JANUARY TECHNICAL WEBINAR

“Formula One Engine Development over the years”

by David Beard

CJP Chemicals and SAIT

Tuesday 23 January 2018 at 16:00

Presenter’s Background

David enjoys watching and shouting at F1 broadcasts, especially when there is no overtaking. He is astounded by the technology involved in F1 engines over the years, and what is possible, just from burning a few hydrocarbon molecules in a controlled manner. He is a car enthusiast, and was lucky enough to have a chance to participate in Historics Racing, hustling a Triumph TR6 around local tracks.

David will talk about…….

  • The history behind the development of F1 engines
  • The current specs
  • The philosophy behind the rule changes, and whether they worked
  • Technology transfer from F1 to mainstream cars
  • His take on where F1 should be headed – please argue with him!!
