Already, Jaguar Racing has made significant improvements to the car's performance. In addition to the extensive wind tunnel testing programme, there are two other means of analysing the aerodynamic efficiency of the car. An obvious one is to analyse the full sized racing car itself. This is done as a 50 Steve Nevey matter of standard procedure at any test or race, but is more effective when specific aero tests are conducted at purpose built testing grounds made available to Jaguar Racing by the Ford Motor Company, or sometimes at disused airfields.
