Gibson Motorsport designed and developed the electronic power steering unit as part of the GH20 project. Due to the ever-increasing aerodynamic loads forcing the tyres into the ground, and the required suspension geometry for the GH20, an electronic power steering unit was needed to make the car driveable at race pace.
When other power steering systems didn’t fulfil our needs, we created our own; a lightweight unit to keep the car as close to the lower weight limit as possible while being durable and easily serviceable. To keep the cockpit clear, we had a bespoke steering rack produced by Titan with double pinion gears, which allows the power steering unit to be mounted on the front nose, keeping the weight forward.
When it came to the circuitry and software, we worked with a local company who are experts in electronics with a portfolio full of big names. Each component on the circuit board is selected for reliability with a bias towards quality over cost. This is reflected in the final product; a precise tool for reducing lap times.
