CFD for a Formula SAE car
I am working on a Formula SAE team and I am trying to develop the aerodynamics package for the vehicle. They only problem is my school does not have a CFD program. The team does have copies of Solidworks which does have limited CFD capability (only for internal flow). I was going to look at the possibly of getting sponsored by a CFD software company but I am not really sure what to look for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Robert,
I cant recall the post, but there has been postings on this forum sometime back (maybe a few months to a year) regarding exactly the same problem of modelling a race car with CFD. Maybe searching the archives maybe of help. Regards, Ganesh 
I used the search function and I couldn't really find anything as far as what I am looking for.

Robert,
a simple search on Google for "formula sae cfd" will bring you enough resources to start on this, especially the third link: http://www.sae.org/servlets/cdsNews?...ELEASE_ID=1086 You can also look at publications and case studies to see which CFD companies sponsored other teams and approach them. regards Lorenzo 
alternatively use an open source code such as openfoam
