BAR 007 - new turning vanes 27 May 2005

For BAR's return at the Nurburgring these follow a trend seen on other cars in recent races. The main turning vane is a horizontal fin, extending outwards from the outer-front edge of the sidepod (right-hand arrow). This is coupled with a horizontal, wing-shaped splitter at the same level (left-hand arrow). The aim is to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the bottom of the car and is an area being constantly evolved by most teams this year.
