Welcome to the remainder of the Race Car Aero Course.
About this course:
This course is designed to give you a solid grounding in Race Car Aerodynamics. After taking this course you should be well versed in:
- how aerodynamics affects a racecar
- how it can make it faster around the track
- what features you can implement on your own vehicles
- how to tune an existing racecars features
- the tools used to design a racecar
We are available if you have any questions during the course. Just email us.

Wings and Endplates
How Single and Multi Element wings work, why endplates are needed on a racecar and the different wing mounting types that can be used.
Splitters and Front End Package
Why a front splitter is crucial to getting the right balance on your racecar and how it works as a part of the front end package.
Canards and Sideskirts
Not the most efficient item, but they do have their place. Generate masses of front downforce with these simple devices.
These act like large vortex generators and generate additional front downforce in the underfloor.
Add momentum to the boundary layer to delay separation, or create large scale vortices to put the flow where you want it for maximum effect.
Overview of bodywork details that should not be overlooked. Tips and tricks for minimising drag.
Drag reduction techniques
Key things to note to reduce the drag of your vehicle, plus some interesting methods that are used in various applications.
How wind tunnels work and why they are so heavily used in the higher levels of motorsport.
Formulas for Race Engineers
Commonly used formulas
Math functions that you can use in your data analysis software or simulation packages.
How aeromaps are derived and how they are used to understand a vehicles performance over a range of conditions.
Often overlooked, how to determine if a new component is actually better than what you already have available to you in your settings.
