999 overtakes and counting is the impressive tally for IndyCar just 4 races into the 2018 season. Much of the credit for even closer racing in the world’s most diverse motor racing championship goes to the universal aero kit introduced this year.
Aerokit helps IndyCar gain momentum a decade on from the end of ‘the split’
Aimed at improving the already exciting IndyCar spectacle and cutting costs, the kit has proven to be a huge success thus far. Tested and raced on street, road and short oval courses already, the aero kit is helping the series gain important momentum a decade after the reunification of American open-wheel racing.
Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid sat down with former Indy 500 winners Scott Dixon and Ryan Hunter-Reay, plus rookie sensation Robert Wickens and America heroes Marco Andretti and Graham Rahal to discuss the aero kits impact.
Learn how the reduction in downforce and better use of the underside of IndyCar’s spec Dallara chassis has had a positive impact on the series.
