Aerodynamic optimization of a rear spoiler configuration (FIA GT3 race car)

After more than twenty years, ALPINA Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH + Co. KG returned to international motor racing with the completely newly developed BMW ALPINA B6 GT3 race car. In 2009, the factory team participated in the FIA GT3 European Championship, the German ADAC GT Masters and other selected races. FluiDyna supported ALPINA in its comeback.

FluiDyna contributed to ALPINA's success in the FIA GT3 European Championship by analyzing the aerodynamic characteristics.

In addition, we optimized parts of the AeroKit (front apron, tail plane). For instance, we examined various tail plane profiles at different blade angles, subsequently deducing an optimized blade profile.
