Longitudinal dynamics of race cars
P. Porteš
pages 296 - +11p., full text

The article focuses on optimisation of gear ratios of race cars. Whereas gear ratios of production cars are a trade-off between various user requirements and manufacturer’s business plan, race car gear ratios are based on a specific assignment to cover given distance (usually one race lap) in a minimum time. In this article, we will describe a procedure of lap time calculation based on data measured and logged during the race or training.
