INDYCAR: Dallara Announces Facility Plans

Post by TopContender on Wed Aug 04 2010, 21:53

This new guy has come up with some really creative ideas on how to get people back to the track. Anyone can develop an aero kit for the cars, and sell it to the teams. For example Boeing could develop a kit. Pabs could create a kit, and license Dallara out to sell and make it. NASCAR is taking a major hit so the time is now for IndyCar to take back racing.

The IndyCar Safety Cell will be the core of the next generation of IZOD IndyCar Series car. Entrants and constructors, including Dallara, will have the opportunity to “dress” the rolling chassis in aero kits (front and rear wins, sidepods and engine cover) for the series’ diverse set of racetracks that they will market to teams. The rolling chassis will cost $349,000 – a reduction of almost 50 percent of the current race car -- and the aero kits will have a price ceiling of $70,000.



Dallara will encourage and welcome other manufactures, shops and motorsports industry suppliers to expand their business around its facility in Speedway, to create a ‘motorsports valley’ for exchanging the know-how and developing activities to increase more jobs in engineering and motorsports industries,” said Stefano Deponti, Dallara Automobili’s director of U.S. operations.

This sounds pretty interesting.

It does, and the illustrations have enough difference to see some variation.

Are they looking at more road courses and fewer ovals? CART used some good circuits, and the US has plenty of good road courses (something that infuriated me with the last USGP choice).

Let's see what happens.

Have they any plans for the manufacture of toasters, now that the defunct USF1 have released their grip on that gap in the market...?
