- Cougar Data Recording system developed for SPEED EuroSeries
- Independent system not influenced by car ECU
- Tested and certified by Mugen
- Installation loom mandatory for all cars in 2013 series
2013 SPEED EuroSeries competitors will all run the Cougar Data Recording system as developed in a season long trial by the SPEED organisers and which has been successfully proven in recent tests at engine specialist, Mugen, on the Company’s transient dyno.
Mandated in the latest SPEED regulations, the Cougar Data Recording system will provide scrutineers with an accurate engine rev monitoring data feed with which the series 8,200 rpm maximum rev limit can be policed. The system, which is completely independent of the vehicle’s electronic and has its own power supply, features a lightweight recording box and has its own installation loom which has been designed to eradicate any interference from outside systems.
Hiro Toyoda, Vice President of Mugen Euro CO. Ltd says: “MUGEN is delighted to maintain the on-going technical collaboration with SPEED EuroSeries as official Technical Partner. The Series’ introduction of a sealed, separate engine rpm monitoring system to aid scrutineering checks has been supported by MUGEN EURO in the UK via thorough testing of the device fitted to a HONDA K20-based CN engine of the type universally used in SPEED. This evaluation been carried out on MUGEN EURO’s sophisticated transient engine dyno and has satisfied the criteria which SPEED set out. We are happy to continue the technical support which we have provided from its beginning to the Series, which is officially supported by HONDA Motor Europe, and look forward to seeing SPEED grow further in 2013 as it surely deserves to do.”
Oli McCrudden, SPEED EuroSeries organiser: “The guys at Cougar have worked hard to develop a closed system of hardware and software which meets all our requirements and the Mugen certification gives chassis manufacturers, teams and drivers the confidence that SPEED operates a level playing field on which to compete. I’d like to thank both Cougar and Mugen for their excellent support for the series and their valuable contribution towards its sustained growth.”
The installation loom will be available to purchase through SPEED. The loggers will be issued by SPEED Officials at each event and competitors will return the loggers to the organisers at the end of the meeting. Cougar Data Recording representatives will be in attendance at every round to monitor the results and aid the official MSA scrutineer working on the SPEED EuroSeries in 2013.
