Join us in this episode as we delve into the fascinating world of aerodynamics with Ido Waksman, an aerodynamic engineer at Pratt Miller. The company that builds the C8R GT3 cars. With a rich background that includes work with Honda as an aero dynamist in Ohio, Ido shares the intricate steps involved in transforming the C8R base model into a high-performance GT3 racing car. Discover the challenges and regulations set by the FIA for GT3 cars, exploring the aero and body considerations.

In our conversation, we tackle the age-old debate: multiple race cars or streamlined working cars? Uncover the unique insights that reveal the commonalities among car development, where every second in a real car wind tunnel costs a staggering $1. Learn about the meticulous precision demanded in the industry—drop a tool, and it's dollars of valuable time lost. And yes, we agree, wind tunnels can be a bit dumb for some testing.

Ido also draws inspiration from the world of Formula 1, offering a nuanced perspective on how F1 designs can be incorporated into GT3 cars, all while emphasizing the need for a discerning approach. Buckle up for a riveting exploration into the world of aerodynamics, racing, engineering ingenuity , and hot takes with Ido Waksman.
