Cup Race Technology - Volume 10

March 2019

Although stock-appearing, running oval tracks at 200 mph the Cup car generates huge aerodynamic forces. Under the skin the Cup car is purpose-designed for racing albeit around some mandatory components that are strangely archaic. It all adds up to a fascinating engineering challenge. Published annually, Cup Race Technology explains in depth how some of the finest minds in motorsport rise to this fascinating and unique challenge.

  • Insight: SIMULATION AND MODELLING OF A DIRT LATE MODEL - As DLM racers start to look in depth at simulating their cars’ behavior, Lawrence Butcher reports on the development of a full-vehicle model 
  • Digest: ACME RACING SUPER MODIFIED - In a series with refreshingly few rules, Super Modifieds can feature some extreme innovations. Lawrence Butcher reports on how this one was developed 
  • Appendix - What are the differences between the three classes of NASCAR, and at which tracks do they race? We explain
