Linux kernel developer Dave Chinner spoke at a linux.conf.au recently about designing a race car. Thanks to Drew for sharing!
After I ran out of talent and had a high speed encounter with an immovable object in May 2016, I needed to build a new race car. The car I crashed is somewhat unique for many reasons – it’s a Locost Clubman. The car has a space frame chassis, based on the original 1957 Lotus 7 designed by Colin Chapman. In the early 1990s, Ron Champion published a Haynes manual titled “Build your own sports car for as little as £250” which was a step by step guide to fabricating and building the entire car. Essentially, it was the source code for the car.
