(American Le Mans Series)  Driving the Green Racing Movement

One of the most important jobs of the technical community isn’t necessarily the technology developed. Rather it’s education and promotion of such advancements. Without the support and understanding of the benefits of such technologies, the greatest ideas may never leave the drawing board. So what does this have to do with racing?

Well in order to bring sustainability, improved performance and a greatly reduced environmental footprint to racing, the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón together with the U.S. Department of Energy and Argonne National Laboratory is developing a racing simulator to demonstrate advanced propulsion systems that the fans may drive to experience the benefits first-hand.

Utilizing a gaming system, engineers at Argonne National Laboratory developed a technique to co-simulate hybrid powertrains, specifically by utilizing regenerative breaking – an energy recovery mechanism that reduces speed by converting some of the vehicle’s kinetic energy into stored energy that the vehicle can use later.  READ MORE
