In addition, he conceived and designed all components of the March active suspension system,[citation needed] which ran successfully in February 1989. Simtek Simtek Research, was founded in 1989 by Max Mosley and Nick Wirth. It originally was involved in many areas of Formula One, including wind tunnel construction and chassis building for third parties. Wirth was previously employed by March Team owner Mosley. From October 1993 to June 1995, Wirth was founder, owner, and technical director of Simtek Grand Prix, a Formula One racing team that first appeared in the 1994 Formula One season.[4] Simtek Research provided the team with engineering and design for the cars. Simtek suffered a difficult first season and eventually pulled out of Formula One during the 1995 season which forced Simtek Research into bankruptcy.

The car that Wirth designed for use in the 2010 season, the Virgin VR-01, is the first Formula One racing car designed entirely with computational fluid dynamics with no use of traditional wind tunnels during the design or build process.[5] References ^ http://www.virginracing.com/team/ ^ http://www.virginracing.com/team/nick/ ^ http://www.autofieldguide.com/articles/100101.html ^ http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/heartland-of-formula-one-1590598.html ^ http://www.racecar-engineering.com/news/cars/435225/wirth-research-breaks-new-ground.html External links Profile at grandprix.com Profile on the Virgin Racing website v • d • e Simtek Founders : Nick Wirth | Max Mosley Drivers: David Brabham | Roland Ratzenberger | Andrea Montermini | Domenico Schiattarella | Jean-Marc Gounon | Jos Verstappen | Taki Inoue Formula One cars: S941 | S951 v • d • e Virgin Racing Team Principal: John Booth Personnel: Etienne de Villiers | Graeme Lowdon | Nick Wirth | Richard Branson Former personnel: Alex Tai Current drivers: 24.
