Andy Brown has over 30 years experience of Race and Data Engineering in professional motorsport, ranging from Formula 1 to Indycar and everything in between. To date, Andy has won an impressive 11 major championships, including the 2011 and 2013 Indycar championship and claimed victory at the Indy 500 four times.
Since 2011, Andy started his own motorsport engineering consultancy, where he has specialised in Race Engineering for the likes of Chip Ganassi Racing, Nissan LMP1, several BTCC teams, Wirth Research, Honda Performance Development and many, many more. Now, he wants to teach you how to win in Indycar.
Although a type of formula racing that is similar to that of F3, F2 and F1, Indycar is actually much more challenging. The engineers have to determine the optimum setup to maximise performance at a diverse range of circuits including superspeedways, short ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits. This is where the experience of engineers such as Andy prove invaluable to a team.
At this year’s MIA School of Race Engineering, Andy will be giving an exclusive insight into the differences between Indycar and other types of formula racing and how this affects the car’s setup. He will also be giving you hints and tips on tyre engineering and strategy.
‘From a race engineering point of view, Indycar is an extremely interesting category of motorsport, and one that is not so known about in Europe. To be a well-rounded Race Engineer, you have to be able to adapt to the different challenges of different categories and I am looking forward to teaching this year’s students everything they need to know to be successful in Indycar.’
