The best books on race car performance analysis

Post

Hi,
which are the best books on race car performance analysis?
I would like to focus on performance parameters estimation using GPS telemetry data.
I'm still learning English so please excuse me if my English is not good enough and feel free to correct me via PM if you want.

What's your education background (i.e. mechanic, engineer, accountant) and what level of knowledge are you hoping to acheive? (hobby or professional).

Nevertheless of the level:
Analysis Techniques for Racecar Data Acquisition by Jorge Segers

I think there you should find everything

To get the funadmentals of handling I'd recommend Guiggiani and to avoid anything motorsport related (books, videos, seminars etc). Is your Aerospace background dynamics related by any chance? If so it's a good head start and Milliken would also be a good reference however I prefer Guiggiani because it's covers the fundamentals much more comprehensively than Milliken - especially transient dynamics.

For more applied stuff related directly to data analysis, I don't have a lot of sources I've personally tried, but there is a facebook group called Advanced Racecar Data Analysis which had a post on exactly this topic pretty recently:

Yes, it is.
In the last twelve years I was in charge for the development of the flight dynamics simulation models for pilot training simulators.

Ok, interesting. Milliken's part on steady state vehicle dynamics is basically flight dynamics applied to a car. I can't remember if Guiggiani has the same approach or not. If so then that would be the only book youd need. If not then would be good to have them both.

Ok thank you!
I have something to study when I sunbathe! :D
