Silverstone GP 2013

Prior to reading further, please note that:

Computer simulation provides an estimate of performance. This estimate is based on a necessarily simplified and idealized version of the racing car that does not and cannot fully represent all of the intricacies of the car in a racing competition. As a result, simulation results only represent an interpretation of the potential performance of the racing car. No guarantee or warrantee of performance in practice can be based on simulation results alone.

For the purposes of the challenge, the CFD analysis is aimed at providing an indicative performance of the racing car. Constraints of human and computer resources are driving the CFD analysis towards the selection of features based on robustness more than accuracy. One of the purpose of the 2012 test run is to assess that CFD analysis can be reliably applied to the design submitted with limited user input and constraint on the vehicle design.
