Students are responsible for Data Analysis both at the track and at the University. The team currently run Race Technology DL1, Motec and Racelogic Vbox data acquisition systems. Our cars are capable of logging a wide variety of parameters from steering, throttle position and speed to pushrod loads and damper positions. This wide range of data is then used to inform the race engineer of potential setup development avenues or to support development of our simulation models.
Base Performance Simulator
Driver in the loop
Our professional Driver in the Loop simulator allows the team to test at all the circuits on the calendar without leaving the campus. The simulator is a static simulator with a fully immersive 180 degree wrap around screen and sound system, supported by a professional FREX steering system and pedals. The simulator is used for track familiarisation and driver development as well as setup development so that parameters such as gear ratios have been tested before the team arrive at the circuit. It is also used to investigate possible development paths so that resources may be focussed at achieving the best performance increase efficiently.
Reiza Studios Automobilista MCR Sports 2000 Model
TeamMCR worked with Reiza Studios and a fellow competitor on the grid, Keith Mizen to help develop an MCR Sports 2000 vehicle model based on real data to be incorporated in to the Automobilista Simulator software. This is now available to the public and has shown very good correlation with the performance of the real car.
