seminar 'HANDLING OF RACING CARS'

YOUR QUICKEST WAY TO FASTER LAPTIMES !!

* Also available as German spoken seminars and Nederlands gesproken seminars.

Oversteer? Understeer? 
Thanks to our seminar you will learn how to analyse this problem, and hence also to solve it quickly!
Why should you spend lots of time and money on your engine any longer, just to gain some tenths of a second, while you can gain full seconds with a well adjusted handling!? This seminar is your quickest route to faster laptimes.

In the seminar Handling of Racingcars you will learn the dynamics and most important adjustments of the suspension system of a racingcar in just two halfdays or evenings. Lots of real-life examples will be based on data generated with a MoTeC Data Acquisition System.

This seminar is meant for:
- Drivers:  learn to understand the handling of your car better.
- Engineers/mechanics: better understanding of the theoretical fundament and insight in the  consequences of the adjustments.
- Teammanagers: better insight in the decisions made by the driver and engineer/mechanic.
During the seminar you will learn about the most important topics which are related to the handling of a racing car, like tyres, KPI and Caster, Geometry, weighttransfer, principles of the anti-roll bar, springs, Dampers and Aerodynamics.

You will get most of it if you have a technical education or background, or when you are able to understand new concepts. Most important is that the participant is interested in the background of the handling of his racing car.

IN THE MEANTIME MANY PARTICIPANTS FROM GERMANY, THE NETHERLANDS AND BELGIUM, COMPETING IN ADAC GT MASTERS, MISC FORMULA CLASSES, VLN, TOP RALLY, AND EVEN FORMULA 1, HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS SEMINAR!

Get more out of your DATA-ACQUISITION SYSTEM by learning more about the dynamics of your car!
Do you know how your anti-roll bar really is working? Do you know when your shock absorbers are really effective, and when not? Do you really think that you will reduce roll by reducing rideheight? Have you got an idea why eg. your car is neutral in fast corners and under- or oversteered in slow corners? If you know the correct answers on all of these questions there is no need for you to follow this seminar. In all other cases: please subscribe....

Please see the tab ‘What you will learn’ for a detailled overview.
All participants will receive a colour seminar-book with all slides.
The seminar will be given in the English language.


TRAINING 'MAGIC NUMBERS'
At a more advanced level we offer the course 'Magic Numbers'. The content of this course is based on the book 'Praxislehrgang Fahrdynamik', which is written in the German language by my co-author Prof Dr Ralph Pütz and myself. However, this course will be english spoken and the handout will be in english too.
This course is based on the fact that nowadays 99,99% of the competitors in motorracing use an existing car, be it new or used. But the question is how well do we know our car? Do we know the rollmoment exact in numbers? Do we know how the rollresistance is being distributed over the front and rearaxis? Do we know how to measure the aerodynamic downforce and how this is distributed? What about the Ackermann geometry? etc...

During the course Magic Numbers the follwoing topics are being discussed: measuring all necessary dimensions of your own car, definition of over/understeer and how to express that in measerable numbers, tyres, springs, shockaborbers, anti-rollbar, geometry, differentials and aerodynamics. 

Currently no english course is being planned, but please be so kind to fill in your interest (at no obligation at all) in the tab 'Subscriptionform' and we will keep you up to date about planned date and location. Courses are planned for winter 2017 / spring 2018.



What we can offer more:

-  In-house training for your own team
-  individual consultancy
-  Support of tests at the track, including the preparation of it.
