can i add a book to this list...

Competition Car Aerodynamics: A Practical Handbook (Simon McBeath)

i know, i know, youre thinking "this book is already there though", well it almost is, the one above is the "Downforce" one, this book is the later revision of that, and goes into more depth on CFD and generally updates on the previous version

its a superb book, ive met Simon McBeath myself and he is a top guy, probably one of the most knowledgeable guys in the UK for aerodynamics, amongst other things

and the Katz book (top on the above list) is the car aerodynamics bible!! if you have even the remotest interest in this subject, you MUST own that book
