English term or phrase:slipstreaming
As a car moves it has to push through the air. As it accelerates this push gets harder and slows down the car's acceleration. A second car following closely behind this first car will be shielded from the push through the air and so can accelerate to higher speeds. When it is going fast enough the second car can use this to his advantage by building up extra speed to overtake. This effect is called slipstreaming.
