The 2006 VdeV Modern Challenge should welcome a new prototype this

and are building a new CN class car, the YCAR CN01.
been working for ten years with teams such as ROC Auto (he was the
track engineer of the Reynard Lehmann in 2001 and 2002 – so
he’s accustomed to success), JMB and Del Bello Racing, where
he was the team’s engineeer last year. Patrick Barbier is
also a former ROC Auto engineer.
chassis is constructed from steel, and is notably stiff. Both men
have taken great care with the aerodynamics, thanks to the use of
CAD and to their wind tunnel experience.
The suspension – with Olhins shock absorbers
– has been designed with suitable software. The gearbox is
a Hewland FTR. The YCAR is Honda-powered (240 hp) but can be fitted
with other engines on request.
A BMW-powered YCAR (with a specific gearbox and
different aerodynamics) is being studied for hillclimb purposes.
The first monocoque
is being assembled in YCAR Motorsport’s workshop, 385 rue
de la Follieuse 74800 LA ROCHE SUR FORON, Haute-Savoie, in the Alps.
