Chip Ganassi Racing, Granta Design Partner

The collaboration will help engineers create a material data base.

Chip Ganassi Racing has partnered with Granta Design to create a software for selecting and implementing more effective and efficient materials for its race cars.

Granta has created a PC software application which, along with the team’s existing software, enhances and simplifies the search process for information on materials that are fundamental to the car design process, and then applies this information to make smart decisions on the use of those materials, the company states. CES Selector will help the engineering team compare and choose alternate materials to develop stronger, lighter, and more durable race cars. The software application will be used by the engineering departments across all of CGRT’s racing disciplines.

“We’re excited to partner with a proven innovator in the racing industry like Chip Ganassi Racing Teams. Granta tools will enable them to explore ground-breaking designs and select the very best materials to support them. Ultimately, it is about winning by staying ahead of the competition, and we look forward to helping the Chip Ganassi Racing Teams as they develop lighter, faster, and higher-performing race cars,” says John Twerdok, director of Sales at Granta Design.
