Race Car Aerodynamics

AN UNDERSTANDING OF AERODYNAMICS INCORPORATED IN RACE CARS

.

This may be the most important Aero course ever offered. There is information contained in this Course that cannot be learned anywhere else.

Free and Easy Preview - You can preview the Lesson One in the Aero course by Signing In to ORS. Then scroll down and click on Lesson One to read the entire Lesson One.

This course is designed to give the racer or car enthusiast an understanding of aerodynamics as it pertains to a race car. This course discusses the differences between actual air flow while driving / racing versus air flow within a wind tunnel, and how these flows are different.

It discusses how to find those flows, and determine if they need to be improved. It discusses ways to improve the aero on your car.

It explains and discusses aero terminology, and provides some formulas used in determining aerodynamic forces. The course will teach you how to read how the air flows over your car, and will give you a good understanding of how to improve those flows.You will come to understand what happens to those flows at different attitudes.

The course contains sections on dirt and asphalt late models Cup cars, Sprint cars, IRL, Formula 1, Funny cars, and Top Fuel cars.

I think everyone will find something in this course to improve the aerodynamics of their race car, even if they don’t use a wind tunnel.The race track is a better place to test the real aerodynamic flow.You will know how to find the actual air flow through this course.You will know though tests you make, if your modifications worked or not.You will know what is working more than just a lap time change.

About Bill Montagne

Bill is a Sr. Aerodynamicist and Mechanical Engineer who originally worked in Silicon Valley creating devices, technologies and manufacturing processes that had never been done before anywhere.He has been involved in every aspect of engine development, chassis development and aerodynamics development in the racing industry as a professional racer, mechanic, builder, engineer and consultant.

He has Working relationship with several top level PhD. Aeronautical engineers at NASA Ames and NASA Lewis facilities since early 1980’s and he has developed, designed, constructed, tested and flown his own design of aircraft that broke numerous records for efficiency of flight, new wing design and new propeller design.

That aircraft is the Mountain Goat. The result was an award winning, high lift, low drag aerodynamic aircraft flown for over 3,000 hrs flight time.It has been flight tested by NASA AMES, Gulfstream Chief Flight Test Engineer and several FAA DER’s.

Bills approach to aerodynamics is from a real world perspective. Many aero engineers who design wings, body shapes, etc. never fly those designs. Bill has flown and tested his own aircraft with great success. His aero skills include:

● Aeronautical Engineering for optimal flight characteristics

● Aero analysis and development of high efficiency, low noise propellers

● Aero testing with actual full size aircraft

● Aero flow optimization for high lift and low drag

Now, in the Race Car Aerodynamics school, we are introduced to Bill’s extensive knowledge of race car aero to bring a better understanding of aero properties and to better apply those properties to improve our race cars performance. You’ll never look at aero in the same way again.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is Race Car Technology Level One All About?
This course explains and defines all of the chassis systems associated with a race car. These systems are unique to true race cars while being common in many cases between different classes and forms of racing. The information is carefully presented so that anyone can understand it.
What Can I Expect To Get Out of RCT Level One?
The end goal for anyone who seeks further knowledge of race car technology is to help make a race car faster. The course will teach you how professionals build and setup their cars to win races and championships. Even if you have never raced or will race, the information presented here will teach you how those who do race accomplish their success. For those who race or will be a part of a race tream, RCT Level One will help you get better and reach your goal of winning races.
Who Is RCT Level One For?
The course is useful for anyone who is either already involved with racing or anyone who is interested to know more about how race cars are constructed and setup. If you have any interest in motorsports, desire to one day be a part of a race car team, or are now working with a team in some capacity, this course is necessary and beneficial.
Is RCT Level One Overly Technical?
We designed and wrote this course to be easy to understand and to follow along with the instructor. We know that some of you might not have any previous knowledge of race car technology, and so we wrote RCT Level One to help you get the information without getting too technical. The more technical presentations will be presented in the future RCT courses you should enroll in once you complete RCT Level One. By that time you will be ready to absorb a more technical presentation.
Can I Skip RCT Level One and Go Directly To Levels One or Two?
We highly recommend that everyone, no matter how much previous knowledge you have, take and understand the material in this course. The reason is, the future RCT courses build on the information presented here and without taking this course, some of the material presented in future RCT courses will be harder to understand.
Can I Earn My Very Own RCT Diploma
Once you have successfully completed the three Levels of the Race Car Technologyh course and passed the exams, you will receive a Certificate of Completion suitable for framing. This provides you with proof positive of having taken and retained important information about race car technology that you can show to others, including potential employers, fellow race team members and family.
