Scuderia Toro Rosso is pleased to welcome TRILUX as a Technology Supplier to the team. TRILUX is a company pioneering lighting technology and is supplying lighting at the team’s Faenza factory and in the pit garages at the race tracks.
This weekend, for the Spanish Grand Prix at the Barcelona circuit, TRILUX has supplied a new high efficiency lighting concept based on LED technology in the Scuderia Toro Rosso pits. The lighting package has the advantages of being light, taking up little space and being easy to assemble, through a “plug and play” system, making it ideal for the Formula 1 environment. The system is also extremely energy efficient, putting out just 95 lm/w, a saving of up to 40% energy compared to conventional fluorescent technology.
The system has further advantages in that the illumination it provides is non-glare and flicker-free, which thus makes it ideal for TV broadcasting and also offers a more pleasant working environment for the crew.
Franz Tost: “Thanks to the foresight of its Chairman, Michael Huber, we are pleased to welcome TRILUX as Technical Supplier to Scuderia Toro Rosso. While the focus of our designers and engineers is always on the car, with TRILUX we now have a Supplier who is helping to make the working environment better and safer for our team at the race tracks. The innovative LED light technology used in our pit garage ensures that the illumination is always at a constant level, while also reducing glare, which can cause fatigue in what is already a high pressure environment. In addition, TRILUX will bring the same quality and standard to the lighting in our Faenza factory.”
