Volkswagen Motorsport India has
partnered with Wheels India Limited to develop India’s fastest touring car the
TC4-A Vento. During initial testing the TC4-A Vento achieved a benchmark lap
time of 1.07.892 at Kari Motor Speedway. Wheels India have designed and developed
this wheel in-house at their forged alloy manufacturing facility in Chennai.
The forged alloy wheels has
the benefit of a stronger structural rigidity with an un-sprung weight benefit
of about 1.5 to 2 kilograms per wheel over a standard cast wheel. This is achieved
as the grain structure of the material for a forged alloy wheel is denser than
a cast alloy wheel which results in better strength and lower weight.
Sirish Vissa, Head of
Volkswagen Motorsport India said, “Our race machines are constantly evolving
and team is always looking for ways to improve the dynamics of our race cars.
The addition of the forged wheel has had a considerable impact on weight
savings and this in turn has been a major performance upgrade. With further
calibration we expect to improve performance in the future.”
The Volkswagen Motorsport team
validated the result achieved on the test bench by running the car on the track
with a wheel instrumented with load measurement and telemetry, so the data can
be logged in real time and in real world conditions. The team achieved an
excellent correlation between real world conditions and the test and simulation
