Thus convertible frames are preferred for stock car racing classes which require a
rail frame. AERODYNAMICS The handling of a car can be greatly affected by
body aerodynamics. This has a small effect at legal road speeds and becomes
increasingly important at higher speeds. It should be noted that high head winds
and cross winds encountered during highway driving can be quite similar to
those encountered at racing speeds. On racing cars aerodynamics is a major
factor in ...

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 ...

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, ...
