    everyone agrees, indy cars should have no high roll bar like they do now, turbo them so we don’t need them looking like formula 1 cars! 2006 lola’s and 2007 panoz chassis are examples of cars with low roll bars and no air scoop above the driver’s head

    Sorry to burst your bubble but I don’t agree, Travis. The Panoz G-Force was a sexy looking IndyCar!

    @Travis, those aren’t high roll bars, that’s an airbox. An ugly part of having a naturally aspirated engine in an open wheel car.

    There are some junior formula’s in Europe with naturally aspirated engines where the intake is on the side of the cowl. They have the traditional rollbar and not an airbox
