Application CFD analysis has played an important role in the performance of winning motor racing teams this year. The dominant Ferrari Formula 1 Motor Racing Team claimed both the Drivers' and Constructors' World Championships. The Ferrari Technical Team utilized extensive CFD simulations with FLUENT to hone the aerodynamics package.

At the Indy 500 race last May, cars manufactured by Italy-based Dallara Engineering finished 1-2-3. Dallara recognized that CFD was essential to their aerodynamic design process and they chose FLUENT to be an integral part of it.

And in the competitive world of NASCAR racing, CFD has found a home in one of the best teams - Joe Gibbs Racing.

Team owner Joe Gibbs remarked, "To win at anything you have to surround yourself with the best. That is why we use FLUENT CFD software to visualize and analyze fluid flows such as air flowing over the vehicle or water flowing through the cylinder head. FLUENT is an integral part of keeping our race teams at their best."
