Air Dam:


Air Dam
An aerodynamic aid placed across the lower nose of the car to prevent the energy consuming and dynamically un-stabilising effect of air being forced under the car. Device fitted as low as possible at the front of the car with the object of forcing more air round the car and less underneath, thereby creating a measure of downforce, reducing aerodynamic lift and increasing straight-line stability.
