The dominant factor of a solar car is running resistance, especially aerodynamic drag; and the reduction of the CD (drag coefficient) × A (frontal projected area) value is a crucial task to maximize the performance of a solar car. This paper will introduce the aerodynamic approach of the '96 Honda solar car which participated in the World Solar Challenge, the world's top solar car race. © 1998 Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan, Inc. and Elsevier Science B.V.
