The Racing Academy project provides a gaming environment for virtual automotive engineers and racers to recreate the experience of driving automobiles, modelling how cars behave and react. Students can change the vehicle parameters (such as the engine, transmission, tyres and suspension) in order to optimise the vehicle performance and get a better understanding of the system dynamics that influence behaviour.
