How motor racing has changed, or even saved, your life

It’s created heroes, villains, and plenty of bedroom poster cars. The tech used to make the race cars go further for longer will have, in some form, trickled down. The first mass-produced car to use them, though, was 1955’s Citroen DS. The first race car to do this was the Lotus 25 in 1962. As the tech developed, its use in road cars became more prevalent as well. In the 80s, though, Audi used it to give its rally cars an edge in competition. Race cars need to be as efficient as possible when it comes to movement. We may not be as far from a flying car as you might think.
