Promotional Information

"The book is extremely useful and will benefit students across all levels. Examples and calculations are very clear and show all the relevant stages, and the book is written in a very user-friendly way." - Steve Hill, Programme Leader for Motorsport Engineering, University of Derby, UK "This book will be of value to engineering students studying motorsport, undertaking a motorsport design project or participating in Formula Student or Formula SAE. The style of writing is accessible and the book offers a balance between the practical and theoretical aspects of the discipline." - Clive Temple, Programme Director of MSc Advanced Motorsport Engineering, Cranfield University, UK "This is a first rate book covering all the basics of a race car design, even the tires. I highly recommend it as the first book you read if you are in engineer with no background in auto design. It would serve well as a textbook for an undergraduate engineering course in race car design." - Amazon reviewer - 5 stars "As a retired member of the SAE and a motor sports engineer I loved this book ...at 73 there's always more to learn from others. I wish this text was used by all physics professors." Amazon reviewer - 5 stars
