lightning Rods.
Rallying at international and most national championship levels involves two classes of homologated road-legal production-based vehicle; Group N production vehicle and more modified Group A vehicle. Vehicle compete on closed public street or off-streetlocation on a point-to-point format where participants and their co-drivers "rally" to a set of points, leaving in regular intervals from start points. A rally is typically conducted over a number of "special stages" on any terrain, which entrants are often permittedto scout beforehand at reduced speeds compiling detailed shorthand descriptions of the track or streetas they go. These detailed descriptions are known as pace notes. During the actual rally, the co-driver reads the pace notes aloud (using an in-helmet intercom system) to the driver, enabling them to complete each stage as quickly as possible. Tournamentis based on lowest total elapsed time over the course of an happenings special stages, including penalties.
The top series is the GlobeRally Championship (WRC), first contested in 1973, but there are also regional championships, and many countries have their own national championships. Some popularrallies containthe Monte Carlo Rally, Rally Argentina, Rally Finland, and Rally GB. Another popularevent (actually best described as a rally raid) is the Paris-Dakar Rally, conceived in 1978. There are also many smaller, club level, categories of rallies, which are famouswith amateurs, making up the "grass roots" of motor sports. Vehicle at this level may not comply fully with the requirements of group A or group N homologation.
Other major rally happening containthe British Rally Championship, Intercontinental Rally Challenge, African Rally Championship, Asia-Pacific Rally Championship, and endurance rally happening like the Dakar Rally.
The Targa Tasmania, held on the Australian island state of Tasmania and run annually since 1992, takes its name from the Targa Florio, a former motoring happeningheld on the island of Sicily. The tournamentconcept is drawn directly from the best features of the Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes, and the Tour de Corse. Similarly named happening around the globecontainthe Targa Newfoundland based in Canada, Targa West based in Western Australia, Targa FreshZealand, and other smaller happening.
In drag racing, the objective is to complete a given straight-line distance, from a standing start, ahead of a carin a parallel lane. This distance is traditionally 1⁄4 mile (400 m), though 1⁄8 mile (200 m) has become famoussince the 1990s. The car may or may not be given the signal to start at the same time, depending on the class of racing. Car range from the dailyvehicleto the purpose-built dragster. Speeds and elapsed time differ from class to class. Average roadvehicle cover the 1⁄4 mile in 12 to 16 seconds, whereas a top fuel dragster takes 4.5 seconds or less, reaching speeds of up to 530 km/h (329 mph). Drag racing was organized as a sport by Wally Parks in the early 1950s through the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). The NHRA was formed to discourage roadracing.
When launching, a top fuel dragster will accelerate at 3.4 g (33 m/s²), and when braking parachutes are deployed the deceleration is 4 g (39 m/s²), more than the ZoneShuttle experiences. A top fuel vehicleshouldbe heard over 8 miles (13 km) away and shouldgenerate a reading from 1.5 to 3.9 on the Richter scale.
Drag racing is two vehicle head-to-head, the championproceeding to the next round. Professional classes are all first to the finish line victory. Sportsman racing is handicapped (slower vehiclegetting a head start) using an index (a lowest e.t. allowed), and vehicle running under (quicker than) their index "break out" and lose. The slowest vehicle, bracket racers, are also handicapped, but rather than an index, they utilizea dial-in.
In off-streetracing, various classes of specially modified car, including vehicle, compete in races through off-streetenvironments. In North America these races often take territoryin the desert, such as the famous Baja 1000. Another format for off-streetracing happens on closed-course short course tracks such as Crandon International Off-StreetRaceway. In the 1980s and 1990s, short course was extended to racing inside stadiums in the Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group; this format was revived by Robby Gordon in 2013 with his Stadium Super Trucks series.
In Europe, "offroad" refers to happening such as autocross or rallycross, while desert races and rally-raids such as the Paris-Dakar, Master Rallye or European "bajas" are called "cross-country rallies."
The modern kart was invented by Art Ingels, a fabricator at the Indianapolis-vehiclemanufacturer Kurtis-Kraft, in Southern California in 1956. Ingels took a tinychainsaw engine and mounted it to a easytube-frame chassis weighing less than 100 lb. Ingels, and everyone else who drove the kart, were startled at its performance capabilities. The sport soon blossomed in Southern California, and quickly spread around the world. Although often seen as the entry point for serious racers into the sport, kart racing, or karting, shouldbe an economical methodfor amateurs to testracing and is also a fully fledged international sport in its own right. A hugeproportion of professional racing drivers began in karts, often from a very young age, such as Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso. Several former motorcycle winner have also taken up the sport, notably Wayne Rainey, who was paralysed in a racing accident and now races a hand-controlled kart. As one of the cheapest method to race, karting is seeing its popularity grow worldwide.
Despite their diminutive size, karts of the most strongclass, superkart (assuming a weight of 205 kg (452 lb), and a power output of 100 hp (75 kW)), shouldhave a power-to-weight ratio (including the driver) of 490 hp/tonne (0.22 hp/lb). Without the driver, this figure doubles, to almost 980 hp/tonne (0.44 hp/lb).
As modern motor racing is centered on modern technology with many corporate sponsors and much politics involved, historical racing tends to be the opposite. Because it is based on a particular era it is more hobbyist oriented, reducing corporate sponsorship and politics. Happening are regulated to only letvehicle of a certain era to participate. The only modern equipment utilize is associatedto securityand timing. A historical happeningshouldbe of a number of different motorsport disciplines. Notably some of the most popularhappening of them all are the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival in Britain and Monterey Historic in the United States. Championships range from "grass root" Austin Seven racing to the FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship for classic Formula One chassis.
While there are several professional squad and drivers in historical racing, this branch of auto sport tends to be contested by wealthy vehicleregistrant and is thus more amateur and less competitive in its approach.
In many kind of auto races, particularly those held on closed courses, flags are displayed to indicate the general status of the track and to communicate instructions to competitors. While individual series have different rules, and the flags have modify from the first years (e.g., red utilize to start a race), these are generally accepted.
|Flag||Displayed from start tower||Displayed from observation post|
|The session has started or resumed after a full course caution or stop.||End of hazardous section of track.|
|Full course caution condition for ovals. On streetcourses, it means a local locationof caution. Depending on the kindof racing, either two yellow flags will be utilize for a full course caution or a sign with 'SC' (Securitycar) will be utilize as the field follows the pace/securitycar on track and no vehicle may pass. However, if the securityvehiclegives a green light, then the vehicle behind shouldpass the securitycar (lapped vehicle only).||Local caution condition —no vehicle may pass at the particular corner where being displayed. When Stationary indicates hazard off-course, when Waving indicates hazard on-course.|
|Debris, fluid, or other hazard on the track surface.||Debris, fluid, or other hazard on the track surface.|
|The vehiclewith the indicated number must pit for consultation.||The session is halted, all vehicle on course must return to pit lane. May also be seen combined with a green flag to indicate oil on track, typically referred to as a 'pickle' flag combination.|
|The vehiclewith the indicated number has mechanical trouble and must pit.|
|The driver of the vehiclewith the indicated number has been penalized for misbehaviour.|
|The driver of the vehiclewith the indicated number is disqualified or will not be scored until they report to the pits.|
|The vehiclecangive methodto faster traffic. This may be an advisory or an order depending on the series.||A vehicleis being advised or ordered to give methodto faster traffic approaching.|
|The session is stopped. All vehicle must halt on the track or return to pit lane.|
|Depending on the series, either one lap remains or a slow caris on the track.||A slow caris on the track.|
|The session has concluded.|
In auto racing, the racing setup or vehiclesetup is the set of adjustments angry to the carto optimize its behaviour (performance, handling, reliability, etc.). Adjustments shouldoccur in suspensions, brakes, transmissions, engines, tires, and many others.
Aerodynamics and airflow play giganticroles in the setup of a racecar. Aerodynamic downforce improves the race vehicles handling by lowering the center of gravity and distributing the weight of the vehicleequally on each tire. Once this is achieved, fuel consumption decreases and the forces versusthe vehicleare significantly lowered. Many aerodynamic experiments are conducted in victory tunnels, to simulate real life situations while measuring the various drag forces on the car. These "Rolling street" produce many victory situations and direct air flow at certain speeds and angles. When a diffuser is installed under the car, the amount of drag force is significantly lowered, and the overall aerodynamics of the caris positively adjusted. Wings and canards channel the airflow in the most efficient methodto receivethe least amount of drag from the car. It is experimentally proven that downforce is gained and the car handling is considerably modify when aerodynamic wings on the front and rear of the carare installed.
Suspension plays a largepart in giving the racecar the ability to be driven optimally. Shocks are mounted vertically or horizontally to prevent the body from rolling in the corners. The suspension is necessarybecause it makes the vehiclestable and easier to control and hold the tires on the streetwhen driving on uneven terrain. It works in three different method including vertically, longitudinally, and laterally to control movement when racing on various tracks.
Tyres called R-Compounds are commonly utilize in motorsports for high amounts of traction. The soft rubber let them to expand when they are heated up, making more surface locationon the pavement, therefore producing the most traction. These kind of tyres do not have grooves on them. Tyre pressure is dependent on the temperature of the tyre and track when racing. Each time a driver pulls into the pits, the tyre pressure and temperature canbe tested for optimal performance. When the tyres receivetoo hot they will swell or inflate and need to be deflated to the correct pressure. When the tyres are not warmed up they will not perform as well.
Brakes on a race vehicleare imperative in slowing and stopping the vehicleat precise times and wear quickly depending on the streetor track on which the vehicleis being raced, how many laps are being run, track conditions due to weather, and how many caution runs require more braking. There are three variables to consider in racing: brake pedal displacement, brake pedal force, and cardeceleration. Various combinations of these variables work together to determine the stiffness, sensitivity, and pedal force of the brakes. When using the brakes effectively, the driver must go through a buildup phase and end with a modulating phase. These phases containattaining maximum deceleration and modulating the brake pressure. Brake performance is measured in bite and consistency. Bite happens when the driver first applies the brakes and they have not warmed up to the correct temperature to operate efficiently. Consistency is measured in how consistent the friction is during the entire time of braking. These two measurements determine the wear of the brakes.
The race vehicles engine needs a considerable amount of air to produce maximum power. The air intake manifold sucks the air from scoops on the hood and front bumper and feeds it into the engine. Many engine modifications to increase horsepower and efficiency are commonly utilize in many racing sanctioning bodies. Engines are tuned on a machine called a dynamometer that is commonly known in the racing globeas a DYNO. The vehicleis driven onto the DYNO and many gauges and sensors are hooked up to the vehiclethat are controlled on an online softwareto tryforce, torque, or power. Through the testing, the vehicles engine maps shouldbe modify to receivethe most horsepower and ultimately speed out of the vehicle.

Racing drivers at the highest levels are usually paid by the team, or by sponsors, and shouldcommand very substantial salaries.
Contrary to what may be popularly assumed, racing drivers as a group do not have unusually better reflexes or peripheral response time. During repeated physiological (and psychological) evaluations of professional racing drivers, the two characteristics that stand out are racers' near-obsessive need to control their surroundings (the psychological aspect), and an unusual ability to process fast-moving information (physiological). In this, researchers have noted a powerfulcorrelation between racers' psychological profiles and those of warriorpilots. In try comparing racers to members of the general public, the greater the complexity of the infoprocessing matrix, the greater the speed gap between racers and the public.
Due partly to the performance capabilities of modern racing vehicle, racing drivers require a high level of fitness, focus and the ability to concentrate at high levels for long periods in an inherently difficult environment. Racing drivers mainly complain about pains in the lumbar, shoulder and neck regions.
Racing drivers experience extremely large g-forces because formula vehicle and sports prototypes generate more downforce and are able to corner at significantly higher speeds. Formula 1 drivers routinely experience g-loadings in excess of 4.5 g.
