Chevrolet said the potential to produce an aero kit was one of the main reasons they decided to re-enter the IndyCar series in 2012. We have a feeling both Chevrolet and Honda learned from the aero kit development process, which was a fairly difficult task for designers as they had to work around the Dallara DW12’s existing body.
Director for Chevy’s IndyCar program, Chris Berube, recently explained how they developed the aero kits, tested them and produced them in an interview with the Verizon IndyCar Series at the recent Barber pre-season test. Berube’s team appears to have done a good job, seeing as the Chevys topped the leaderboard during testing.
Check out the interview below and keep an eye out for the Chevy IndyCars when the season gets going at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in Florida on March 27-29.
