Racing is both the catalyst and platform for cutting-edge innovation in the automobile space. In its early days, racing provided an exciting testing ground for the industry’s newest prototypes. Today, that same pioneering spirit lives on, forging new paths in sustainability, precision and efficiency. Through our collaborations with Jaguar TCS Racing on the Formula E circuit and NASCAR’s Richard Childress Racing, Dow is using the power of materials science to advance the mobility industry.
Last season was record-breaking on the racetrack – and for our partnership too! As the Jaguar TCS Racing team speeds into Season 9 with the brand new Jaguar I-TYPE-6 electric racecar, see how our MobilityScience™ solutions are playing a part in its cutting-edge design & performance.
The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is a groundbreaking single-seater motorsport competition that uses only electric cars. Alongside our partners at Jaguar TCS Racing, we are accelerating material development in real time through our MobilityScience™ platform, introducing a wide range of polyolefin, polyurethane, acrylic, specialty chemical and silicone technologies that advance safety, comfort, range and low carbon solutions for automobiles on the track and off.
Our partnership with the No. 3 Dow Chevrolet team goes far beyond the racetrack. We collaborate with Richard Childress Racing (RCR) to bring science and innovation to the mobility industry using the most extreme testing lab available: the racetrack. Together, our scientists at the Materials Engineering Center and RCR engineers develop automotive solutions leveraging our MobilityScience™ technologies that make the No. 3 Dow Chevrolet faster, more tuned and precise.
Performance of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 racecar is driven at the microscopic level. And its these microscopic changes over time that will accelerate the electrification of vehicles and a lower-carbon future for mobility. Learn more about why we’re so excited about our collaboration with Jaguar TCS Racing.
You have to get everything right if you want to win in this sport. And that’s where we come in. Hear first-hand from Austin Dillon and the team at RCR how our deep understanding of materials science is providing the edge needed to cross the finish line faster, stronger, and first.
