{Admin Note} With all of the excitement——and questions around the Future IndyCar Concept Announcement. We at thought we’d enlist our users to have fun with the open design concept that the 2012 IndyCar chassis will endorse. Thank you to Patrick Koepke, and congratulations to him for being the first fan to submit a design. Below is his note about how his design was created. Enjoy.

My name is Patrick Koepke. My inspiration for the design was to blend the old Dallara chassis design with more modern “wind-tunnel” inspired sculpting, including a progressive front nose layout that increases surface area for additional downforce (like a modern propeller.) The engine cowling maintains the current design intake with additional air flow channels, and the tail (in this case a super-speedway tail) is simplified with an additional vane to adjust.

What are your thoughts?
