Cosworth gets new dynos
Cosworth Racing has unveiled its new multi-million dollar dynamometer facility. This comprises three transient dyno cells, which have been custom built by the Northampton based engine company. In recent years the company has used Ford's facilities in Detroit but having its own dynos will mean that the company will be able to react faster.
"Until these dyno facilities became available, Cosworth was really trailing the capabilities of our leading competition in the very important area of transient testing," says the company's Nick Hays. "We now have access to facilities that allow us to get closer to the conditions seen in the car. The end result will be better transient behavior of the engine in the car and finer resolution of small changes with high levels of confidence of the results. In short, this facility gives us a big step forward for Cosworth Racing's F1 engine development capabilities."
