Bill Milliken, arguably the father of the science of race car dynamics, has died at the age of 101. He started in aviation but moved to road vehicle dynamics later in his career. He was also a competitor in more than 100 races and wrote the 'bible' of race car dynamics. The 'Camber Car' was one of his more interesting projects!
