INTRODUCTION

Motorsport Biomechanics is the first to offer biomechanical services to assess and improve driver or rider fatigue and technique in any form of Motorsport whilst racing on the track.

We are the first to offer cutting edge, biomechanical data that is scientifically validated. 

KARTING

This is our founder Michael winning the Spanish go kart championship in 1989. Michael has been a super fan of go karting from the age of 8 when he started in the sport. By the time Michael reached the age of 14 he was a works driver competing at European and World Championship level with top karters like Jan Magnussen, Pedro de La Rosa, Marc Gene, Giancarlo Fisichella and Jarno Trulli to name just a few.

Since the beginning of Motorsport Biomechanics we have been collecting biomechanical data in the world of karting. In 2018, the karter we were working went 0.2 s per lap quicker after reviewing his forearm muscle activity data and realising that he was hardly using his left arm.

 

Karting has been the foundation for many careers in the world of motorsport. Our Scientists at Motorsport Biomechanics believe it is just as important to understand the movement of the body whilst driving a go kart, whatever your age.

 

Comprehensive biomechanical data assessment can help to optimise driver technique and training, understand the influence of growth and maturation on performance, and aid driver transition into other forms of motorsport.
