Past Event Highlights

In October SAE SoCal Hosted a webinar on the history of racecar wind tunnel testing in Southern California. 

During the 1980s to the early 2000s Southern California played a huge role in the development of racecar wind tunnel testing for open wheel and sportscar racing. This talk focused on the role Electramotive, Dan Gurney’s All American Racers, Swift Engineering, and San Diego State University played in the development of racecars and wind tunnel testing technology.  

SAE Members and guests were engaged with the presenters through the SAE SoCal Zoom interface a recording of the video presentations is available on the SAE SoCal YouTube Channel.
