RACE CAR DESIGN / INNOVATORS & ENGINEERS

Race car design is controlled by rules that ensure safety and reduce the potential of an “unfair” competitive advantage. However, there are always innovators and engineers that challenge the rules and push the boundaries with new ideas.  Some work. Some are banned by working too well. Some never even make it to track. The presentation will show how these innovators and engineers influence auto racing.
