Crucial pressure information will make V8 Supercars even closer says Red Bull team boss

 

TPMS system; when was it started?

The first production car to fit the TPMS system was the Porsche 959 in 1986. More recently the Peugeot 607 was fitted with one of these systems in 1999. In America the TPMS was introduced by General Motors for the 1991 model year for the Corvette in conjunction with Goodyear run flat tyres.

BF1 Systems started to develop such systems for the motorsport industry in 1994, so all around about the same time. The TPMS system that they have created for the motorsport industry monitors both the V8 Supercars tyre pressures and the temperature of the tyres.

This system will now be used on all cars that will be competing in the V8 Super cars.Therefore, with such teams as Red Bull Racing. Winning six out of the last seven championships. V8 Super cars are supplying a tyre pressure sensor kit.Thus, to each of the teams which will include 16 sensors (for four sets of wheels).Also a wiring loom to install an alarm in the cockpit. So the driver knows he has a tyre problem…more reading

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to be used on all F1 cars

This comes as no surprise to me?

TPMS are now becoming the norm on better quality production cars these days. Apart from letting the driver know that one of his tyres is losing pressure.As a result, it is now also better for the environment? This is because cars with lower tyre pressure will indeed use more fuel.Because a car with tyres that are not inflated to the correct pressure, will take more engine power. Therefore, use more fuel, than a car with the correct tyre pressures?

Tyre warning light

TPMS systems are extensively used on cars that do not carry a spare wheel. This is on cars that are fitted with run-flat tyres. Once again these tyres were developed for safety. Also with the environment in mind. A spare wheel added weight to the car, making the engine to work harder and so use more fuel.

So the driver knows he has a tyre problem.

Any tyre problem will then be picked up. As a result, by the Wireless Tyre Pressure Monitoring System at an early stage and should eliminate perhaps a crash, when a tyre deflation is picked up by the TPMS Valves, exactly like the standard production cars that we drive around in at the moment.
