About the Class

Speed!

Velocity and management of speed through angles of banking have impacted the design and function of race cars since NASCAR’s inception. Students will utilize a series of cars (remote, CO2 and future design) to determine the ideal speed on different track surfaces and banking to make project-based recommendations. Session includes program focus challenge in the computer-simulated race experience.
