Additional advantages of aerodynamic downforce prevail, even during
acceleration and braking because of the increased vertical force on the tires and
due to the corresponding increase in maximum tire adhesion. This can result in
shorter braking distances and faster exits from turns. Based on numerical
simulations, Fig. 7.10 shows the reduction in lap times of a prototype racecar,
around a closed loop road circuit (Portland, Oregon). Note that the fastest lap
requires a lift coefficient of ...

Winning Chassis Design and Setup for Circle Track and Road Race Cars Bob
Bolles. A blunt front end will not help air to get up and over the hood area of the
car. It will jam up the air at the front to create a pressure front, or bow wave, as it is
referred to. Shape Matters—What you felt was aerodynamic drag. Drag is caused
by the shape and size of the car and the shape of its components. A “rocket” is an
efficient aerodynamic shape and causes less aerodynamic drag, so it is easier to

The findings may be useful in optimizing the aerodynamic properties of the
bodywork for future design and fabrication. 1. INTRODUCTION Aerodynamic is
the main factor when designing open-wheel race car. Shape of the vehicle is
often the main factor that contributes to the aerodynamic performance [1]. In order
to get the stability on openwheel race car, aerodynamic drag and aerodynamic lift
needed to be considered during design processes. During high-speed
manoeuvre, ...
