Expert Race Strategy System For The Indianapolis 500

9781442164529: Expert Race Strategy System For The Indianapolis 500

Expert Race Strategy System for the Indianapolis 500 paper was developed in 1986 - 1987. The paper, research, and computer system, were developed through a partnership of Truesports Racing and a Purdue University Industrial Engineering 690 design project by Scott Thompson. The computer system was later referred to as the Race Strategy Advisor and was used by numerous Indy Car race teams, Hendricks Motorsports IMSA GTP Corvette race team, and ESPN NASCAR telecasts beginning in 1987. I am publishing this book as a first time author to help capture a time when computer technology was beginning to make an impact on motor racing and race strategy.
