Join Moderator Sam Lagozzino for an insight into Aerodynamics, when he is joined by former Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team, Aerodynamicist - Kyle Forster PhD. Kyle will share his journey from Australia to the most successful F1 Team on the circuit. Along with an analysis of different racecar types, and an overview of techniques and methodology. Comprising; aerodynamics components, rules and regulations constraining performance and how to test components.


Ticket prices

Members: $50

Non-Members: $70

Students: $30


Kyle will provide tools and advice for aerodynamicists, including:

  • Aerodynamic components: wings, winglets, diffusers, curtains, fans, and more.

  • Constraints: Rules and regulations that control aerodynamics performance and financial constraints of developing aerodynamics parts.

  • Testing: Aero components, pitot tubes, etc.

  • Tuning: How to tune a vehicle to optimise its aerodynamic performance.

  • Compromise: The compromise between downforce and drag, aero grip vs mechanical grip


Who should attend

  • Engineers working in the automotive industry

  • Automotive technicians who want to understand the engineering behind the aerodynamic performance

  • Students preparing an FSAE car who would like to understand racecar aerodynamic design and set-up

  • Anyone with an interest in how a racecar's aerodynamics work and are tuned for their intended purpose.

  • Students studying engineering, who want to know how a racecars aerodynamics works and are tuned.


Presenter - Kyle Forster PhD

Director & Lead Aerodynamicist

JKF Aero

Kyle graduated from the University of New South Wales with a PhD in Aerodynamics. Immediately placing in his role at Mercedes AMG as an Aerodynamicist for the Petronas F1 Team.

His research has been published in top-ranking engineering journals, and he created the popular YouTube channel 'KYLE.ENGINEERS' which currently has more than 100K followers, to further motorsports education in the public domain. In his spare time, he designed, built, and raced his own buggy in the NSW Off-Road Racing Championship.
