Round 2 from Phil Frank Designs.  In a separate note Phil mentioned that he is working with Dallara to get the CAD files to morph his design into a actual model.  See all the designs Here.

Super Speedway Design Explained….

High Down Force Package Explained…

Note from creator:

“Phil Frank, designer of the Saleen S7 presents the *pfd aerodynamic package for the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Dallara chassis. The innovative design is a blend of aerodynamics, engineering and traditional sculptural car styling, which is lacking from most race cars these days.

The fluid body forms flow uninterrupted from the top to bottom and front to rear. Large pontoon intakes with chrome induction Venturi command respect while the sculpted side canards and aerodynamic belly flows to the rear to become the integrated diffuser. The dramatic side profile is defined by the exposed carbon fiber blade behind the roll bar and the rear wheel splitters.

The low drag speedway configuration diverges from the road configuration with revised rear wheel splitters, single wing elements with carbon fiber vortex generators and carbon fiber induction Dagmars to maximize aerodynamic efficiency and speed.”

    I would love to get my hands on a CAD model of the Safety Cell. It would definitely take fan designs to the next level. Sign me up.

    Patrick, try to contact directly the Dallara factory. They are very helpful.

    With more of the downforce coming from the floor, shouldn’t the speedway wings have a shorter chord?
