I always thought Indy Car was an open wheel series. I'm all for safety, but, if you caover up those rear wheels any more you certainly can't say that. I don't see this car having casual fans saying "I can't wait to catch the next race."
1. De-tuned engines
2. Ugly Car
3. Mediocure drivers

What's mediocure ? do you mean mediocre ? Bit harsh, some pretty good drivers there, maybe not F1 standard still very good.


It's an odd looking thing, looks like an LMS racer and an indy car have mated.

Didn't actaully read the artical did you Maxx?

It says the v6 has MORE power than the current and the rear wheels are hardly covered completely though the rear "bumper" addition is pretty obvious

Why Indy cars not use same chassis as F1 or similar to
GP2 Series, looks better nice. and with same chassis as
F1 or GP2 we will see if Indy Car is better than F1 or GP2
