Aerodynamic mapping and optimization of race cars

Wouter Remmerie
Founder
AirShaper
BELGIUM
In this presentation we will cover examples and tools to optimize the aerodynamic performance of race cars. For example: Porsche GT4 20 seconds faster on the Nürbürgring – how aerodynamics can move a car into a different league. Smaller race teams can cut costs by using publicly available 3D models for aerodynamic analysis to analyze and optimize their cars, as well as aero-mapping race cars using simulations. There will also be an explanation of how to use simulations to build aero maps to generate the data needed for car setup per circuit, per race.

Winning formula for running a student team in the Mazda MX5 Cup

Ton Serné
Performance engineer
SernéCM
NETHERLANDS
A team of six students on the Minor Motorsport Engineering course at Fontys University in Eindhoven ran a Mazda MX5 Cup car during the 2019 season in the Benelux. This presentation shows what the team members learned during the season and how they were able to set up the car so that it became a top runner in this highly competitive cup class. The key elements of their success will be highlighted: organization, dedication and motivation, and a thorough focus on technology including tire management, data acquisition, aerodynamics, and excellent maintenance and preparation.

Race engineering – why you are blind if you don't use simulation

Danny Nowlan
Director
ChassisSim Technologies
AUSTRALIA
When running a car it is often tempting to overlook simulation in your rush to get the car out, or when you are trying to race engineer it and the pressure is on. However, the 2019 running of the 24 hours of LeMans is a very striking example of why simulation needs to be at the core of what you do. A case study will be presented that utilized a number of the ChassisSim simulation toolboxes that were used to race engineer an LMP2 car.
