6 quizzes on karting aerodynamics

TKART Staff
10 December 2022 • 5 min. read
Although aerodynamics (and its efficiency) is a relatively recent issue in the world of karting, it is undeniable how it plays a fundamental role in maximizing performance. We therefore collected some questions/curiosities on the subject from our readers (we report them below) and Davide Gaggianesi (member of the research and development team of the KG Karting company) helped us to answer them:



1. A RADIATOR PARALLEL TO THE GROUND WOULD ALLOW THE REDUCTION OF DRAG BUT IT IS NOT USED BECAUSE IT IS PROHIBITED BY THE REGULATIONS

2. THE DRIVER'S BODY CAUSES MOST OF THE DRAG IN A KART

3. THE SIDE FAIRINGS DO NOT AFFECT THE AERODYNAMICS OF THE KART BECAUSE THEY ARE "HIDDEN" BY THE FRONT WHEELS

4. THE NEXT GENERATION FRONT SPOILERS WITH A VENTURI CHANNEL DECREASE THE DRAG BUT GIVE NO BENEFITS IN TERMS OF LOAD ON BENDS

5. THE POSITION OF THE SEAT PLAYS AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN THE AERODYNAMIC CONFIGURATION OF A KART

6. KART WHEELS GENERATE LITTLE DRAG BECAUSE THEY ARE SMALL COMPARED TO THOSE OF A SINGLE-SEATER
