The HYLO (High yaw lift off) is a new part designed by Audi Sport for the rear wing support pillars of DTM race cars. It is aimed at increasing safety during accidents. Thanks to the new part and its increased surface area, the aerodynamic forces of lift are reduced during accidents wherein the car has spun and is moving sideways through the air. At the same time, the speed at which these types of accidents occur is reduced. The HYLO was seen for further testing during the official DTM test days at the Nürburgring, when it was fitted to the Audi RS 5 DTM test car, which was running with Mike Rockenfeller’s Twin Busch livery design.
