Did you know that race cars must have extremely powerful engines to be winners? In addition to the aerodynamics that have been implemented and the modifications, the engine is what makes the car the ultimate winner.
Let’s start with the famous Formula One Ferrari. One of the most famous engines of F1 was the Ferrari V10 F1. It was a 3.0-liter, ten-cylinder racing car that was responsible for 57 wins.
The Porsche Flat 6 was a 2.0-liter air-cooled engine.
The Porsche Flat 12 has one of the largest engines in the racing industry. There are two flat engines packed in this car. It is a 4.5-liter engine that has 1500 horsepower. You can imagine how narrow the controller must have been to make room for this massive machine.
The Mazda R26B 4-rotor could have been one of the craziest models in the racing industry. Having entered 21 races and only winning one can be a strange statistic. This race was the LeMans and it made a great impression, as it was the only car that was not a conventional piston engine and was a unique brand.
The BMW S14 was the start of the M series Winning the championship but not winning races, it was simply a 2.5-liter engine with only four cylinders.
The Audi R10-18 TDI has undergone many changes over time, but it has always had a memorable engine. Originally, this model was a gasoline engine that had ten cylinders. Now, that’s an incredible amount of power in a single race car.
Each race of cars must be equipped with the best mechanical and electrical parts. The races are there to demonstrate the quality of the car before going to the streets of the city. Race cars also test how well an engine can withstand extreme conditions such as heat, rain and snow.
Race tracks are also the best places for tire manufacturers to test their new products. Rubber must withstand heat and friction for long periods of time and the day of the track is the time to test it.
