Motorsport helps Government tackle Coronavirus crisis
Motorsport is coming to the aid of the Government, following its call for assistance to manufacture respiratory devices during the Coronavirus Crisis.
RACE TECH is also working with the motorsport industry to help the Government tackle the COVID-19 outbreak.
A collective of UK-based Formula 1 teams, engine manufacturers and their respective technology arms, which have expert design, technology and production capabilities, and specialise in rapid prototyping and high value manufacturing, are applying their expertise to the critical needs set out by Government.
Working with Innovate UK, the High Value Manufacturing Catapult team and UCL and University College London Hospitals, the teams are evaluating a number of routes in conjunction with existing manufacturers and organisations from the aerospace and automotive sectors.
It is hoped this work, which is being rapidly progressed, will produce a tangible outcome in the next few days.
