The word 'ultimate' is always one to be used with great care, particularly when applied to motorsport projects, such is the speed with which technological development moves on. That said, we couldn't let the start of the 2011 hilldimb season pass without mention of Willem Toet's plan to build 'the ultimate hilldimber'. Unfortunately, we can't divulge the full story at this point because a the car isn't finished, and b we've been sworn to secrecy on the details for the time being. However, we...

Lotus And Dell

In 2006 BMW really opened the Formula 1 market up to high-powered computing with the installation of Albert 2, at the time one of the fastest computers in the world. Today every Formula 1 team, and many other professional motorsport operations, now use a reasonably powerful system, many of which exceed the performance of Albert 2. One of grand prix racing's smallest operations, Team Lotus, has partnered with Dell for its computing needs from a CFD cluster to track side laptops. Team Lotus uses...

Pull Rod Suspension

OMS takes its name from the initials of its principal, Steve Owen, spelled backwards. But since he started constructing hilldimb cars in 1985, Owen hasn't exactly looked backwards, For an entirely amateur category, the top-level hilldimb cars show immense engineering skill and know how. The front end of the OMSH5, for example, illustrates the range of composite and CNC capabilities OMS offers For an entirely amateur category, the top-level hilldimb cars show immense engineering skill and know...

Very Tight Packaging

In addition to the extreme weight saving measures, the 909 Bergspyder's packaging also broke new ground. It was the first time the Porsche engineers could design a chassis to suit the particular needs of a hilldimb course, and this resulted in a significantly shorter wheelbase and wider tracks compared with its predecessors. The wheels were literally mounted on each of the four corners of the car. Although there was very little of it, the balance of the weight was also considered a critical...

A number of cars this season have adopted the wide 'platypus' nose first introduced by Red Bull. The very high, wide and thin structures may not be aesthetically pleasing, but apparently they work in the wind tunnel, as James Key explains 'It's a tricky aerodynamic thing. The Sauber C29 had a high nose last year, but a different concept and a different shape. Ever since the 2009 regulations came in, you had this FIA-prescribed centre section of the front wing. It left that area difficult to do...
