The objective of this proposal concerns the application of composites in a durable, light-weight chassis structure resistant to multiple impact and crash. The chassis will be the basis of a new type of indoor kart, which will be developed. Higher safety for the driver is obtained through weight reduction, crash absorption systems and ergonomical improvements. Research is required to characterise materials and to establish an optimal production process. Other applications for safe and durable chassis structures subjected to multiple impact will be searched for.
