Based on the principles of engineering science, physics and mathematics, but assuming only an elementary understanding of these, this textbook masterfully explains the theory and practice of the subject.?? Bringing together key topics, including the chassis frame, suspension, steering, tyres, brakes, transmission, lubrication and fuel systems, this is the first text to cover all the essential elements of race car design in one student-friendly textbook. ?It avoids the pitfalls of being either too theoretical and mathematical, or else resorting to approximations without explanation of the underlying theory.? Where relevant, emphasis is placed on the important role that computer tools play in the modern design process.

This book is intended for motorsport engineering students and is the best possible resource for those involved in Formula Student/FSAE. It is also a valuable guide for practising car designers and constructors, and enthusiasts.

An innovative text covering the fundamentals of design including the chassis frame, suspension, steering, brakes, transmission and fuel systems using the basic principles of engineering science and mathematics. For students on motorsport degree courses, those involved in Formula Student/FSAE and practicing car designers and constructors.
