Apparently, Reynard are working with some IndyCar teams.

http://classic.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/134969

If only IndyCar would open up the rules and allow other chassis manufacturers. Maybe with the possibility of a new chassis in 2021, that could happen?

IZOD stopped being the series sponsor at the end of the 2013 season. Verizon are the current sponsors until the end of this season. A new series sponsor, from 2019 onwards is yet to be announced.

Let's hope they can get another chassis manufacturer in. If not, try and get some differentiation between Chevy and Honda but nothing as drastic as last time.

Alternatively, buy up a load of old Reynards and Lolas, .

The latest on the future of Belle Isle Indycar race: No decision has been made yet. From the Detroit Free Press:

Quote:
While officials on Tuesday shared good news that Belle Isle remains the most-attended state park in Michigan, a cloud of uncertainty hangs over the future of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix being held on the island.

The race has been the subject of recent protests by residents upset about the environmental impact on Belle Isle as well as the numerous disruptions to the park in the weeks surrounding the race. This is the last year of the current contract for the race, which runs June 1-3.

Council President Brenda Jones noted that she has continued to receive concerns from residents. Jones read a letter from a resident who wrote, "I am hoping we do not renew the Grand Prix. ... These are people I suspect never go to Belle Isle aside from the Grand Prix."

Here's a more detailed story on the future of the Belle Isle race from the Detroit News. The key points:
Quote:
The future of the Detroit Grand Prix remains up in the air as an existing agreement to host it on Belle Isle is set to run out this year and organizers discuss whether to drive ahead.

State Department of Natural Resources officials told Detroit City Council on Tuesday during an annual briefing on the island's progress that an existing five-year agreement to host the race was honored by the state when the DNR assumed management of the island as a state park Feb. 10, 2014, under a 30-year lease agreement with the city.

"So far, we have not received a request for going forward in the future," said Ron Olson, parks chief for the state DNR. "Right now, we're just taking care of this year, and we'll have to see when and if we get a proposal and then evaluate it."
And:

Quote:
[Grand Prix Chairman Bud] Denker said officials expect to make a determination by June or July. When asked if fans should be worried about the fate of the racing event, Denker said: "We don't know yet. We're debating it."
