RAETECH GT2 Porsche 2012 Season Review, 1 Feb 2015 [cached]
After a six year absence from the SCCA's National Championships, the RAETECH/Porsche driven by David Finch, President of both RAETECH and DAF Consulting, finished a very respectable fourth place in the RAETECH/Porsche 944 competing against the latest Porsches, Nissans, Mazdas and Toyotas.
It has been a long time away from actively campaigning the car for both the driver and the team. The past six years RAETECH has been focusing on other projects including developing a line of race car load sensors and precision electronics as well as the winning engine package use by Edison2 who took home the $5,000,000 Progressive Automotive X-Prize for fuel efficient cars.
Finch stated, "This attempt at the national championship was a test run for next year's 50th anniversary of the SCCA's National Championship.

"We had the right people in place to support DaimlerChrysler's return, but we knew that the demands of such a task would require more efficient software tools and a streamlined process," said RAETECH's owner David Finch.
The RAETECH team realized that its best opportunity for streamlining was to find analysis software that would work with various CAD software without requiring time-consuming data transfers.After conducting a search of engineering software, RAETECH chose Ansys software developed by Ansys, Inc."Ansys allows us to bring design data from many sources into an integrated environment.The time saved transferring information is time then devoted to optimizing the designs," said Finch.
Competing in a heavily engineered and mechanically demanding sport requires NASCAR teams to explore every inch of their automobiles, often looking to make minute changes that could provide an advantage to push them ahead of their competition."One of the methods to support [DaimlerChrysler's] goals (of a successful return to racing) was to utilize modern engineering technology to create solutions that would support its race teams," said Finch.The engineering team at RAETECH develops vehicle structure, suspension, and performance solutions in support of DaimlerChrysler and its Winston Cup and Craftsman Truck Series teams.
RAETECH engineers create and acquire racecar design data generated through a combination of CATIA, SolidWorks (both developed by Dassault Systemes), and Unigraphics (developed by Electronic Data Systems Corp.). Using the structural analyses capabilities of Ansys and its ICEM CFD pre- and post-processing solution, they bring various CAD models into Ansys seamlessly.The software decreases time spent on CAD data translations, increases analyses functionality, and eliminates the need for additional analysis software."Through the use of vehicle simulations, we are able to predict how the racecar will perform on every turn of the race track and make design decisions thanks in part to Ansys," said Finch.
