Wirth Research is a group of innovative engineering companies specialising in research, development, design and manufacture for the motor racing industry and other high technology sectors.
Wirth Research offers flow simulation and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) services. The Business pioneers the use of advanced virtual engineering technologies, developed in-house, which enable the use of a complete simulated vehicle design, development and testing process. This reduces the need for wasteful manufacture of development models and prototypes.
Wirth Research is proud to continue its decade-long partnership with Honda Performance Development Inc (HPD) on the design, development and manufacture of the championship-winning ARX sports car programme, fielding cars in the LMP1 and LMP2 classes of the American Le Mans Series and the newly formed World Endurance Championship. In 2012 the cars scored numerous race wins in both series (including Sebring 12 hour and the Le Mans 24 hour races, in LMP2) and secured LMP2 class titles in both series, and the LMP1 class title in the American series.
From 2013 onwards, Wirth Research is continuing to collaborate with HPD to provide the Honda-powered IndyCar teams with advanced chassis technical support. This project includes the co-development of new aerodynamic bodywork kits that Honda are set to offer their teams when they are permitted.
