Ricardo PLC and Duke Motorsports Team Up for 2020-2021 Formula SAE Season

August 3, 2020

 

Duke Motorsports is excited to partner with Ricardo PLC for the 2020-2021 Formula SAE racing season. As partners, Ricardo PLC will provide Duke Motorsports with full access to Powertrain simulation softwares such as WAVE, IGNITE, and RDM. Ricardo's gas dynamics simulation tools allow for robust, in-depth powertrain modeling in order to maximize power and speed output from the engine. "We're really excited to get working and plugging in our FZ-07 model into Ricardo WAVE to take full advantage of the resources at hand to get the most out of our engine in terms of power and on-track speed, especially in our efforts to shift from a naturally aspirated powertrain system to a turbocharged system," said Duke Motorsports team lead, Edgar Uribe III.
