Bobsleigh start track
Engineers from the Department of Engineering and Applied Science have
redesigned the braking system on the Bobsleigh start track at the University
of Bath. Nick Gathercole
from SMS Consultants has
collaborated closely with Mike
Callan and staff from the Department of Sports and Reaction on this
exciting and innovative project.
The track is used by the GB Olympic Bobsleigh Team and Kristan
Bromley, the first British man to win a winter sport World Cup series
when he took the Skeleton title in Germany in February 2004. Kristan
is a Research Officer in the Department.
