The aerodynamics have become an essential part of motor sport.
This is why we present you this interesting topic today!

The aerodynamics aim to describe the behavior of the air and optimise downforce for our purpose. By achieving more downforce, higher cornering speeds can be realised.
Therefore, we use wing elements that generate downforce and direct the airflow of the car.
In order not to disturb the cornering behavior of the car, we must ensure that all parts are properly dimensioned, so that a balance of aerodynamics can be achieved at any velocity. The balance of front-to-rear-axle is crucial for the achievable laptimes. Through skillful design of the aerodynamic parts, the vehicle can be easily and accurately controlled through our curvy tracks. The so-called center of pressure (CofP), which depicts the ratio of aerodynamic forces and the resulting torques of front and rear wing and the undertray, is typically located near the car's center of mass and determines the way, in which the car's cornering behavior is influenced.

In order not to create too much drag on long straights, it is useful to implement systems like the "Drag Reduction System" (DRS), which can drastically reduce the car's drag by selective movement of individual wing elements.

Our way to success are CFD simulations, which we are working on day and night!

After the first drive of our H14, we aim to validate our simulations in order to determine and increase their accuracy.
For this purpose, we will amongst other things use Kiel probes, that we can use to measure dynamic pressure in the most different places.

HAWKS Racing e.V. added 2 new photos.

Since yesterday we present our latest race car Nyala at the SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg together with our sponsor WSCAD. We have already had very interesting conversations and we are looking forward to two more exciting days. Thank you for this opportunity!

We are in Hall 6, booth 6-328 daily from 9am till 6pm. We are happy about every visit.

Special thanks also goes to our friends of Strohm + Söhne e.V., which, as always, have received us very warmly and provide an accommodation.
