In the scientific design of racing facilities and cars, a strong interplay exists between the aerodynamic characteristics permitted by the vehicle formula and the banking present at each track. We explore this relationship and in particular the sensitivity of various car and track combinations to changes in nominal values for banking and aerodynamic performance. Specific example calculations for NASCAR and IRL/CART vehicles and tracks are given.
