Banking On The Turn

Design Speed Equation

Equation of Maximum Velocity (V max ) 2 = [(sin + s cos ) / (cos - s sin )]gr is equal to the degree of banking of the particular turn s is the coefficient of static friction between the track and the tires g is acceleration due to gravity r is the radius of the particular turn

Derivation of Maximum Velocity Equation

Darlington Raceway 1.366-Mile Egg-shaped Oval Turns 1 & 2 Banking: 25° Width: 79 Ft Radius: 600 Ft Turns 3 & 4 Banking: 23° Width: 62 Ft Radius: 525 Ft Backstretch Length: 1,229 Ft Width: 90 Ft Banking: 2° Frontstretch Length: 1,229 Ft Width: 90 Ft Banking: 3° Qualifying Record: 173.797 mph

Finding the Coefficient of Static Friction

Talladega Superspeedway 2.66-Mile Trioval 48 Ft wide 33° 18° Turns Length: 3,750 Ft Radius: 1,100 Ft 4,000 Ft Frontstretch Chute: 2,150 Ft Total: 4,300 Ft 2003 Pole Speed: 189.943 mph

Talladega Super Speedway Turns are banked 33 degrees Radius of turns is 1100 feet

Daytona International Speedway 2.5-Mile Trioval 40 Ft wide 31° 18° 3,000 Ft. Turns Length: 3,000 Ft Radius: 1,000 Ft Frontstretch Chute: 1,900 Ft Total: 3,800 Ft 2003 Pole Speed: 184.752 mph

Daytona Super Speedway 31 degree banking in turns Turns have 1000 foot radius

Bristol Motor Speedway.533-Mile Concrete Oval 40 Ft Wide Turns- 36° Straightaways Length: 650 Ft Banking: 16°

Bristol Motor Speedway Corners are banked at 36 degrees Radius is 241 feet

Lowes Motor Speedway 1.5-Mile Quad-oval Turns Banking: 24° Frontstretch: 1,952 Ft Banking: 5° Backstretch: 1,360 Ft Banking: 5° Qualifying Record: 186.657 mph
