A road simulation system based on a suction slot has been developed at the
Langley Full-Scale Tunnel to support aerodynamic testing of race cars.
Performance evaluations compare favorably with existing facilities in terms of
floor boundary layer thickness and vehicle aerodynamic forces. It has been
shown, that in the case of a NASCAR ... Katz, J., "New Directions in Race Car

Design. of. the. Tyre-Suspension. System. of. a. Racing. Car. A racing car should
be designed to improve the performance of the driver– vehicle system.
Unfortunately, at present no readily exploitable driver models seem to be
available. So the optimisation of a racing car refers mainly to the car itself.
Contemporary tuning of both tyre characteristics and suspesnion system is of
crucial importance. One of the main technical challenges is to achieve maximum
cornering speed while ...

The paper discusses use of negative lift devices placed either over the rear axles
of racing cars or near the frontal axle. The choice of aerofoil design and analysis
of the positioning of such wings and their aerodynamic interference with the car
shape is considered. The paper discussed the angle of attack of these devices,
as related to the racing circuit programme. Analysis of the effect of negative lift
devices on acceleration and maximum speed performance of racing cars at
different ...

The aerodynamic design would have been better for a high speed race, where
the skies were clear, the traffic was lighter, and a more powerful array was
available. V. STRUCTURE V.A. Structural Design A goal of the design was for the
vehicle to be lightweight and stiff, but both of these requirements must be
compatible with the desired aerodynamic shape. Following the example of
modern high- performance aircraft, the team chose to use a monocoque
