ACE is a solutions provider that drives innovation

ACE offers a unique $125M Facility with world leading capabilities and dedicated research and testing support staff. This includes a signature Climatic Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel not found or duplicated anywhere in the world.  ACE offers the wind tunnel, climatic chambers, anechoic structural durability chambers, and integrated research and training facilities to industry and researchers.   

Recently upgrading to add a “Moving Ground Plane” to their existing Climatic Wind Tunnel. The MGP simulates a road moving under a vehicle, reproducing the aerodynamic forces against vehicles and can measure the physical characteristics in real-world conditions.  ACE has a “Plug and Play” swap between a dynamometer (or dyno) and the MGP.   The ONLY tunnel in the world to share the same airflow for both full powertrain and thermal development on a dyno and world-class aerodynamic force measurement using a MGP. 

The Moving Ground Plane will give Motorsports and OEM’s the tools to conduct research in a high-tech environment, aiding companies and researchers to create new energy-efficient products such as active aero, maximize energy efficiency, and reduce carbon emissions.  Find more information HERE

FIA Girls ON track

It always requires courage to be different. Girls more than anyone need to be given the right tools early on to pursue the career of their choice, particularly in male-dominated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. In this way, they become role models for the next generation of female talents.

 The FIA has made it its mission to drive female talent, inspiring the next generation to challenge preconceptions and prejudices in the world of motorsport and in STEM careers.  We aim to raise the curtain on a new era in which daring to do something different is praised and encouraged.

Through “FIA Girls on Track”, we are offering a unique platform: an activity-based experience at the Drive Festival, for girls aged 8-18, with 4 different activity stations representing difference careers in motorsport. Girls on Track events have been held around the globe, and this year’s event at the Drive Festival will be the very first one offered in Canada/USA. Participation is free of charge, and each participant will be given a souvenir.
