I've noticed on the F1 cars and porsches, etc. There are some aggressive double stacker rear wings.
Would there be an advantage to putting such a wing on a high HP lotus?
Or negligent advantage due to low HP and low center of gravity.

I doubt you'd have enough horsepower to make that effective for road racing, but at the autocross it might help.

Double/triple wings create more downforce. It all depends on your needs.

Fred Zust uses a big double or triple wing. Those wings produce great downforce even at low speed. If you are track racing it might be too much. But Fred is into autoX so this is perfect for him, plus he has the power to overcome the drag.

With big rear wings it becomes quite hard to balance the front DF to match the rear. Especially on street cars. On a formula car, you can add a double wing on the front as well. Somethig to consider.
