And the text that goes with the image:

Do-it-yourself aero modifications can produce excellent results. Paul Costas’ record-setting tube-frame Camaro features a simple front splitter and rear wing, and the radiator air is ducted through the hood. The radiator ducting reduced under-hood pressure so much that it took a huge rear wing-angle increase to balance it.
From a good article over at Speed News:

Yeah, it's too bad we've "lost" some great info. The Wayback Machine only covers the first 2 pages. I may have some I've saved for personal review. PM if you'd like. Its not something that should be "posted."

Cheers - Jim

Yes, nice. aAd LARGE too. Better still the rear fender "treatment." Using the flying buttress to make a duct for the rear airfoil is something a few have done before. Notably Ferrari has a smaller version and certainly a few hyper-cars too.

Nice "reap."

The cutouts in the front fender flares are interesting. Definitely for aero reasons, as the water and dirt will be flying over the sides of the car.

Lots of hood ducts, must be for cooling radiators. Wing mounting also optimized.

Lol, the camera man jumps at 3:00 when they fire the car up.

Great idea until you vacuum up “who knows what.” Hyper car wars are heating up.
