HOW A NEW CAR COMES TO­GETHER

Motor Sport News - - Btcc Preview: Subaru -

Team BMR takes de­liv­ery of the new RML parts, which will be in­cluded in all of the fron­trun­ning cars this sea­son. Ini­tial de­sign work takes place on the body­work, in­clud­ing the in­tri­cate front bumper ar­range­ment. More de­sign work is done to the aero­dy­nam­ics of the car, in­clud­ing the rear wing, which sits high.this is a ben­e­fit above other BTCC ma­chines, and some­thing the team is proud of.

The bodyshell is stripped and the team sets to work build­ing it in to a race ma­chine, with rollcages and struc­tural safety in mind. The bodyshell is math­e­mat­i­cally mod­elled to al­low the team to run the dy­nam­ics of the car on its com­puter sim­u­la­tion sys­tems.
