This guide and textbook on motorsport engineering is written from a practical point of view. It offers a wide-ranging insight into the nuts and bolts technology of practical car racing from saloons and sports cars to open wheelers. It gives the aspiring race engineer the tools to do the job by explaining all aspects of race car technology and offering crucial insight into the essentials of the motorsport engineering industry.
For motorsport engineering students at all levels, this book particularly covers the examination syllabuses for IMI (the Institute of the Motor Industry), EAL and BTEC, and meets the CPD requirements of most engineering institutions. Each aspect of the race car is covered in a separate chapter with test questions and suggestions for further study at the end. Combining the key points from his previous publications Basic Motorsport Engineering and Advanced Motorsport Engineering, the author draws on a career in teaching and industry to create the must-have, all-in-one reference. It is an ideal companion for the practising owner, driver or race engineer (whether amateur or professional), a suitable introductory text for HND and degree students and a great point of reference for any other keen fans with an interest in motorsport.
