In 2011 a small group of graduates and PhDs from Politecnico di Torino joined forces to create an innovative engineering firm, building upon their interests and passion for motorsport, cars and applied research on hybrid and electric mobility.
This small group is now Podium Advanced Technologies a fast-growing company which offers a comprehensive set of services in automotive high-performance development, covering conventional, hybrid and full electric powertrains in all facets of international motorsports. We have now three business lines: Automotive Engineering, Motorsport and E-Mobility.
Our project management discipline stems from our initial motorsport culture. Our lean structure allows us to provide our clients with a swift and agile response. No unnecessary burden weighs down our projects master plans, positioning us as one of the most efficient companies in the industry in providing real value to our customers. Our success is the result of different factors. Yet our young, competent and motivated team is one of our greatest strengths. Only graduate people with outstanding academic results and profiles, many of them with a research doctorate, compose our staff.
Professional growth is pursued through regular training programs and rotation of personnel on different assignments, including motorsport hands-on experience. In addition, more senior resources in our team are able to advise and help shape up the sustainability of business cases underlying any given project.
We have a proven track record of success in a variety of fields, ranging from motorsport to hypercar design and engineering. We won our first ever event when we engineered the hybrid version of 2012 Nurburgring 24 Hours class winner SCG P4/5 Competizione. We then accrued more experience designing and building road and racing prototypes, both conventional and fully electric. We have been the technical driving force behind the SCG003C project. The vehicle has been engineered around the specific targets required to compete successfully at the Nürburgring 24 Hour race, resulting in two successful seasons in 2015 and 2016 Nürburgring VLN championship, and culminating in an overall pole position at the 2017 ADAC 24 Hours and an 8th place overall in the 2018 ADAC 24 Hours.
Then, we have been selected as Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus sole partner for the design, development and build of their brand new WEC Hypercar. The new top class recently established by FIA and ACO in endurance racing will debut in the 2020-2021 FIA World Endurance Championship season, culminating in the 2021 Le Mans 24 Hours.
There have been many of our works on display at the last editions of various International Motor Shows. We can rely upon a wealth of proprietary intellectual capital, as well as on an unrivalled mastery of any leading edge or emerging technology in our fields of application.
In 2013 we have developed our own Battery Management System, that has been customized to very diverse high capacity / high power applications to date.
In 2016 we have developed and engineered our Torque Vectoring system for a fully electric supercar.
