DTM in the 90s: Modelling Mercedes-Benz’s active ballast system

Motorsport in the 21st Century: Claytex and the modern motorsport paradigm

To the uninitiated, the Indy 500 seems like a simple event. 200 laps (500 miles) around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2.5 mile long banked oval circuit using single-seater, open wheel IndyCars. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? Well… it isn’t. As with any top level Motorsport, drivers straddle the...
Can An F1 Car Drive On The Ceiling?
I don’t know about you, but I’ve heard “a Formula One car has enough downforce that it can drive upside down on the ceiling” so many times but have never had any proof of this. I, for one, would love to see this put to the test, but I...
