What about a study on the possible effects of an "F-duct equivalent" in road cars? It might not be marketable, but it is valuable as a feasibility study and gives you some space to show creativity as well as technical skill. You would have to think of possible practical arrangements for these ducts, intake, outlet and control; as well as then analyze them properly.

would this work?: have a big fan on max and put a fire in front of it, and have the car on scales and there you have your own wind tunnel (downforce measurements only though) compltete with a smoke to visualize the air

We decided together that the investigation into the problems with overtaking due to the "dirty air" from the wake of the car infront was a good one to go for.
Another thanks for all the help and advice in the past few days.
I'm sure I'm going to become a very active member over the next few weeks/months
