You possess a sound understanding of the key trades needed to optimize all aspects of the race car, aerodynamic, handling, ride or tyre performance and have experience using state of the art tools and methods to assess them.

Experience with race car data acquisition software and hardware is essential. An interest in data analysis techniques and tools development will be beneficial.

Our trackside aerodynamicists operate directly at the track and remotely from the ops room, availability to travel and work race weekends is essential.

You excel under pressure, can take well-reasoned decisions in a time critical environment, and always ensure efficient communication whilst committing to deadlines.
