Quantum levitation is not yet a reality for the race car industry. The design concept would change the world of race cars in a way that computer revolutionized the way businesses and people gather and store data.
The Levitating Race Car is in development, and the design has the chance to be a once-in-a-lifetime type of achievement.
Quantum levitation would remove all rolling resistance that causes drag on the wheels and allow for unseen agility on the track. Weather issues would be a thing of the past, and drivers would need to learn a whole new race car as we know it.
The thought of the levitating race car isn’t so far-fetched.
Quantum Motor Racing (QMR) has designed a concept of a race car that uses quantum levitation, and it’s stunning. The race car has an odd shaped body with four distinct “wheels,” or appendages really, which power the unit. The middle is where the driver would take helm of the car.
Small scale construction provides a balance of superconductors and magnets that allows for levitation. Precision temperature adjustments are needed, too, to provide the levitation needed to propel the racecar.
Aerodynamic in design, the levitating car could cut through the air effortlessly without hindrance from ground friction.
Propulsion of the race car has not been determined, but it’s easy to imagine a stream of fire propelling the car from the back of the unit to allow it to cut through the air in the same way a jet does.
Magnets inside of the vehicle keep it on the track, but the strict movement would pose concern when trying to pass an opponent on the final corner of a track. Superconductors would, hypothetically, use quantum energy to propel the unit forward.
The design is unique, and NASCAR fans would have a difficult time getting accustomed to the non-traditional look, but the design does point to a possible quantum levitation race car being viable.
