Race Car Design

Race Car Design is actually one step ahead for those students who are having basic knowledge of an Automobile and having desire for next level training over Race machines. With this program participants will get aware of several secret facts & figures regarding engineering of Race vehicle which are very rare and generally students can’t manage to learn. Mentors will have technically wide knowledge with Race Circuit experience to make this program really successful for participants.


Can access computer system and make use of internet to perform search over Google.


Need to Prepare?

Basic knowledge of mechanical system and automobile engineering would be appreciated.


Tools Expected:-

Windows OS based PC, Smart phone with Internet, Notebook and Pen


Tools Used (for the session):-

Software for designing, Digital toolkit of PPTs , Study material for all participants



Race Car Dynamics, Aerodynamics Industrial Applications, Moto GP vs F1 Machines, Part Design, Cylinder Capacity, Engine Power



The workshop covers facts & Figures related to Race Vehicles, Aerodynamics and Vehicle dynamics. The mentors will have a rich working experience with IC engines, high Speed engines and race circuits to impart best of the knowledge to the participants.
