The alternative to straight strakes is to have them splayed.



It may not show at this angle (never saw the car again) but the fences inside the wheels are angled outward the width of the tires. This example is sized to the max of the class racing rules. I can see it doing triple duty:
separate wheelwell and underbody flow
diverging duct for the underbody
open-sided wheel spat
