Sutherland Ben have been supportive of our team throughout the whole F1 experience. We attended a workshop run by them on how to more effectively speak about our product.
Our team received industrial aid from Railcorp's Structural Engineer, Grant who advised us on the movement of air on and around our rear aerofoil and skirt. He taught us about the theory of lift and how it is applied in the movement of our car. We checked the information through the Wind-Tunnel program and found the information he provided us with was correct. Through trial and error we found two ways in which we could implement his theories in the design of the car by adding the rear “skirt”.
The wind tunnel results were analysed by Malcolm from Wind Foil Engineering, which assisted us investigate drag issues.
The Design Engineer has collaborated with Maurice who is a Civil Engineer at GHD. Many hours were spent discussing the curve of the back side pod and how innovation in this area may help gain speed.
Engadine Rotary Club donated platinum sponsorship after hearing team Rapid Racing present at a formal meeting. They were very impressed with the design and engineering knowledge of the team.
Members of the Lions Club of Engadine heard of our involvement in ‘F1 in Schools’ at School Presentation Night 2011. A representative came to school the next day with a gold sponsorship cheque and best wishes.
