The findings may be useful in optimizing the aerodynamic properties of the
bodywork for future design and fabrication. 1. INTRODUCTION Aerodynamic is
the main factor when designing open-wheel race car. Shape of the vehicle is
often the main factor that contributes to the aerodynamic performance [1]. In order
to get the stability on openwheel race car, aerodynamic drag and aerodynamic lift
needed to be considered during design processes. During high-speed
manoeuvre, ...
