That's on them for not knowing a YEAR ago that was a design element management was keen to implement. Or did they not google Champcar do get an idea?

Here are some renders of the 2018 car by one of the designers. I would be lying if I said it wasn't one of the best looking modern race cars.

Some reason, these don't show on Chrome, but so on Tapatalk. And they look good to me!

I wonder if the sidepods get nervous being so high off the ground.

Yeah, I didn't mean to be negative about it. Just joking about the ride height. I like it a lot, and I'm really enjoying the action shots. Can't wait to see the road course kit.

Why it took 7 years still amazes me, considering one of Dallara's original concepts for a new car wasn't too dissimilar.



Anyway, it's finally here and at least visually, is a vast improvement on what went on before, plus the shots of it on track look fantastic. As the car is tested and evaluated, it would be nice to see some visual differentiation between Chevrolet and Honda considered. Otherwise, I'm already looking forward to 2018.

MP's walk around from Racer of both the cars at the test is pretty good and lots of closeups.

Trackside Online reports that one of the laps during today's test was under the fastest lap of the race yesterday (65.96 seconds) and that it was done on black tires.

this is stunning. it is no Cosworth XFE in a Reynard or Lola but this is pretty exciting.

That Cossie by the way was one of my all time favorite engines sounded good and went well and so durable.
