In looking at some of the most successful hill climb and time attack vehicles, those running substantial front splitters as part of their aero package frequently have very large end/spill plates on them. Key examples would be the Peugeot T16 at this year's Pike's Peak, and several variations of those driven by Tajima also at Pike's Peak.
Can anyone here enlighten me as to the function and benefits of these massive end plates, and how the advantages may outweigh the resultant drag?
