For each discipline and category of vehicle, a minimum weight is set by the bodies governing motor sport. Teams and preparers must comply with these regulations while optimizing vehicle performance and ensuring driver safety. The measurement of wheel weight and mass distribution is carried out with weighing equipment specially designed for motor racing, such as integrated scales and mobile off-ground scales without wires or wires. Weighing systems for motor sport must meet requirements for accuracy and reliability. Car weighing is a crucial step in any competition, it is important to use equipment of high performance and quality.

The built-in wheel weigher also called integrated scale is an essential element for all competitions. It is used to ensure that all vehicles participating in a race meet the specified weight limits. The scale integrated into the control platform, also known as the weighing bench, is usually located in the pit area. It is a large platform perfectly horizontal equipped with lasers, so as to measure perfectly the main dimensions of the car as well as its weight. The balance data is then transmitted to the race officials, who check that each vehicle meets the required regulatory requirements. Drivers are also weighed in order to deduct their weight from that of the car during the checks carried out during the qualifying tests. The integrated scale plays an essential role in ensuring equity between pilots.
