Abstract:

Discover the secrets of crash testing, how manufacturers and professional testers enhance car safety, and what a modern racing driver wears to work. Driver-friendly innovations featured in this program include: rigorous procedures used to test the safety of the Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster; the painstaking work of the Thatcham Car Test Center in Great Britain, focusing on everything from brake effectiveness to seat shape; and pioneering full-body protection, such as computer-designed helmets and three-layer fire-retardant Nomex suits, considered standard equipment by today's racers. The importance of anti-theft car security is also explored by the Thatcham researchers.
