Default flow across an aerofoil near to the ground

Hi!

From simulation, It can been seen that there is an increase in downforce when the aerofoil come close the ground ie: ground effects. but when the aerofoil comes close to a certain height, the downforce suddenly reduced drastically.

Do anyone know why?.

Thanks
