Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

Founded in 1994, the IndyCar Series traces it’s roots back to the Indianapolis 500 and American Championship car racing (known as CART). Names like Andretti, Unser, Foyt, Franchitti, Bettenhausen and so many more fill the history books.

IndyCar racing is without doubt the top tier of open wheel motor racing in North America, even featuring some familiar names to European Grand Prix racing fans that have come and gone. Cross-over between the two series has been surprisingly difficult for many drivers, however, with the last very successful driver to do so being Nigel Mansell.

IndyCar and Dallara worked to develop a faster, safer, Indy car with the DW12 (named after Dan Wheldon, the driver who helped develop it). Recent seasons using this car have been some of the most competitive in the long history of the sport.

In peak trim, the car is capable of some 750hp, and only weighing in at only 700-715kg (about half that of a typical road car), giving a power to weight ratio probably 6-10 times what most people are familiar with as their daily drive. The car is pretty much state of the art, featuring an advanced 2.2L twin-turbo engine, Xtrac sequential 6-speed gearbox, triple-plate carbon clutch, and carbon brakes to deliver extreme performance in every aspect. The chassis and body panels are all produced from carbon fibre, making the car both very strong, rigid and light.

This all makes the car very agile, fast, and when up to correct operating temperature, stable and predictable.

Our Indy car comes in three physically different Dallara DW12 chassis configurations and has two engine configurations, making a total of six technically different cars. Within the roadcourse configuration, we also have two tire options, Primary (black-sidewall) and Alternate (red-sidewall). This means effectively seven combinations.

We have two licensed vehicles, each with the specifications listed here:

Jack Hawksworth – #98 Honda – Bryan Herta Autosport
Sebastien Bourdais – #11 Chevrolet – KVSH Racing
