Le Mans 2003The intake in front of the rear wheel is for rear brake cooling.
Petit Le Mans 2004Cooling hose for the brake and caliper connect to the brake airbox that is intergral to the sidepod structure.
Le Mans 2005Creation's DBA sprouted a more aggresive brake duct inlet in 2005 (shown here at Le Mans).
Le Mans 2003Note the internal shaping in the engine bay that forms an air smoothing internal fender in front of the rear wheel.  This helps clean up the air flowing around the tire that has been directed there from the radiator, and attempts to control the rather chaotic internal airflow.
Petit Le Mans 2002The very diminutive 3.4 liter Zytek V8 power plant and three years of engine installations on the DBA, note small changes in radiator plumbing, heat shielding, and exhaust header design:

Petit Le Mans 2004The boomerang air intake.  Note the legality structure below the intake.  It helps maintain the dimensional regulation that states that engine intakes cannot be more than 20 cm above the bodywork.
