Speed Science

What does it take to make a race car go fast? It’s more  than just the engineering and mechanics, components and car setup, teamwork and compromises made along the way that turn a great vehicle into a sharp, exceedingly fast race car.

It’s the connection between all these elements – along with the human element of expertly driving the car – that are needed to eek every ounce of fast out of a finely tuned machine.

Speed Science is a one-hour TV special, produced in 2010 by Rivet Entertainment for The Science Channel and Discovery HD Theater.

Speed Science explores these connections to discover how they compel a car – and its team – to go faster than anyone else. We follow a racing team as they turn a stock BMW M5 into a Grand Am race car. Shot in Chicago and Daytona.
