IndyCar’s new-look car for 2018 hit the track with several teams testing at Sebring last week.
The revised aerokit, running on the same Dallar DW12 chassis the championship has used since 2012, features a substantially overhauled aerodynamic package. A key goal of the new car has been to generate more downforce from the car’s floor rather than its upper surfaces in the hope this will improve racing.
The car has also shed the rear wheel guards which were introduced following a series of airborne accidents. The change has significantly reduced the car’s weight and shifted its centre of gravity forwards.
Among those running at the test were new team Carlin with one car for ex-Marussia F1 driver Max Chilton. Here’s a look at the cars in action.
