Case Study – Formula E
We have worked with two Formula E teams to integrate components at the rear of their cars to tie in their suspension and gearbox structures. Using advanced engineering principles and analysis software, we aided both teams in developing the most efficient structures regarding weight and performance, enabling them to remain competitive against the rest of the field.
Systems and Powertrain Integration
With our team of highly capable engineers, we possess the knowledge and expertise from a rich motorsport background. Many of our team have been working at the pinnacle of the industry in Formula 1. Thanks to this, we can offer a wide range of engineering solutions, including systems and powertrain integration.
We can solve integration needs across multiple sectors including motorsport, automotive, marine and aerospace applications. A testament to this is our AS9100D certification, the leading quality management system standard for the aerospace industry.
Case Study – Custom build F1 track car
MGI has successfully converted a recent F1 car into a top-end performance track day car. The project entailed fitting an AER P60B twin-turbocharged engine mounted to an Xtrac semi-automatic gearbox leading to a track day car with 800+ brake horsepower and Formula 1 standards of performance and safety. With the new engine and gearbox, MGI-designed rear suspension and an electronics package which was mated to a modern day ex-F1 chassis and aerodynamic package.
Case Study – Long term partnership Formula Solutions Inc.
