The people who drove the McLaren 600 LT were also able to try out Pirelli Track Adrenaline: a new system that’s made up of an app, control unit, and P Zero Trofeo R tyres equipped with sensors, which will be available in the first few months of 2021.
This system monitors every aspect of tyre performance and displays the resulting telemetry in real time, helping drivers to improve their on-track performances and manage their tyres in the most efficient way. But that’s not all. The app works offline too, by storing all the data gathered while the car was on track: including lap time, minimum and maximum speeds, as well as acceleration and braking. Drivers can additionally examine the lines they have been taking and compare individual lap times sector by sector. This is made possible thanks to the precision of the GPS integrated into the control unit, which faithfully records the car’s every move, acting as each driver’s individual training coach. The P Zero Experience drivers were also able to test the Track Adrenaline system’s adaptability, thanks to the plug and play capability of the control unit directly into their own cars, linked to a smartphone app. This provided useful telemetry without requiring sensors in the tyres. The result is improved performance, thanks to the astonishing detail that is conveyed. It’s a bit like having a virtual race engineer, right in your phone.
Those who missed out this time can still get the opportunity to sample the P Zero Experience for themselves soon: all the latest dates and venues can be found on the following link:
