Upside Down Race car Myth
Can an F1 or Indy car produce enough down force to drive upside down? We used a 70lbs exact scale (40%) replica of an Indy car for this simple demonstration. Since these cars run at low ride heights we had to come up with a way that someone could visually see the car stick to the ceiling and not just look like it was held there. View the demonstration to see how we accomplished this. The car must produce more than its weight in down force to overcome gravity and stick to the ceiling. In this case the car must produce more than 70lbs of down force. See what happens...
Vintage Test Drive of a 1969 Hemi Dodge Daytona Charger in Quebec Canada
This is a rare video of a 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger with a 426 Hemi engine being tested flat-out at Mont Tremblant in Quebec Canada by test driver Jacques Duval. Many people do not realize that the infamous Daytona Charger was actually more 70 Charger than 69 as it used the fenders and hood from the upcoming 70 Charger.

Formula 1 - Honda RA107 Windtunnel Test - Nadine Geary
The Honda RA107 in MIRA's windtunnel. Pretty rare footage, as full scale modern Formula One cars are rarely used for this purpose these days. Many thanks to Simon McBeath and Racecar Engineering Magazine for arranging this.
