Executive Summary

Triple Eight Race Engineering began developing its car for the 2007 race season but hit a major snag when the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) adopted a new set of regulations. As a result, the car it had been racing could no longer compete and they were forced to switch to an entirely different model, with a mere six month design-to-racetrack development cycle. Triple Eight put their AMD Opteron processor-based workstations with ATI FireGL graphics accelerators to the test, modeling all car components in Autodesk Inventor, a complex 3-D CAD design package. After a great deal of success with the AMD-based workstations, Triple Eight decided to implement AMD Opteron processor-based HP ProLiant servers in its data center.
