Automotive aerodynamics

Automotive aerodynamics is the study of the aerodynamics of road vehicles.

The main concerns of automotive aerodynamics are reducing drag, reducing wind noise, and preventing undesired lift forces at high speeds.

For some classes of racing vehicles, it may also be important to produce desirable downwards aerodynamic forces to improve traction and thus cornering abilities.
