Pit stop is so important for Formula race.
Super Formula 2015 season will start this weekend at legendary Suzuka circuit.
This time I introduce inside of Super Formula! Vol.1 is pit stop-work.
In Super Formula’s regulation, Allow 6 crew and 1 crew must handle fire fighting. So other 5 crew do Jack-up/down, Tire change, Fuel, Lollipop man.
If need full service (4 tire change, fuel), It is necessary to do all with a small number of people.
First check this video. Pit stop work from onboard of Koudai Tsukakoshi(hp Real Racing).
3 crew do tire change. 3 of 2 crew do jack-up and down. 1 crew jumping SF14’s nose! We called it ”Ninja” or ”Dynamic pit stop”. It is used in Super Formula/ Formula Nippon long time.
Success of pit crew will affect the performance of the race. I want you to pay attention to the pits!
