LCV2017 at Millbrook will host the Motor Industry Association seminar on the role of motorsport companies in developing future transport systems.
Following significant recent investment by major global automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers into energy efficient motorsport programmes, the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) will host an open seminar session during the first day of Cenex-LCV2017, the UK’s premier low carbon vehicle event, to explore this growing trend.
Featuring representatives from the global motorsport and automotive sectors, this inspiring and interactive session will explore how dynamic Motorsport Valley suppliers are increasingly adding value to the automotive supply chain, based on a long-established foundation of race-bred innovation, rapid response and innovative thinking.
Key developments being pioneered in motorsport include: next-generation propulsion systems, lightweight structures, high-performance battery technologies, advanced electronic systems and connected / autonomous vehicle technologies.
Chaired by MIA CEO, Chris Aylett, and featuring case study presentations from Hewland, Integral Powertrain, RML Group, Rockfort Engineering and Williams Advanced Engineering, the session will highlight motorsport’s growing role as an integral R&D resource in an energy efficient automotive future.
