Scales and Car Racing

Industry News - 02/18/2015

Another arena where the importance of scales is not realized by the majority of those enjoying the sport is car racing ! while Formula 1 drivers are looking for lightweight and a minimum weight requirement of 1415 lb. (642 kg.), NASCAR has it's own regulations putting the overall weight is sitting at 3450 lb. (1565 kg.) the Gen 6 cars have actually been trimmed by 160 lb; specifically 100 lb on the right and 60 lb on the left. Minimum driver weight has also been reduced to 180 lb from 200 lb. 

Scales referred to as racing scales, wheel weighers, portable scales, or weight distribution scales are used widely in the racing industry. There are various, yet similar models on the market today including Intercomp and CAS 

Tony Stewart Flagged for "Weighty" Issue

Industry News - 02/18/2015

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Tony Stewart opened Speedweeks with a weighty - and heated - issue.

Stewart was visibly upset Friday as he stormed through the garage after getting black flagged for failing to step on a scale before getting behind the wheel.

Stewart was one of 25 drivers practicing for Saturday night's exhibition Sprint Unlimited, but one of just three who didn't weigh in before the session started. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch also had to return to the scale after getting in their cars.

Stewart didn't heed the initial call.

NASCAR eventually flagged Stewart, ordering him back to the garage to get weighed. But he refused, and when he did finally park his car after his practice run ended, Stewart and crew chief Chad Johnston were called to the NASCAR hauler for what likely was a stern lecture about following the rules.

They emerged 10 minutes later, and Stewart headed straight for the scale.

Weight & Formula 1 racing

Industry News - 02/18/2015

The modern day Formula One cars are constructed from composites of carbon fibre and similar ultra-lightweight materials. The minimum weight permissible is 642 kg (1,415 lb) including the driver but not fuel. Cars are weighed with dry-weather tyres fitted.[2] Prior to the 2014 F1 season, cars often weighed in under this limit so teams added ballast in order to add weight to the car. The advantage of using ballast is that it can be placed anywhere in the car to provide ideal weight distribution. This can help lower the car's centre of gravity to improve stability and also allows the team to fine tune the weight distribution of the car to suit individual circuits. 

Professional race cars are almost completely handmade using lightweight materials designed for maximum efficiency. The frame is made from a steel tubing, and the body is constructed in lightweight sheet metal, all surrounding a bare block engine. Lightweight construction combined with aerodynamic design combine to generate downforce, which allows the race car to go through tight turns quickly with as little resistance as possible.
