Introducing the AutoMoto Straight 8

Introducing the AutoMoto Straight 8

When it comes to rally driving, every second counts. The stages may be miles long, but mere seconds can make the difference. The ability to see clearly and to navigate though rough terrain is crucial for drivers, and that's where we come in. Over the years, LED lights have become a common sight on road and race cars. LED's have really revolutionized the industry, providing brighter lights, more efficient power usage, and more durable solutions.

In this blog post, we will explore the development of our exciting new automotive light, designed with off-road and on-road racing in mind.

Why LED Lights?

LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes, have become to go to for lighting technology if you're looking for high output. They offer several advantages over traditional lighting options like halogen or incandescent bulbs. They are highly energy-efficient, consuming significantly less power while producing brighter illumination. LED lights also have a longer lifespan, making them ideal for the demanding conditions of rally car racing.

The Birth of the Rally Car LED Light

The development of LED lighting for rally cars started with the need for improved visibility during night stages. Traditional lighting options fell short in providing the necessary brightness and durability. Rally car manufacturers and lighting experts collaborated to create a lighting solution that could withstand the extreme vibrations, shocks, and temperature fluctuations experienced during races.

Advancements in LED Technology

As LED technology advanced, rally car lighting systems became more sophisticated. The introduction of high-intensity LEDs allowed for even brighter illumination, ensuring drivers could see further ahead and react quickly to any obstacles. Additionally, the compact size of LEDs made it possible to integrate them into various parts of the rally car, including the front bumper, roof rack, and interior.

The Introduction of AutoMoto

At Exposure, we've been building and developing LED lighting technology for the past 20 years. We've gained our knowledge from working within the cycling industry, but cycling is just one of our passions. Whether it's got 2 wheels or 4, and engine or pedals, we just enjoy competing and going fast.

Two decades if experience in making LED lights has allowed us to create the AutoMoto Straight 8 light. It's a sleek compact design but really packs a punch with a max output of over 9000 Lumen and weighing only 450g. The CNC machined 6063 aluminium body is designed to optimize cooling, the design is so efficient that once the vehicle is moving over 15 MPH the air travelling over the product is capable of keeping it cool enough to run at full brightness continuously.

It features clever technology that dims the light when the vehicle they're attached to isn't moving. This helps to keep the lights cool when air isn't moving over them.
