By 2007 the Japanese import scene in Australia was well and truly flourishing with many importers and workshops building all myriads of demo vehicles with many following all the Japanese build trends of the time.

Guest blog. Andrew Brilliant -Aerodynamicist

 

This week we introduce Andrew Brilliant.

Andrew is an American aero and data engineer that resides in Japan and contracts to Super GT teams.

He has worked in both Indy-car and American Le Mans series and whilst there are a few people around with the high level of knowledge that Andrew possesses most are working in high level positions in highly funded professional race teams and would not give us the time of day. The difference with Andrew is that his personal passion is Time Attack racing and this has seen him firstly put his own Mitsubishi Eclipse at the front of the “street” class and then help several of the other teams dramatically reduce their lap times through aerodynamic improvements most notably the FX Motorsports NSX that has been dominating some rounds of the Redline series.

We speak with Andrew and ask him a bit about Aero.
