ATL Racing Fuel Cells at Professional Motorsport World Expo 2012

ATL to Display Cut-Away F1 Fuel Cell

It is well known that ATL has supplied fuel cells to every Formula 1 team for almost 20 years – yet rarely are these cells ever seen by anyone outside of ATL or the F1 teams themselves.

Earlier this year, Sauber F1 Team published a fascinating video showing a cutaway version of one of its cars. With the monocoque cut in half, the complex baffle and plumbing features contained within an F1 fuel cell were clear to see for the first time.

In response to the phenomenal interest that this video generated, ATL has manufactured a cut-away example of a Formula 1 fuel cell – this will be on display on the ATL stand (2062) at PMWX, Cologne from 13-15 November.

ATL to Display Low-Cost Saver Cells

ATL may supply every F1 team, but it is also proud supporter of grassroots motorsport – the recently announced ATL Racing Fuel Cells Ginetta Junior Winter Series will offer young drivers (aged 14-17 years) the opportunity to compete in a low-cost racing package, amongst a hugely competitive field of drivers.

The Ginetta G40 Junior car is built to a high standard and has an outstanding safety record, due in part to the fitment of an ATL Saver Cell:

ATL Saver Cells are FIA FT3-1999 approved and available in standard capacities of 20 to 170 litres. They are low-cost, easy to maintain, and ATL offers a range of internal collector systems and coverplates which allow the cells to be easily upgraded. All-in-all, Saver Cells are perfectly suited to the budget racer.

ATL will have examples of its saver cells on display at PMWX in Cologne and its Technical Sales Engineers will be on-hand to advise visitors of different plumbing arrangements that ATL can offer.
