Why is it important?

The aerodynamic development and test process for both road and motorsport cars have evolved significantly in the past two decades. This Journal paper outlines all the major developments during this period and potential future improvements to the development and testing process.


This is a paper that both Victor and I have been intending to write for some time and hopefully helps to bring some clarity to the complicated aerodynamic development and test process. It is significantly helped with Robbin's figures.
