Striving for sustainability
A Focus On Green Manufacturing
Revolution Race Cars are committed to reducing the carbon footprint of their manufacturing process, creating products through economically sound processes that minimise negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources. Learn about just a few of the initiatives below...
• 80% less energy consumption for the manufacturing of composites compared to industry standard.
• Developing the use of Flax natural fibres in composites. Conventional composite materials include fossil resources. Favouring the use of flax reduces the carbon footprint of the cars.
• Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation improves efficiency in design and efficiency on the track. The smoother the car moves through the air, the less drag and resistance it will experience. As a result, less fuel is needed to maintain constant speeds or acceleration.
• CFD reduces the number of physical prototyping tests required, reducing the consumption of materials and resources. With CFD, you can evaluate fluid flows using mathematical models accurately, without needing prototyping trials. This allows design engineers to explore design alternatives virtually.
Design & Fuel
• Clever design reduces the number of components required per car. To reduce running costs and spares requirements, components such as the uprights and rockers are identical at each corner.
• A drive to renewable fuels. There are three main replacements for traditional fossil fuels that are slated for use in the world of motorsports. Biofuels, synthetic fuels and hydrogen are of great interest, as they promise to bring motor racing closer to a carbon-neutral standard.
• Revolution Race Cars are delighted to be the development partner of R53 Suspension. The Revolution factory team work in partnership with the supply chain to push the boundaries of innovation to find better components and achieve greener manufacturing.
• R53 take state-of-the-art products to the next level. Eliminating elements without compromising quality is one of their most impactful ways to upgrade engineered components. With new innovations in additive manufacturing, they can produce a damper with significantly fewer parts, an overall lighter design (up to 45%) and better reliability.
