Abstract

This paper describes the design of a prototype racing car designed for racing Shell Eco-marathon. In particular, the assumptions have been made to the vehicle simulation model used to predict the race strategy. These assumptions are the basis for an integrated methodology for designing racing cars, which provide a three-year development plan of the vehicle. Additionally, there are modular telemetry system, and computer applications for data visualization in the race.
