Here are Smitty’s video lectures on Introduction to Racecar Engineering assembled into one post. I am sure you will find these 20 videos to be of great value.
This video captures the first autocross run by Matt Clark at the 2018 FSAE Lincoln competition. If I remember correctly is was 62.7sec, just behind their earlier 61.9sec run. Matt’s second run, the final of four runs, was anticipated to be even better but there was a problem with the car.
This view of the course, driver, and front wheels is excellent for understanding the challenges of this competition.
