High Performance Motorsport
Motorsport presents a number of unique challenges to motion control suppliers. Whereas the Formula 1 industry looks for low weight, small size and high performance, rallying looks for ruggedness and the ability to perform reliably in severe conditions such as extreme temperatures, adverse weather and demanding time constraints.
Moog has been at the forefront of sub miniature actuation systems in motorsport since 1982, initially supplying active ride height equipment to Team Lotus for use on their Lotus 92 Formula 1 car. Over the intervening years, Moog has continuously developed a range of products and systems for actuation in many types of motorsport including Formula 1, World Rally Championship (WRC), Moto GP, Touring Cars, and Le Mans prototypes.
More recently, Moog has adapted its actuation technology to the control of motorsport braking, steering and fuel control systems. Examples of this diversification include:- miniature fuel pressure control valves, components for brake system pressure limiting and a standard hydro-mechanical steering valve.
We have a dedicated team of engineers, designers and product managers specializing in motorsport product development and custom systems. Our application engineers stay abreast of the latest motorsport regulations, and can offer expert advice on the design of your system. Moog also offers simulation and modelling consulting.
