Here’s The Aero Kit IndyCar Will Use In 2018

IndyCar has taken the covers off the aero kit that the series will use from the 2018 season, following on from previous concept images.

The IndyCar series will have a new look in 2018. The aero bodywork kit for next season has now been revealed, with a more simplistic look.

Currently, the cars used by IndyCar feature bulkier, beefier aero on both street and oval courses. But that’s about the change.

The new aero kits will be used on the current Dallara DW12 chassis that’s been in the series since 2012 and will be tested in the summer.

At the moment engine suppliers Chevrolet and Honda also have their own aero kits but from 2018 the bodywork will be used by all teams.

The first configuration will be for ovals and the second for road and street courses. The above picture shows the 2018 kit with an outline of the current car.

The top right and lower left pictures show off the front and rear wings for the higher downforce road/street course configuration.

IndyCar’s 2018 aero kit throws back to the simpler designs of the past, with a lower engine cover, smaller rear wing and front wing planes. On road/street courses the rear wing is lower and wider too.
