The NTT IndyCar Series and Red Bull Advanced Technology are pioneering single seater safety technology with the introduction of the aeroscreen which will be used by the IndyCar Series in 2020.
The new device has been tested by Chip Ganassi Racing and Team Penske with Arrow McLaren Racing SP and Dale Coyne set to test the device at Sebring International Raceway early next month. The teams have been delighted with the progress in developing the device and getting it ready for next season.
Scott Dixon and Josef Newgarden tested the device at Richmond Raceway which returns to the NTT IndyCar Series schedule next season with both drivers saying they had no issues with the device.
James Hinchcliffe will test the device for Arrow McLaren Racing SP on November 2 and will be joined by Dale Coyne with Vasser Sullivan Racing’s Sebastian Bourdais.
The new aeroscreen is a much better option for the NTT IndyCar Series compared to the Halo which is being used by Formula One.
The new aeroscreen will be fitted with a heat element to stop it from fogging up. The windscreen will also be fitted with tear offs similar to the ones used on helmet visors.
