Reeves of Callaway Cars fame and I go way back to the time in 1986 when we made the decision to go for a naturally aspirated 4 cam engine (the LT5). We shared with Reeves the work we had done up to that point to develop a twin turbo Corvette. Reeves took this and made it his own, producing the Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette. This lead to the 250 + mph Sledge Hammer and an ongoing series of Callaway Corvettes, the latest being the C16.

The biggest issue facing the Corvette into the future is being able to maintain its extraordinary performance against the threat of fuel economy legislation. In this Podcast, I interview Peter Wright, ex Chief Engineer of the Lotus F-1 program, co-inventor of active suspension and now a consultant to F-1. We’re going to talk about design optimization in the digital world and F-1s mandate for energy recovery systems on board the race cars just one year out.

Peter and I are fellow inductees as Fellows of the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers). 20 to 25 Fellow grade memberships are conferred each year from a membership of about 80,000. Peter has written two books on F-1 racing which I highly recommend. Formula 1 Technology and Ferrari F-1, Under the Skin of the Championship Winning F-1 2000.
