BREAKING: British Touring Van Championship with Toyota

Hey Guys
Another totally BREAKING NEWS just reached me: Toyota will start a new racing series "for the masses" with the British Touring Van Championship!

True to the motto, "if something has a motor, it can go and race" in the UK, Toyota has now converted to a transporter for racing cars. The PROACE scheduled to start in July in the new British Touring Van Championship. Three private teams have already ordered their racing vans.

With the use of the van as a race car follows the demand for low-cost Toyota Motorsport, which will remain affordable for amateurs. "On the back of the seven square meters PROACE can carry everything you need to use on race day and had his emergency vehicle right there," said Gideon, "Gig" Gleman, the spokesman for the new series. "If something does not fit, it is not important for the race."

How serious is Toyota with the use of PROACE racing vans, should be sharp-eyed observers have noticed on British roads. So the cars practicing for some time in stop-and-go of traffic lights on the A4 west of London eagerly race starts and finish on the M62 24-hour endurance runs. Especially because the long-distance comfort is at truck race of immense importance. Also why are scheduled for later this month detailed test laps on the legendary Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. There are teams at the prestigious trophy trucks compete with chances to win. Also the 24-hour race is being considered.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
