LED Lighting Benefits For Motorsports

- Sep 20, 2019-

These and other auto racing venues will realize multiple benefits from LED lighting. From an operating cost perspective, LED racetrack lighting will generate better and more uniform illumination than standard high pressure sodium systems at less than half the cost. LED fixtures have an average lifespan of more than five years and in some cases can continue to generate light with no degradation for more than 100,000 hours. Night auto racing under LED lights will also open a racetrack to more viewers, as racing fans who work during daylight hours would have an opportunity to attend live racing events in the evening. More fans in seats means more revenue to the racetrack’s owners.

Television and other live broadcasts of auto races will also see a likely expansion with LED racetrack lighting. Traditional outdoor lighting limits the quality of modern high definition broadcasts. LED lighting renders colors more accurately that captures high speed motion without distracting flashes or flickering during a broadcast. Motor sports fans will have more opportunities to see quality broadcasts of nighttime races on tracks that use LED lighting systems.
