TCR cars were tested in the Pininfarina wind tunnel

31 January 2019

The process to establish the initial Balance of Performance of all TCR cars for the 2019 season began on Monday and Tuesday at the Pininfarina wind tunnel.
Sixteen different models from twelve brands underwent thorough tests for assessing downforce and drag.
One after the other the cars were placed in the wind tunnel and tested with a ride height of 80 millimetres and three configurations of rear wing inclination: 0°, +5° and -5°. The test of each car required approximately one hour, under the monitoring of TCR technical staff.
At Grugliasco, in the state-of-the-art wind tunnel with moving ground, were tested the TCR certified cars, plus the new Hyundai Veloster N, LADA Vesta Sport and Lynk&Co 03.
The BoP process is currently going on with engine tests on the dynamometer bench at ORAL Engineering.
