Nascar — The Car of Tomorrow

www.blacktree.tv Nascar Nextel Cup Chase…. Jeff Bodine discusses the Car of Tomorrow On January 12, 2006, NASCAR announced a universal car named “Car of Tomorrow” (or “COT” for short) after a seven-year design program sparked mostly due to the death of Dale Earnhardt Sr., one of the sport’s premier superstars, in a final lap crash during the 2001 Daytona 500. [1] The then-current cars were based on Holman Moody’s 1966 Ford Fairlane. [2] The primary design considerations were “safety innovations, performance and competition, and cost efficiency for teams.” [3] All cars are required to fit the same set of templates, using a device that has been named “the claw” that is designed to fit over the new cars. In the first two races at Bristol and Martinsville, the garages were opened one day early and the inspections took up to ten hours so that everyone (teams, officials, etc.) could get a better grip on the new unified template. nascar’s old rules had a different set of templates for each manufacturer (Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and Toyota). NASCAR has frequently adjusted the rules to ensure that different car manufacturers have relatively equal cars. The universal body of the Car of Tomorrow will eliminate these problems, but could cause many more unforeseen problems. The car is advertised as reducing dependence on aerodynamics. It features a detached wing, which has not been used since the Dodge Charger Daytona and Plymouth Superbird in 1970. [4] The windshield is more upright
