The degree project of Transportation Designer Moritz Martin. The 1 Liter Racing League is a new motorsport concept with a more ecologically oriented approach to racing. Inspired by the insanity of Swamp Buggy, Land Speed Record Races and the Eco Marathon, the 1 Liter Race car challenges the tactical skill of the driver to finish the race using just the energy from one liter of fuel. Inspired by the effortless gliding of skim boards, the driver can lift the wheels and slide over the thin water film of a salt lake or beachside racing ground to save energy. The car features retractable wheels for aerodynamic efficiency at high speed and a rear wheel-mounted air nozzle for frictionless steering during slides. The racetrack is projected onto the drivers head-up display, which allows a more flexible layout and forms a link between real life motorsport and video gaming. Like a game pad, the steering unit is programmable and can operate multi-directional operations at the same time.
