The NTT IndyCar Series ushered in a new era in motorsport safety this week as testing of new for 2020 aeroscreen got underway at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda and Will Power in the No.12 Team Penske Chevrolet in action.
When you look at the before and after shots at the top the article you can see how the Red Bull Advanced Technology developed aeroscreen wraps around the cockpit ensuring greater protection for the driver.
The NTT IndyCar Series, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and chassis builder Dallara have done a fantastic job in designing, constructing and fitting the aero screen to the car. Both Scott Dixon and Will Power were delighted with the results of the test.
The next step will be a test on a road course with Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter Reay and Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud testing the device at Barber Motorsports Park on Monday.
The NTT IndyCar Series officials and teams will be hoping that the road course test on Monday is just as successful as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway test this week. Red Bull Advanced Technology have worked extremely hard on the design and integration of the aeroscreen with the chassis.
