HOW FAST IS YOUR REACTION TIME?
Is your reaction speed as fast as an F1 driver? Can you beat your friends and classmates? An important part of Racing Formula Ethara and F1 in Schools program is having a quick reaction time. During the racing, there's a 20-meter racetrack with special start and finish gate timing equipment. When each racer is ready, there's a countdown with 5 red lights. The racers need to press a button once the 5 lights go out and the timing gate says ‘Go’. If a racer presses too early, they will get a false start.
Why not test your own reaction time with our free reaction challenge below.
- Once you're ready to being, click reset
- Wait for the lights to go out
- Press space bar as soon as ‘Go!’ appears and see how fast your reaction time is
