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.

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