Race Strategy

Next online module is taking place 10 December

To win races, you have to be on the right strategy. So, how do race teams define this strategy and how does this differ between racing categories?

Our Race Strategy online module will answer these questions and more. Taught by real race-winning engineers, you will learn the secrets behind optimising race strategy and the different strategic challenges of Formula 1 and Endurance Racing.

Tutors and schedule will be announced soon!

Module Programme*:

Session 1 – Formula 1 Race Strategy
Find out how F1 strategists calculate those all important factors that can make or break a race strategy, including tyre degradation, pit stop windows, tyre compound deltas, track evolution and much more.

Session 2 – Race Strategy Analysis
F1 teams simulate over 300 million permutations of each race. So how do teams analyse this huge amount of data to determine the winning strategy?  You will gain insight into how race teams simulate, analyse and optimise race strategy. Attendees will be guided through specific scenarios from different categories of motorsport and the strategic options available to the teams. Includes live demos of RaceWatch strategy software 

Session 3 – Endurance Race Strategy
Optimising a race strategy for 6, 12 or 24 hour racing requires a completely different approach. Find out how engineers adjust their race strategies to cope with ever-changing car, driver, track and weather conditions throughout an endurance race.
