The new car will be available for track use in August and if approved could be used in IndyCar action in 2012. Those that bet on Indy are getting ready for this season as racing starts next month.
Indy betting had many of the IndyCar drivers excited about the new car. "On a scale of 1 to 10," Scott Dixon said, "it's an 11." He was not the only driver to love the car. "I'm ready to drive one," Dario Franchitti said. The group that designed the car is Delta Wing. The car’s engineer, Ben Bowlby worked for Ganassi Racing. Those that bet on Indy will notice that the new car will require less horsepower and be build at half the cost of current cars. Indy Racing League officials were there to see the new car. There is going to be a new chassis program in place in just a few months and Delta Wing is in the running. Three other manufacturers are also in the running. They are Lola, Swift and the current manufacturer, Dallara.
