{Admin Note} With all of the excitement——and questions around the Future IndyCar Concept Announcement. We at IndyCar.com thought we’d enlist our users to have fun with the open design concept that the 2012 IndyCarchassis will endorse.  For more information please visit the www.indycar.com/2012 page for interviews, car information and of course…the details on how you can design your own concept.

Below is a note from the creator Daniele

“Good evening! (Here in Italy are 10 pm)

I finished the work, and already I’m thinking of other ideas.

It ‘hard to say what has inspired me. I thought everything worked on the car IndyCar, CART and Champ Car, F1 and prototypes. Certainly when I saw the base of the frame proposed by Dallara, I thought of a project PORSCHE (80) which was to run the Indianapolis 500 but was rejected by Indycar. The project had the details too different from standard stomachs and short rates and a kind of rear bumper from which arose the classical wing. In practice an IndyCar 2012.

Hence my project: front and rear wings of simple design and easily adjustable, with large bellies and large side vents to the rear (hidden from bulkheads) and strong protections to prevent “hooks” between wheel and wheel.

The side pods are similar to those used in the current season. The sides are closed by vertical sides that conceal the shape of “coke” and extractors for hot air radiator. They are then placed in front of the rear wheels, two wings of support. The shape of the upper part of the side pods create a slight wing, with a low pressure area near the rear end. A similar concept was inspired by the wing-car of the early ’80s.
The shape of the rear bumper is inspired by the car involved in the LeMans class. Profile smudge up, become more of mini wings.

I then used the F-Duct principle used by some F1 Team. The vents placed in the top of the pipe used to funnel ridurrne effect. What may seem an airbox is actually a sort of funnel directed to the rear wing. The excess air is dissipated by the side vents. It would be good to see the shape of the turbo engine.

The wing placed behind the front wheel has a reinforced bulkhead which, in theory, two functions. And ‘a bulkhead and aerodynamic another block to prevent the front wheels are properly engaged with each other. Recall that all incidents which take off of a car have resulted from contact of the front wheels being the most lightweight of the car. Detachment from the ground is because the air enters under the car, finding a flat surface and causing the takeoff.Another bulkhead would prevent direct contact between the wheels (considering the notorious fragility of the forewings).

My proposal, in practice, wants to be a logical step forward without creating a brutal separation from the current car. Let’s say it is the natural evolution of a subject they like, and so, the millions of fans of IndyCar. I leave you reviews.”
