IndyCar Series design consultant Chris Beatty, along with IndyCar Series Head of Aerodynamics, Tino Belli and chassis builder Dallara Chief Aerodynamicst Dialma Zinelli have all been presented with the prestigious Dino Toso Award for their work in developing the universal aero kit that was introduced by IndyCar in 2018.
Tino Belli commented on the news saying:
The awards at the World Motorsports Symposium are decided by industry chiefs, so to get recognized by them is a massive honor. “INDYCAR, Dallara and Chris Beatty worked very well collaboratively to create an effective and nice-looking race car. It really ticked all the boxes that we were trying to accomplish in terms of competition, aesthetics and safety.
IndyCar Series President of Competition and Operations Jay Frye commented saying:
“Remember, this process started in the spring of 2016 and think about all that’s happened between then and now – the design, development, on-track testing and a full season of racing. “Overall, this car has exceeded expectations, and we couldn’t be more proud of these guys and happy they’ve been recognized for their incredible efforts.”
