Sentronics is celebrating a successful start to the 2018 season, following the implementation of its FlowSonic fuel flow sensor to the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship.
The recent Rolex 24 at Daytona, the season opener and flagship event of the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship, saw the FlowSonic fuel flow sensor adopted by IMSA to ‘enhance its performance data monitoring and balance of performance process’. As a result, the sensor was run by every class in the 56th edition of America’s endurance classic.
“The addition of the Sentronics fuel flow sensors has given IMSA a much better understanding of the actual fuel used by all our competitors in all our classes,” said Geoff Carter, IMSA senior director, Technical Regulations and Compliance. “The sensor data will prove beneficial in developing our balance of performance in the future.”
Sentronics managing director Neville Meech added, “We are pleased to be working alongside IMSA with our advanced sensor technology. The feedback we’ve had from the Rolex 24 indicates the FlowSonic is already generating very useful data for both IMSA and the teams. All credit to IMSA for their vision in bringing fuel flow measurement to bear on the challenge of fairer, simpler, and more cost-effective performance balancing.”
