He will be sharing his vast knowledge of race car braking systems targeting the subject of balance bars, proportional valves and why all this matters.
Our third speaker is Austen figueroa from Fluid Logic, who will speak on the importance of staying hydrated while racing. His presentation will provide great value on a subject that is relatively unknown to club racers and can significantly improve your on track performance. Dr. David Ferguson, PhD at Michigan State University, confirms the important role that proper and consistent hydration plays in a racecar driver’s performance. The study, the first of its kind, quantifies the impact of proper hydration in terms of braking ability, driver errors and late-race lap times.
