Tire spats

When I was working underneath my car, I noticed a rather unusual design of a tire spat/deflector or however you want to call that device.
I can't quite figure out what that channel above the deflector is supposed to do.
My best guess is it generates some kind of vortex or whatever.

Note that it is NOT in front of the tire, but moved quite a lot on the inside.
