Customer Story: North West 200 Motorcycle Road Race- Fast and Accurate Fuel Testing at the Race

Introduction

The International North West 200 motorcycle road race is Ireland’s largest outdoor sporting event where skill and performance are pushed to the limits. To keep the focus on the riders and the bikes, the North West 200 requires each team to use a race-supplied control fuel. Determination of each team’s fuel compliance must be as fast and accurate as the race itself – so the outcome can be confirmed in real-time.

When it comes to testing, race organizers depend on highly accurate results within 10 minutes of sample collection. With that goal in mind, Euro M-Sport conducted exhaustive research on the available analytical options and instrumentation that would meet the specifications of the NW 200 fuel testing requirements.
