Franklin should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Since CART, IRL, and F1 races are the only opportunity most people have to see how well sandwich composite construction holds up in a crash, many apparently come to assume that you have to have a $200,000 or $400,000 car to get that kind of strength. In reality, that kind of strength is inherent in almost any well made sandwich composite structure. The first person to survive a 200 mph crash while inside a sandwich composite monocoque was in 1983 at the Reno air races.
