Vehicle Performance Systems - The Synergy of Integration

Why we are different?

Vehicle Performance Systems have a wealth of experience across a broad range of automotive disciplines. We understand that you only get a truly complete race car with a fully integrated set of control systems and hardware through engine, chassis and powertrain components. With over 20 years experience in top level motorsport we understand what it takes to produce a competetive, reliable and integrated performance package and how to optimise vehicle systems to provide ultimate performance coupled with cost effectiveness and user friendly functionality, whatever the vehicle.

Services

You name it and we can provide it. Specialising in providing solutions for late model F1 or single seater race cars which require advanced control systems to replicate those used originally, together with current LMP1 sportscars complying to the 2014 energy use regulations, LMP2 sportscars, GT and advanced touring cars and bikes, in fact any form of project can be undertaken from the road to the track. With an experienced staff, you can be sure we will get the job done, and done right. From design and manufacture of electrical wiring to engine and mechanical design and manufacturing capability, engine development and dyno testing, design and compilation of bespoke or off the shelf engine management software, vehicle control, data acquisition and paddle-shift systems, through to the completion and setup of the finished vehicle. We provide all solutions under one roof for an unrivalled total integration package you will find nowhere else. No more need to source a multitude of unconnected systems that then have to be made to work with each other which, at best provides an expensive and only partially working package, we provide a complete and seamless integration of the entire vehicle, with all systems working in harmony, optimised for the particular vehicle and discipline.

As authorised System Integrators for the new MoTeC Build Firmware for the M1 range of management systems we can custom design a control strategy to suit any engine and vehicle configuration from the very basic to beyond F1 complexity.

With the advent of new 'Energy Saving' formula in LMP1 for 2014 this places a huge onus on the control strategies in the engine and vehicle management systems. We are already working on projects for this new set of regulations, and would be happy to speak to anyone requiring assistance in this area for the 2014 season.

We also offer a worldwide on track engineering service for race and rally, four wheels or two and a complete build service for high performance engines, gearboxes or complete vehicles.

In addition we can provide Vehicle Track Engineering, Engine Dyno or Rolling Road Tuning, Engine Management System tutorials, gearshift or data logging systems setup and tuning, or any trackside engineering support.
