Definition of ground effect in English:
The effect of added aerodynamic buoyancy produced by a cushion of air below a vehicle moving close to the ground.
- Race cars are usually fitted with spoilers and ground effects to improve aerodynamics and thus, its acceleration and fuel economy.
- Its weight/power ratio plus its ground effect aerodynamics should allow the car to withstand comparison with the GT cars for a much smaller outlay and lower season costs.
- The ground effect cars of the early 80s were generating forces dangerously close to the point where drivers could start blacking out behind the wheel.
